New year, new opportunity to have a crush on series. There are many series that will try to conquer us in 2022, and here we are going to talk about the Spanish proposals of Amazon Prime Video to achieve it. The serial fiction homeland is still in top form, showing a wide variety of stories, genres and settings. For example, in this list we will find from a teenage science fiction adventure to a classic comedy with a Alicante flavor, from a mystery thriller to an action-adventure comedy in Marbella in the 80s. Amazon has also managed to gather some of the brightest stars in our industry (Carmen Machi, Carolina Yuste, Javier Gutiérrez, Aura Garrido, Ángela Molina, Álex García…) and even those of other industries (there is the French Jean Reno) to offer us some of the most stimulating possibilities for this year.
In this list we will find productions such as ‘A private matter’, the new series from Bambú Producciones from the creators of other television hits such as ‘Cable Girls’ and ‘Velvet’, offering a mix of action, comedy, historical portraiture and female empowerment thanks to a woman who refuses to submit to social norms from Galicia in the 1940s and sets out in search of a local serial killer. It also highlights the adaptation of the novel ‘Reina Roja’ by Juan Gómez-Jurado, with which Amazon Prime Video has reached an exclusive agreement to develop audiovisual content. Great news for fans of his novels, which will be transferred to the small screen.
“We believe that these new original fiction bets are really going to make a difference, they are projects that we hope will have an incredible reception from our audience”, continued Koro Castellano, Director of Prime Video in Spain, in the presentation of the 2022 content in Spain. “Prime Video is more than a service of transmission, we are an entertainment hub. In addition to working daily on our original and exclusive productions and on the vast content catalog, we have other complementary services such as channels, or the possibility of renting or buying movies and series, to offer our audience all kinds of content. ” the new original productions that we will mention below, Amazon Prime Video continues to show national titles such as’ Celebrity Bake Off Spain ‘,’ The heart of Sergio Ramos’, ‘The challenge: ETA’, ‘El Cid’, ‘LOL: Si te ríes you lose ‘and’ GEO: Beyond the limit ‘, among others. Ready for what’s next?
