“Lazarus proves that indie filmmakers can deliver powerful superhero stories, a space usually reserved for the majors,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “Viewers will be treated to a diverse and talented cast in an otherworldly Los Angeles setting, completely free and exclusive on Tubi.”
