HEIRS TO THE LAND SERIES
ARRIVING APRIL TO NETFLIX
After last year's The Cook of Castamar, which was semiboring but watchable, we are getting another period set series coming to Netflix from Spain and
this time it will be HEIRS TO THE LAND (Los Herederos De La Tierra) a follow up to the glorious historical drama Cathe- dral of the Sea which we watched a few years ago. It will also be based on the novels by Ilde- fonso Falcones just like Cathedral del Mar was. It is interesting that Netflix, who will stream the new eight part series on April 15th, will have exclusive first window rights to the new series for 12 months, after which the drama will also be available on Antena 3 and Spain's TV3 for three months! Directed by Jordi Frades it will have the main cast headlined by Yon González, Elena Rivera, Rodolfo Sancho, Michelle Jenner, María Rodríguez, Pere Arquillué, Manel Sans, Mercedes León and Natalia Sánchez.If it proves successful with the audiences around the world, the series
could get a second season order, but given that Netflix has given almost
no marketing to this new series, we probably shouldn't be overly
optimistic, but you never know, the books have millions of fans around
the world and have been translated in many different languages.

THE SERIES THAT FOLLOWS
a resourceful young Hugo Llor who works to make a name for himself in 14th-century Barcelona while keeping a vow he made to the Estanyol family, sees the 12-year-old boy as the main protagonist who struggles to fulfil his dream of becoming a shipbuilding craftsman. The new Spanish Netflix series takes us to Barcelona at the end of the 14th century and tells the story of the young Hugo Llor (David Solans and Yon González), the son of a deceased sailor, who works in the shipyards thanks to the generosity of one of the most respected men of the city: Arnau Estanyol (Aitor Luna). His dream of becoming a shipbuilder will be truncated when the Puig family, a staunch enemy of his mentor, takes advantage of his position before the new king to carry out a revenge that they had been cherishing for years.
