MADRID, Jan. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Starting January 20, ‘The Refugees’ (8×50′), the first Spanish series co-produced with the BBC, will air for the first time on Atreseries Internacional. It is a dramatic thriller with a futuristic premise in which nature plays a starring role.
From the creators of ‘Velvet’ and ‘Under Suspicion’, the ATRESMEDIA series delves into the mystery that surrounds a family whose life will be forever changed by a disturbing visit. The reason: humanity is experiencing the greatest exodus in its history as 3 billion people from the future travel to the present to escape from an impending global disaster. Every refugee must follow two rules: They cannot talk about the future or interact with their families.
The Refugees will travel from the future to prime time on Atreseries with a very international cast, led by the British actor with Spanish roots, Natalia Tena (Game of Thrones, Black Mirror and Harry Potter), David Leon (RocknRolla, Vera) and Will Keen (Holby City, The Bill, The Impressionists, The Wire, Casualty 1907, Elisabeth), with Brendan Price (The Nameless), Gillian Apter (Celia), and Charlotte Vega (El secreto de Puente Viejo).
