AMC picks up Iberian drama Sequía for its Europa Europa channel in Lat Am

Elena Rivera stars in Sequía, the first coproduction between RTVE and RTP

Spanish pubcaster RTVE has signed a deal with AMC Networks Latin America for the crime thriller Sequía, which will be broadcast throughout Latin America on AMC’s Europa Europa channel.

Sequía – which means ‘drought’ in English – is the first coproduction between RTVE and the Portuguese public broadcaster RTP, with production going via Madrid-based Atlantia Media and Coral Europa of Lisbon, Portugal.

The series stars Elena Rivera, Rodolfo Sancho, Marco D’Almeida, Miryam Gallego and Miguel Ángel Muñoz. It was watched by 1.3 million people on its premier on RTVE’s flagship channel TVE in Spain, along with three million views through streamer RTVE Play. The series première on RTP in Portugal drew 400,000 viewers.

The storyline centres on two mummified corpses with bullet wounds that are discovered after a reservoir straddling the border between Spain and Portugal dries up during a drought. Cops from both sides of the border then try to solve the case.

The show is “a new take on the crime genre,” said Joaquín Llamas, director of the series. “The aim is to reach the viewer directly, not so much through the plot but through the emotional journey of its protagonists.”
