Season One of Paragon: The Shadow Wars, (six 45-min episodes) is co-directed and co-written by Justin Price (Wrong Place, Wrong Time; The Mummy Rebirth, Almost Amazing, The Cloth), Khu (Dark Cupid, Snare) and Franziska Schissler (Prod: Wrong Place, Wrong Time, Actor: Debbie and the Devil, Hollow Bedrooms, Soul Hunters, The Dawnseeker) and produced by Price and Schissler.

In a world where Reapers take souls and demons bargain with humans for their place among the food chain, a new descendent named Jael has emerged to stop Death’s plan to reset the world. What ensues is a wildly exciting adventure around the globe and beyond and a relentless fight against the evil forces to preserve what’s left of our humanity.
“It’s been such an amazing journey bringing this mystical world to life. I feel very blessed to have been able to film and travel over the world and take in aspects of each country and culture and have them feed into the storytelling. I had dreamt of visiting some of these spots since I was a kid. We got to shoot in the US, Germany, Cambodia, Japan and Iceland, and it was one great adventure. So grateful to have a legend like Danny on board who was an absolute pleasure to work with,” said series creator, Justin Price.
