THE FIRST THRILLER FROM MANOLO CARO STARRED BY CARMEN MAURA
The three-episode miniseries from the creator of La casa de las flores , will launch globally on Netflix in 2020
Madrid, October 23rd, 2019 - Alguien tiene que morir, a three-episode miniseries filmed in Spain, and starring the winner of four Goya Awards, Carmen Maura (La Comunidad, Volver, Gente que viene y bah), Cecilia Suárez (La casa de las flores, Perfectos desconocidos), Ernesto Alterio (El otro lado de la cama, Narcos: Mexico, Las chicas del cable), the Mexican actor Alejandro Speitzer (La reina del Sur) and award-winning dancer Isaac Hernández (El Rey de todo el mundo). The cast is completed by Ester Expósito (ÉLITE, Tu hijo), Pilar Castro (Gordos, Es por tu bien), Mariola Fuentes (Arde Madrid, Instinto), Eduardo Casanova (La casa de las flores, Señor dame paciencia), Manuel Morón (Malaka), Juan Carlos Vellido (Las chicas del cable) and Carlos Cuevas (Merlí).
The story of Alguien tiene que morir begins when a young man, after being called by his parents, must return from Mexico to his home to meet his fiancée, but the people are surprised when he returns accompanied by Lazaro, a mysterious ballet dancer.
Everything happens in 1950's Spain, in a conservative and traditional society where appearances and family ties play a key role. Caro shows a new register with this new work, portraying a reality and a social problem from a very different point of view.
"Alguien tiene que morir is a wonderful challenge, my first project in Spain and the first outside comedy, which I was very nervous about. Having this cast is a dream came true and makes everything easier. I was very excited to start and now it's a reality," explains Manolo Caro.
Manolo Caro is the creator and director of this new series, co-written along with Fernando Pérez and Monika Revilla. Produced by Rafael Ley, María José Córdova, Carlos Taibo and Manolo Caro himself. Alguien tiene que morir is produced by Noc Noc Cinema.
