Jamila follows three characters whose paths cross in Seville: Tamara, a young woman who has been ousted from her deceased father’s illegal business by her uncles; rising football player Calderón, devastated by a life-changing injury; and Manuel, a garbage truck driver dreaming of a different life.

After a sexual blackmail case goes wrong, they decide to grow weed as a way out of their current struggles, but inexperience, mistrust and cartels won’t make it that easy.

Jamila will be co-developed by VIS and La Claqueta, with the participation of Alberto Marini and Olmo Figueredo González-Quevedo, who will act as showrunners. José Rodríguez Suárez (La Peste) is the co-creator and lead writer of the series.

Laura Abril, senior VP of VIS for EMEA and Asia, said: “We are excited to partner with La Claqueta, a production company internationally recognised for their work in the film and TV industry, on such an exciting project.

“By inking strategic partnerships with industry leaders, we demonstrate our commitment to delivering the best content for our viewers on all platforms. Jamila is another testament of our strategy to create and produce content that can both resonate locally and have a global reach.”
