Netflix Gives Series Order to Limited Series 'Zero Day' Starring Robert De Niro

Netflix has today given a series order to the original limited series Zero Day starring Academy Award winner Robert De Niro (The Godfather Part II, Raging Bull). The series will produce six episodes.

The series will ask the question on everyone's mind - how do we find truth in a world in crisis, one seemingly being torn apart by forces outside our control? And in an era rife with conspiracy theory and subterfuge, how much of those forces are products of our own doing, perhaps even of our own imagining?

Eric Newman, Noah Oppenheim and Michael S. Schmidt created the series. They will executive produce with De Niro, Jonathan Glickman and director Lesli Linka Glatter. Grand Electric Productions will produce in association with Netflix.

"I am a lifelong fan of Robert De Niro," said Newman. "To have him as a producing partner and star in this show is beyond my wildest dreams. And Lesli Linka Glatter has directed so many of my favorite episodes of television; she was our clear first choice to direct this show. I am grateful to Netflix for their continued faith and support and thrilled to be in business with the amazing creative team of Noah, Lesli, and Jonathan on this timely (and terrifying) series."

"Zero Day is a shrewd, heart-pounding conspiracy thriller that will keep audiences at the edge of their seat," added Peter Friedlander, Vice President of Scripted Series, Netflix, US and Canada. "What an honor to have this A-list caliber of talent assembled, led by the iconic Robert De Niro and brought to life by the unrivaled talents of Eric Newman, Noah Oppenheim, Lesli Linka Glatter and Michael S. Schmidt."
