Nuno Bernardo will share the stage with Dennis Lenart, who will host the videogame based on the worldwide smash series “The Walking Dead” and will explain the process that culminated with the COLLIDER production.

All the action takes place in 2017, in Rio de Janeiro, the year that our planet is invaded by the ‘Unknown’, creatures that decimate the world’s population.

COLLIDER is a science-fiction multiplatform project inspired by the universe and the graphic novel of the same name created by award-winning and Emmy-nominated writer-producer Nuno Bernardo (Sofia’s Diary, Beat Girl, Final Punishment), depicting the last 24 hours of a group of six characters trapped on the CERN campus in the year 2018. The action in COLLIDER goes down in Geneva, Switzerland, on what was once the CERN campus, where the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest particle accelerator, is located.
