BRIGANDS TV SERIES
THE QUEST FOR GOLD
To be perfectly hones with you I was quite under the impression that this one was dead as dodo as we first announced it half a decade ago with the batch of Italian originals ordered by Netflix which also included Lidia Poet (which streamed last year and has a second season ordered), but it seems BRIGANDS: THE QUEST FOR GOLD will finally arrive to the streamer in the following months. Looking at the cast in the first images that you can see today it is rather obvious why they kept it hidden and probably won't promote it at all. In this series, set in mid-19th-century southern Italy, a woman forced to go on the run transforms from dutiful wife to the ruthless leader of a group
of bandits. Gorgeous Ernesto D'Argenio leads the cast with Marlon Joubert, Alessio Pratico, Lorenzo de Moor and Giuseppe lo Piccolo.

THIS SIX EPISODE SERIES
is set in Southern Italy, two years after the Unification of Italy: a woman, forced to escape from her village, joins a particular group of brigands and she will become one of the most ruthless and strategic leaders. But she is not the only one to choose this life and soon comes into contact with other women like her. In order to recover the gold of the South and restore hope to the peasants, the various bands of brigands will have no choice but to unite against the common enemy. Brigands against State, but also brigands against brigands, in a struggle where one must be willing to sacrifice even one's humanity to overcome the oppressors. Dense forests, immense glades and desolate landscapes create a precise image system in which the characters come into intimate contact with the wilderness, becoming an integral part of it. Confined to the edges of civilization and forced to live like beasts to survive in hostile places, this environment changes them forever and brings out their darker, more primitive side. A little bit Robin Hood, a little bit Pirates, the bandits protagonists acquire wealth and power to replace the State. A violent criminality is born where the only option to survive is to become an unscrupulous outlaw.
