Netflix greenlights Spanish heroin trafficking drama

Streaming behemoth Netflix has enjoyed huge success with its drug cartel drama, Narcos, and now we hear the service has jumped on for another drug-based drama… this time from Spain. Deadline reports that it has greenlit the eight-part series, Hache. The drama, which was created by Cuéntame and El Príncipe writer Verónica Fernández and is based on a…

Review: I Know Who You Are (S2 E3&4/6), Saturday 11th November, BBC Four

These two episodes took us over the half-way point in this insane Spanish series, and there was very definitely a sense that the Elías-Castro family was beginning to implode. In fact, these two episodes could and should have been subtitled ‘Reap What You Sow’, because things were starting to move and get sorted out, but…

BBC Four confirms series two of I Know Who You Are transmission date

NB: SPOILERS INSIDE There was mild-to-medium consternation when BBC Four decided to not show the second part – series? – of the sensational Spanish crime drama, I Know Who You Are.

Yes, it’s daft; yes, it’s convoluted; and…

EXCLUSIVE Interview: Aida Folch, I Know Who You Are

BBC4’s Spanish thriller I Know Who You Are is a sensational helter-skelter thrill ride of a series and, as we’re approaching episodes five and six, we’re still none the wiser as to whether lawyer Juan Elías is suffering from amnesia or not or whether he has murdered his niece, Ana Saura. The series – Sé…

Review: I Know Who You Are (S1 E1&2/10), Saturday 15th July, BBC4

BBC Four has had a bit of mixed bag of a year when it has come to foreign crime drama – Cardinal was workmanlike but watchable, and has been the channel’s only real crime drama of note in 2017. Walter Presents and Netflix have been much more prolific so far. But we’re entering what broadcasters…
