Netflix has released details and a video about the characters in Sky Rojo, its latest Original series from Spain. Check ’em out!
From the creative minds of Álex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato, the creators of the international hit Money Heist, comes their highly-anticipated new series, Sky Rojo.
Filled with dark humor and plenty of adrenaline, Sky Rojo follows Coral, Wendy, and Gina as they go on the run from Moisés and Christian, the henchmen for Romeo, the women’s pimp and the owner of Club Las Novias. Together they embark on a frantic race for freedom, during which they face many dangers. Their only plan: to stay alive for five more minutes.
Said Sky Rojo creators Álex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato:
“Sky Rojo is the story of an escape by three women… but it’s also the story of the women themselves: three victims of human trafficking who break free from the web they’re trapped in. It’s about their dreams, the hell that they’ve been through, the friendship that they have forged, the solidarity that brings them together and the enormous energy that keeps them alive.”
Who are these women? And who are the men chasing them?
Coral (Verónica Sánchez, Morocco: Love in Times of War) is intelligent, elegant, and well educated. She enters Club Las Novias of her own free will, needing a place to lay low and knowing that she won’t be found there. It’s that same self-destructive streak that leads her to pop pills of every description when she needs to disconnect from the world and its reality. She’s the favorite of Romeo, who sees something special in her. Her analytical mind tries to rationalize every situation, weighing the pros and cons.

Wendy (Lali Espósito, The Accused) is impetuous, strong-willed, and defiant. When she arrives at Club Las Novias, she knows she’s entering the world of prostitution — not that she is voluntarily walking into her own kidnapping. In her attempt to escape poverty, she dreams of being able to settle down with her partner and having an economically secure life. She is a strong woman who only has time for action, a fearless spirit who tries to infect others with her courage. A force of nature, she trusts no one.

Gina (Yany Prado, La Reina Soy Yo) is naïve and sweet. She believes in the goodness of people above all else. In Cuba, she is recruited by Moisés and tricked into believing that she will be working as a waitress at Club Las Novias. She desperately tries to escape, but a mountain of debt as well as threats, not to mention Romeo keeping her passport from her, make getting her life back a nearly unattainable dream. She never loses hope that things can get better, and she is the pillar that unites the girls. (Photo of Yany Prado by Tamara Arranz / Netflix)
Romeo (Asier Etxeandia, Velvet) is a pimp and the owner of Club Las Novias, one of the best known brothels on Tenerife, arguably the best known of the Canary Islands. He’s also the head of a network that traffics women for sexual exploitation. Wry, smart, and entirely lacking a moral compass, he believes his business is justified and sees himself as a great artist. He relies on the unconditional aid of his henchmen, Moisés and Christian, whom he considers part of his family. (Photo of Asier Etxeandia by Tamara Arranz / Netflix)
Moisés (Miguel Ángel Silvestre, 30 Coins) is Romeo’s right-hand man. He is responsible for managing Club Las Novias while also serving as a middleman in the recruitment of girls from abroad for the club. He’s a criminal who isn’t moved by money, but rather by his absolute, unwavering loyalty to Romeo. Although second thoughts about his chosen life constantly torment him, he does his best to push them aside and just follow orders. (Photo of Miguel Ángel Silvestre by Tamara Arranz / Netflix)
Christian (Enric Auquer, Perfect Life) is impulsive and aggressive, a ticking time bomb. He is Moisés’ little brother, but he lacks any of his older sibling’s moral misgivings, as well as any independent thoughts or ambitions. In a matter of milliseconds, he can go from calm to a murderous rage. He always needs to measure up to his brother and to feel wanted and valued. He’s been addicted to everything at one point or another, and the only person he seems to care about is his mother. (Photo of Enric Auquer by Tamara Arranz / Netflix)
