The Spanish series will be titled El Accidente and goes on air next year, with Globomedia attached to produce, as previously reported.

This is the third European remake of the crime drama. In the Netherlands, Vlucht HS13 (Flight HS13) debuts on September 23 on KRO-NCRV, with Column Film attached as producers.
