Let's Get Straight to the Biscuits: Dario & Ashby Return With DANGER 5!
Dario Russo and David Ashby, the talented retro-visionaries who brought us Italian Spiderman, are back, this time with a Thunderbirds meets OSS 117 web series Danger 5.
To borrow a synopsis:
This 1960s-inspired version of World War II follows a team of suave international super-spies on their bizarre mission to kill Hitler. Danger 5 is the finest group of special operatives the allies have to offer: Jackson from the USA, Tucker from Australia, Ilsa from Russia, Claire from Britain and Pierre from Europe. Each episode of Danger 5 unravels another of Hitler's diabolic schemes and travels across a myriad of exotic locations spanning the globe.
If you think that sounds amazing, wait 'til you see the trailer.
The thing I love about Dario & Ashby's stuff is the way they manage -- with costumes, props, special effects and minatures -- to truly recreate the feel of those 1960s shows. Check out the Danger 5 golden gold below.
