Produced by Isla Audiovisual, Can Can Producciones and Funwood Media The Room is currently being shot and will be broadcast on Forta stations and HBO Spain in 2019.

The series follows Yago Costa who was considered the best police investigator until he inexplicably killed his best friend and superior, in the same interrogation room where he had solved many previous cases. Now, Yago is in jail and needs to reveal why he did it.

“We are very pleased to welcome into our slate our very first Spanish series and to partner with Isla Audiovisual, Can Can Producciones and Funwood Media: The Room is an intense character-driven series that we look forward to presenting to the international market in 2019” said Malika Abdellaoui, managing director Newen Distribution.

Juanjo Marrero, executive producer, said: “Jumping into International Distribution is not easy, but we are convinced of its necessity as a natural answer to the current market. Having the best travel companion is essential and partnering with Newen International has been the best option”
