Freely adapted from the cult movie by Sergio Corbucci, Django is the story of a man who, having set out in search of revenge, will end up fighting for something greater.
Texas, late 1800s. Django reaches a parched city at the bottom of a crater: it’s New Babylon. He searches for the men who murdered his family, but discovers that his daughter Sarah survived and is at the scene. She is now twenty years old and is preparing to marry John Ellis, who is the founder of New Babylon; plus, she doesn’t want Django around.
But Django is not a man to give up, and he will leave no stone unturned to have another chance with his daughter. In each case the three – Django, Sarah and John – are entangled in a tangle of sinister secrets destined to come to the surface.
Django was created and written by Leonardo Fasoli ( Gomorrah – The series , ZeroZeroZero ) and Maddalena Ravagli ( Gomorrah – The series ), also co-authors of the series story together with Francesco Cenni and Michele Pellegrini .
