"Marco Polo" (Netflix TV show) is an epic original series that tells the epic adventures of the legendary pioneer and explorer from the 13th century — a kinetic tale of high politics, masterful manipulation and deadly warfare among clashing empires. The famed explorer's journey takes him to the center of a brutal war in 13th century China, a world replete with astonishing martial arts, sexual intrigue, political skullduggery and spectacular battles.

The series is a fantastical martial arts epic, chronicling the famous adventurer's early years in the court of Kublai Khan. Acting as the ruler's spy, ambassador and explorer, Marco treks across the Far East and returns with tales of his journeys. In a court filled with political betrayal and forbidden relationships, Marco must use his martial arts training to survive, but it is his ability to enchant Khan with imaginative tales of his kingdom that is often his best tool to stay alive.

The global cast includes newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy, Benedict Wong ("Prometheus"), Joan Chen ("Twin Peaks"), Chin Han ("Arrow," "The Dark Knight"), Zhu Zhu ("Cloud Atlas"), Olivia Cheng ("The Flash," "Broken Trail"), Claudia Kim ("Avengers: Age of Ultron"), Mahesh Jadu ("Neighbours"), Tom Wu ("Skyfall"), Remy Hii ("Treading Water"), Uli Latukefu ("Devil's Playground") and Rick Yune ("Olympus Has Fallen," "The Fast and the Furious").

"Marco Polo" is produced by The Weinstein Company (TWC) and comes from directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg ("Kon-Tiki," "Max Manus: Man of War"), executive producer and director Dan Minahan ("Game of Thrones," "True Blood") and executive producer and creator John Fusco ("Hidalgo," "Young Guns," "Thunderheart," "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron" - Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay).
