“Marco, the blood of an adventurer courses through your veins,” he is told in one scene. Speaking of blood, plenty of it appears to be getting spilled in the series. Sex and drugs also abound.
Created by John Fusco, Marco Polo stars Lorenzo Richelmy, Benedict Wong (Prometheus), Joan Chen (Twin Peaks) and Chin Han (Arrow).
The show is produced by Netflix and The Weinstein Company. It premieres Dec. 12 on Netflix.
