HBO Max Orders Ava DuVernay Drama ‘DMZ’ to Series

“DMZ,” based on the DC comic series, is set in the near future when America is embroiled in a bitter civil war, which has left Manhattan a demilitarized zone (DMZ), destroyed and isolated from the rest of the world. It chronicles the harrowing journey of fearless and fierce medic Alma Ortega (Dawson), who sets out on a harrowing journey to find the son she lost in the evacuation of New York City at the onset of the conflict. – Will Thorne, Variety »
