Buckle up! Paragon: The Shadow Wars, the sci-fi/adventure TV series starring Danny Trejo, Franziska Schissler and Justin Price premieres today on The Fantasy Network. And you will not want to miss this action-packed entertainment.
In a world where Reapers take souls and demons bargain with humans for their place among the food chain, a new descendent named Jael has emerged to stop Death’s plan to reset the world. What ensues is a wildly exciting adventure around the globe and beyond and a relentless fight against the evil forces to preserve what’s left of our humanity. Fans Supernatural and The Walking Dead are sure to gravitate toward the show’s life-and-death stakes in an unabashedly SFF genre setting.
The cast is stellar. Trejo, known for films such as The Fixer, Machete, and From Dusk Til Dawn, is joined by fellow actors Amin Joseph (Snowfall, Stuber, Stock Option), and Dilan Gwyn (Beyond, Dracula Untold, Da Vinci’s Demons)
Season one features six 45-minute episodes, co-directed and co-written by Justin Price (Wrong Place, Wrong Time; The Mummy Rebirth, Almost Amazing, The Cloth), Khu (Dark Cupid, Snare) and Franziska Schissler (Prod: Wrong Place, Wrong Time, Actor: Debbie and the Devil, Hollow Bedrooms, Soul Hunters, The Dawnseeker), and produced by Price and Schissler. Made in association with Baby Monster Entertainment and Pikchure Zero, Paragon: The Shadow Wars first dropped on Amazon Prime on December 31, 2020 and is finding its second home on The Fantasy Network starting today.
“It’s been such an amazing journey bringing this mystical world to life,” explains series creator, Justin Price. “I feel very blessed to have been able to film and travel over the world and take in aspects of each country and culture and have them feed into the storytelling. I had dreamt of visiting some of these spots since I was a kid. We got to shoot in the US, Germany, Cambodia, Japan and Iceland, and it was one great adventure. So grateful to have a legend like Danny [Trejo] on board, who was an absolute pleasure to work with.”
