RZR raises thought-provoking questions about the power of artificial intelligence and whether mankind can harness it for good or if it will simply lead to our own destruction. The series, which spans eight episodes, complements Gala Film’s other upcoming project, Ghosts of Ruin, starring Rosario Dawson.

The teaser for RZR provides a glimpse into the gritty yet slick cinematography that defines the series. It introduces viewers to Grimm’s world, a labyrinthine lair filled with cyberpunk-style characters and advanced technology. The narrative revolves around Grimm’s neural implant device, touted as the “next evolution of mankind” that will “change everything”.

The series was produced entirely in Los Angeles, with Noelle Hubbell (Don’t Worry Darling) producing the project alongside Bianchi. The episodes are directed by two-time Emmy-winner Yuri Alves, Christopher Folkens, and Daniel J. Pico, who also co-wrote RZR.

Professional Nerd | Amateur Human | Creative/Content Director The best way to describe Kevin Fenix is the kid you never tell what the buttons do in video games so you have a chance to win. Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
