Watch the Trailer for HBO Max's 'DMZ' Limited Series Starring Rosario Dawson

HBO Max has dropped the official trailer for its upcoming four-part miniseries DMZ.

Based on the DC Comics book series of the same name, the Rosario Dawson-starring show is set to debut later this month on March 17.

Created by Roberto Patino, DMZ takes place in a dystopian New York City where a mom (Dawson) is looking for her son amid a second civil war. Benjamin Bratt, Hoon Lee, Freddy Miyares, Jordan Preston Carter, and Venus Ariel co-star. Rutina Wesley, Nora Dunn, Jade Wu, Rey Gallegos, Mamie Gummer, Agam Darshi, Juani Feliz, and Henry G. Sanders will also be in the limited series.

The official synopsis is as follows: “DMZ leaps off the pages of the DC acclaimed graphic novel into the visual landscape of a dangerous and distorted Manhattan as one woman navigates a demilitarized zone in a harrowing quest to find her lost son.”

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring this epic to the screen with my boundary-pushing partners at WBTV and HBO Max, a sublime cast led by Rosario and Benjamin, and my partner and friend, the inimitable and ever-inspiring Ava DuVernay,” Patino said in a statement. “DMZ offers up an explosive playground which, more than anything else, exalts the resilience of community and the human spirit. I can’t wait to welcome the die-hard fans of the comic books and new viewers alike to this intoxicating, haunting and inspiring world.”
