CBS TV Studios has reportedly begun development on a female-led reboot of “Zorro” for NBC as part of a first-look deal with Ben Silverman and Howard Owens’ production company Propagate.
Alfredo Barrios Jr. will pen and executive produce the project described as a modern-day retelling of the Zorro mythology that follows Z, a female descendant of a warrior bloodline who will go to great lengths to protect the defenseless in her community.
The property has been adapted numerous times onto film and once onto TV back in the 1950s. Many today are mostly familiar with it via 1998’s acclaimed Martin Campbell film “The Mask of Zorro” starring Antonio Banderas.
