MHz Choice released today the official US trailer for Hidden Theories, a political thriller from Portugal headed to the US and Canada next month. Check it out.
Well, my adrenaline just shot up from watching the trailer for Hidden Theories (Teorias da Conspiração), and one quick bit of it makes me want to know what happens to the lead character now.
The 18-episode crime and political thriller series follows Maria Amado (Carla Maciel, Parque Mayer), an investigative journalist for a newspaper, and José Madeira (Rúben Gomes, Valor da Vida), an inspector with the judicial police. Both are constantly battling their respective higher-ups, who put up one barrier after another in Maria and José’s news and criminal investigations.
Unbeknownst to Maria, Pedro Soares Teixeira (Gonçalo Waddington, Glória) has been keeping tabs on her. Pedro is an influential lawyer who’s in cahoots with people in the highest echelons of power, including those in the criminal underworld. He wields his power from behind the scenes, operating in the shadows to mislead whatever Maria unearths.
As she and José follow cases of corruption involving financial institutions and the highest levels of politics, the burgeoning scandal could ruin a lot of people, including the Prime Minister — and the investigation becomes increasingly dangerous as Maria gets closer to the truth.
Nominated for Best Series or TV Movie at the 2020 Portuguese Film Academy Sophia Awards, Hidden Theories premieres in the US and Canada on Tuesday, March 7th, exclusively on MHz Choice.
