Danny Trejo Bends Reality In First Clip From “Paragon: The Shadow Wars”

Thursday, September 17, 2020 | Exclusive

Machete gets cerebral in Pikchure Zero Entertainment’s new sci-fi action series, PARAGON: THE SHADOW WARS.

Starring cult fave action superstar Danny Trejo as the mentor to Jael (Franziska Schissler), a hero chosen to battle against the forces of darkness, PARAGON: THE SHADOW WARS takes place in a world where “Reapers” take souls and demons bargain with humans for their place in the food chain. After centuries of civil unrest in the real world, a new war is waging amongst those who are seeking to create a new after-life and Jael finds herself in the middle of it. She must venture into the dark world of Soul Reaping and embrace her new role as the Paragon.

“We have always loved the Sci-fi fantasy genre, and we wanted to create a series that explored one of the most intriguing questions of humanity. Where do we go when we die? And what would happen if Heaven no longer existed?”, says creator Justin Price.  “PARAGON is an edgier and grittier cable style series in the vein of Firefly and Altered Carbon. I believe we have an electric hybrid that explores the human spectrum of dealing with loss and love in a stylistic way. Danny Trejo is outstanding as Kincaid, the half-dead leader of disbanded Reapers.”
