Marco Polo executive producer Daniel Minahan explains that Marco Polo’s adventures are so legendary that there is a wealth of good material to explore in the new Netflix series coming on December 12, 2014. “It’s also so fascinating because it is partially legend and partially historical,” says Minahan in the new behind the scenes video from the upcoming action adventure series. And series creator/executive producer John Fusco says that most viewers will be surprised to learn the incredible true story of Marco Polo, calling it more compelling even than the mythology.
The cast is led by Lorenzo Richelmy as Marco Polo and features Benedict Wong, Joan Chen, Chin Han, Zhu Zhu, Olivia Cheng, Claudia Kim, Mahesh Jadu, Tom Wu, Remy Hii, Uli Latukefu, and Rick Yune.
In a world replete with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue and rivalry, Marco Polo is based on the famed explorer’s adventures in Kublai Khan’s court in 13th century China.
