Netflix has announced both the main cast of Valeria and the start of production on this new Spanish Original series.
Production started two weeks ago in Madrid on Valeria, the new contemporary Spanish dramedy series adapted from the popular “Valeria” novels by Elísabet Benavent, which have sold 450.000 copies in Spanish (but have not been translated into English, at least not yet).
In the novels, Benavent introduces the character of Valeria thusly:
“I stopped the noisy walk of my fingers on the keyboard and reread the text as I scratched my head with a pencil.”
Valeria is a writer in search of inspiration.
She’s also a writer in crisis, as much for her novels as for her husband and the emotional distance between them. For support along her journey, Valeria turns to her three best friends — Carmen, Lola, and Nerea — all while the four of them are immersed in a whirlwind of emotions about love, friendship, jealousy, infidelity, doubts, lack of love, secrets, work, worries, joys, and dreams about the future.
Starring as Valeria is Diana Gómez (Money Heist, I Know Who You Are). Playing Valeria’s best friends are Silma López (Cosas de la vida) as Lola, Paula Malia (If I Hadn’t Met You) as Carmen, and Teresa Riott (Barcelona Summer Night) as Nerea. Ibrahim Al Shami (El secreto de puente viejo) costars as Adrián, Valeria’s husband, and Benjamín Alfonso (Educando a Nina) plays the mysterious Victor.
Valeria is created by María López Castaño (Grand Hotel, Apaches) and co-written by María López Castaño, Aurora Gracià (The Protected), Almudena Ocaña (Cable Girls), and Fernanda Eguiarte (Ingobernable). The directors are Inma Torrente (Los misterios de Laura) and Nely Reguera (Welcome to the Family). Elísabet Benavent serves as Creative Consultant on the series.
Produced by Plano a Plano (El Príncipe), Valeria will premiere worldwide in 2020 exclusively on Netflix.
Stay tuned for updates.
