HBO Max gives Garcia! the go-ahead

WarnerMedia-owned HBO Max has ordered an original Spanish-language drama based on a graphic novel, ahead of the streamer’s launch in Europe later this year.

Garcia! is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Santiago García and Luis Bustos, published by Astiberri Ediciones.

Sara Antuña and Carlos de Pando are co-creators and writers on the 6×60′ series, with Eugenio Mira (Grand Piano) directing all episodes. Produced by Zeta Studios for WarnerMedia in Spain, Garcia! will be available to stream on HBO Max in 2022.

Set in a present-day Spain which is divided and on the brink of political chaos, Garcia! tells the story of an inquisitive millennial investigative reporter Antonia (Veki Velilla) who stumbles on a decades-old conspiracy: the existence of a cryogenically frozen super-agent, García (Francisco Ortiz), created in a laboratory in the 1950s by General Franco’s fascist secret services.

Joining Francisco Ortiz and Veki Velilla in the cast are Emilio Gutiérrez Caba, Francisco Reyes (30 Coins), Nico Romero, Helio Pedregal, Mario Pardo, Miki Molina, Marina Gatell, Pepe Ocio and Silvia Abascal.

Miguel Salvat, Steve Matthews and Antony Root are executive producers. HBO Max originals commissioned in Europe are produced by the WarnerMedia EMEA original programming group, which is led by Root.
