A new teaser trailer gives us a first look at the Netflix historial drama that will premiere all of its 10 first-season episodes on December 12.

Marco Polo is based on the explorer’s adventures in Kublai Khan’s court and it stars Lorenzo Richelmy in the title role. The project was originally intended for Starz, but after attempts to film the series in China failed, the network decided to pass. Filming with Netflix finally took place in Italy, Kazakhstand and Malaysia.

We are definitely intrigued by the look of this new Netflix drama. The project is directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg. Besides Richelmy it also stars Benedict Wong, Joan Chen, Chin Han, Zhu Zhu, Olivia Cheng, Claudia Kim, Mahesh Jadu, Tom Wu, Remy Hii, Uli Latukefu and Rick Yune.

Marco Polo will debut its 10-episode season all at once on December 12 at 3:00 a.m. PT.
