Django: Teaser Trailer Released Online

Sky have released the teaser trailer for the upcoming Sky Original western series Django.

.

Set in the late 1800s in Texas, Django is a jaded cowboy in search of the daughter he thought he’d lost. In following her trail, he comes upon New Babylon, a town at the bottom of a crater, where all outcasts are welcome and where everyone is equal and free. Here, Django discovers that his twenty-year-old daughter Sarah is alive and set to marry John Ellis, the founder of New Babylon. Sarah – who blames her father for the death of their family, massacred many years earlier while he was at war – wants Django to leave. But he refuses to give up and does everything in his power to get a second chance with her, becoming a valuable ally for Ellis, who must defend the town from Elizabeth Thurman’s attacks. Unbeknownst to them, Django, John, and Sarah are linked by a web of secrets and a dark past bound to resurface.

The series is a reimagining of the 1966 spaghetti western of the same name. The series is created and written by Leonardo Fasoli, alongside Maddalena Ravagli, who also co-wrote the series’ treatment with Francesco Cenni and Michele Pellegrini.
