-NEW ORIGINAL SERIES FROM AMAZON STUDIOS IN SPAIN-

‘RED QUEEN’

One of the “fattest” bets on Amazon and so they have referred to it in the event loud and clear. It is not for less, since Red Queen is the adaptation to the small screen of the successful homonymous trilogy, the best-selling book in Spain for the third consecutive year with more than two million copies. The author of the play, Juan Gómez-Jurado, as well as Amaya Muruzábal, ‘showrunner’ of the series, attended in person to present the project.

As in the books, the Amazon Prime Video series will introduce us to the story of Antonia Scott, a woman who possesses extraordinary intelligence. A gift that can sometimes be considered as such, since thanks to this it has been able to save a lot of lives, but that at times has also become a real curse and has made me lose everything. Now, it has been a long time since he left his tiny apartment in Lavapies.

There are still no actors officially linked to the project, but fans are already dying to know who will be in charge of giving life to Antonia Scott and the rest of the iconic characters.

‘THE FARAD’

“We are in the middle of the creative process, and so much so, that the title is provisional”, warned Mª José Rodríguez at the time of presenting The Farad, a fiction series but based on real events and set in the 80s that it already captures from its first description.

From the hand of this eighties action ‘thriller’ and which will consist of eight episodes we will meet Oskar, a boy who dreams of setting up a gym but who ends up entering the fascinating world of the Costa del Sol and surrounded by the jet set and its form to do things. It happens because, as Mariano Barroso, one of its creators, explains, “his process of finding an identity leads him to the Farad, a family that is dedicated to arms trafficking in the Marbella of the 80s. And there he finds his place”.

Barroso is co-creator of the series with Alejandro Hernández, with the former he will be in charge of the direction and Hernández of the script.

‘NO FOOTPRINTS’

The protagonists of Without Traces are Carolina Yuste and Camila Sodi, who are in charge of getting into the shoes of Desi (Yuste) and Cata (Sodi), two cleaners whose unexpected dismissal will be the starting point of a story that does not suit them to be easy to get out. Overwhelmed by money, the young women are called to clean in a mansion as if it were a miracle, but in the great house of the Roselló family, a powerful family from Alicante, they find the corpse of a woman.

After the initial shock, Cata and Desi realize that they have left everything clean, without fingerprints, so they are the perfect culprits for the crime. And so much so that the police will soon look for them, but they will not be the only ones: also a group of hitmen and a family of millionaires with hidden interests.

The series is developed by Carlos de Pando and Sara Antuña as ‘showrunners’.

‘A PRIVATE MATTER’

And finally, one that had already been announced a long time ago, which we are looking forward to and which will arrive before the summer arrives: A private matter, which Aura Garrido and producer Teresa Fernández Valdés have been in charge of presenting and of the one that the first images have been able to see.

Starring Garrido and Jean Reno under the baton of the prestigious Bambú Producciones, A private matter It is an adventure story set in Galicia at the end of the 1940s. There, a young upper-class girl with a dream of being a policeman, Marina Quiroga, sets out to hunt down a serial killer who has been tormenting the locals for months. . The person in charge of helping her is her faithful butler, Héctor (Reno), whose audacity is key to carrying out the investigation. Together they will fight against the obstacles and prejudices of the time, but also of the commissioner and the attempts of his family to marry the young woman.

These six titles join the dozens of global projects, both fiction and non-fiction, that Amazon Prime Video has in hand and that promise to continue growing.
