But the company’s catalogue is not only made of this content: it also adds disruptive programming according to the times. One of them is undoubtedly Veneno, the biopic that after its premiere on ATRESplayer Premium and Antena 3, was sold to HBO Max in the USA and which has been widely recognized throughout the world.
In the same line, the new series Cardo (6x’50) stands out, produced in collaboration with Buendía Estudios and Suma Latina. It is a generational portrait: it recounts the excesses of a generation that feels itself to be the hinge of the world, straddling an uncertain future, a placid past and a troubled present. A consumerist generation, insatiable, and hopelessly lost, of the existential emptiness that it tries to solve with excesses and frenetic experiences because it feels that it does not have much to offer the world: daughters of the 21st century, babies of seven-channel television, of the technological boom and the social networks.
A Normal Family: The Return (4x’60) was produced in collaboration with Buendía Estudios and Boomerang TV. Ten years have passed since the Castillo Rey family had a happy ending. But life goes on and the passage of time, destiny and an unknown fact that we will discover in this new stage, was separating them. Now, a serious threat looms over them, confronting them with a new mission.
