Showrunner Robert Patino Introduces Us to the World of DMZ

A civil war has erupted in America and Manhattan has fallen. What was once a thriving metropolis has become a demilitarized zone, where different factions fight for power, and everyone else struggles to survive. Welcome to the world of DMZ . The critically acclaimed Vertigo comic debuts today on HBO Max as an exciting limited series executive produced by Ava DuVernay and starring Rosario Dawson and Benjamin Bratt. All four episodes have been released, and if you enjoy them, there’s an even larger story to discover in the comic (which, not so coincidentally, is now available in full on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE). But before you dive in, we caught up with showrunner Robert Patino, who told us how he built the series from the acclaimed source material, what it was like to build a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, and the challenges of filming during the pandemic.
