Zorro: A Disney+ series starring Wilmer Vaderrama will be a hit with Bryan Cogman, showrunner


Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman boards Disney+’s Zorro reboot starring Vilmer Valdarrama as the sword-wielding Lotario.

Who’s up for some swashbuckling and swooning? Disney Branded Television announced Games of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman is writing, showrunning, and executive producing the latest Zorro reboot for Disney+. Wilmer Valderrama stars in the reimagined adventure (That ’70s Show and NCIS : Naval Criminal Investigative Service), as Don Diego de la Vega, and his charming alter ego, Zorro, the masked horseman. Valderrama will also executive produce.

According to Deadline’s exclusive report, Cogman and Valderrama’s Zorro reboot finds “Diego De La Vega, who returns to his hometown of El Pueblo de Los Angeles following a family tragedy. There, he discovers a culture of corruption and injustice that will lead him to take on the mantle of the masked vigilante Zorro — America’s first true superhero.”

Disney’s Zorro reboot reimagines the Disney-ABC Zorro series of the 1950s. Zorro starred Guy Williams, Gene Sheldon, George J. Lewis, and Henry Calvin. Viewers swooned over Zorror for 78 episodes between 1957 and 1959, including my grandmother, who would often boast about Williams’s magnetism and machismo. I’m not going to lie; it sometimes got a bit uncomfortable.

“We’re reimagining this Disney classic as a compelling period piece, set in Pueblo de Los Angeles, but told in a very modern telenovela style — with richly drawn contemporary characters and relationships set against the action, drama, suspense, and humor of the original, iconic Zorro,” said Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, in December 2021. Wilmer shared our commitment to reflect the rich diversity of the human experience. We look forward to delivering an entertaining and culturally relevant story with definitional characters that will connect to our viewers for generations.”

Cogman worked on Games of Thrones series for ten and eight seasons. His hard work earned him many awards, including four Emmys and a Producer’s Guild of America Award. He also received seven Writer’s Guild Award nominations. Cogman’s eye for detail and ability to manage several moving parts for a fast-paced series makes him an excellent fit for Disney’s Zorro reboot.

As for Valderrama, I’m excited to see his version of the masked swordsman. This role allows Valderrama’s sexuality to shine through while still displaying his action skills. Are Disney fans ready? We’ll find out when the Zorro reboot swings onto Disney+.

Optimize Live

StormForge Optimize Live applies machine learning to existing Kubernetes metrics to make real-time, actionable recommendations to resource settings for any deployment running in Kubernetes.

StormForge's Solutions Architect Niels Roetert expresses enthusiasm regarding the benefits afforded by the solution:

"StormForge Optimize Live provides Pod resource right-sizing and can set optimal TargetUtilisation values for Kubernetes HPA to operate on. It does so continuously and without any human effort (configurable) at large scale. This results in resource and cost savings most of the time, when beneficial, resources are actually added to facilitate a better performing and more reliable application, which is a win-win for the application owner either way."
