The female-led series will be "a modern-day retelling of the Zorro mythology."
Zorro is being rebooted again, this time as a new TV series that will cast a female lead as the legendary masked vigilante.
CBS TV Studios is working on the new Zorro show with Ben Silverman and Howard Owens' production company, Propagate, and it will be written by Burn Notice vet Alfredo Barrios Jr.
Deadline broke the news in a new report on Propagate's upcoming projects, and describes the new Zorro as "a modern-day retelling of the Zorro mythology that follows Z, a female descendant of warrior bloodline, who will go to great lengths to protect the defenseless in her community."
