BOUNDLESS EPIC TV SERIES
Sometime last Autumn your trusted Hollywood Spy was one of the first ones in the world to exclusively show you the first photos from BOUNDLESS six part mini series that will air on Amazon Prime and Spanish RTVE later this year which marks 500th anniversary of the expedition, and now I have new photos from this historical adventure for you showing Latino heartthrobs Rodrigo Santoro and Alvaro Morte as explorers Juan Sebastián Elcano and Ferdinand Magellan, who set sail from Spain over 500 years ago in the first ever circumnavigation of the world! The project will also be made into a feature film from the shot material which will also air on Amazon and Spanish national broadcaster. Simon West directed the series that started shooting last April when we announced it and finished earlier in August. The production itself lasted two years longer than the actual voyage of the famous explorers. Sin Limites is the Spanish title of the series.
THE STORY OF THE NEW SERIES
will describe how they set sail with 239 sailors from Spanish harbour of Cádiz on August 20, 1519, bringing the tale of the survival and journey of the only 18 sailors who returned after three years captained by the Spanish sailor Juan Sebastián Elcano and Portuguese explorer Fernando de Magallanes. They returned seriously unwell due to starvation, in the one ship that withstood the journey. They had traveled 14,460 leagues, west-bound, completing the circumnavigation of the world; an almost impossible mission that sought to find a new route to the "islands of spices" and that ended up changing the history of mankind by proving that the Earth is round. This feat forever transformed trade, economy, astronomy and knowledge of the planet, and is considered one of the greatest achievements in human history.
WHO WAS ON THE VOYAGE?
The cast of the show also includes Sergio Peris-Mencheta as Captain Cartagena, Adrián Lastra as Captain Mendoza, Carlos Cuevas as Martino), Pepón Nieto as Father Bartolomé, Raúl Tejón as Gómez de Espinosa, Gonçalo Diniz as Duarte Barrosa, Manuel Morón as Cardenal Fonseca and Bárbara Goenaga as Beatriz. The six episode show itself was shot in Spain with Dominican Republic covering the more exotic locations. It will be available on Prime Video in Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, Latin America, Netherlands, UK, Germany, India, US and Andorra.
Should be good, hope we get a trailer soon. I did not like Hernan series a few years ago.Delete
Can you imagine being only 1 of 18 survivors out of over 200? I can't imagine watching all of my shipmates perish on that voyage.ReplyDelete
Well, if others were nasty and pain in the ass.... LOL Joking aside, I would not cross a creek in a modern ship, let alone ocean in an old galley!Delete
I agree. Open water freaks me the hell out. Probably why I've never been on a cruise. I'm ok with flying, but when we get over oceans, I have little panic attacks looking down at all of that water.Delete
I am scared even of little lakes.Delete
Yikes, that sounds like a journey from hell. I'm with Theresa... the trauma of surviving sounds awful.ReplyDelete
Not a heavenly cruise indeed.Delete
