Zorro is set to leave his mark on streaming.

As Deadline is reporting, the House of Mouse has tapped Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman as writer, showrunner, and executive producer of their upcoming Zorro series for Disney Plus. Wilmer Valderrama, best known for playing Fez on That 70’s Show, will star as the titular swashbuckler in addition to serving as executive producer alongside Cogman.

The Disney Plus series follows privileged caballero 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.

The studio describes Zorro (wt) as a bold reimagining of Disney’s classic series for a modern audience; an epic adventure rooted in California’s rich and diverse history, bursting with humor, sinister intrigue, romantic entanglements, and swashbuckling thrills.
