Banijay Group-owned Spanish prodco DLO Producciones, Telefónica-owned SVOD service Movistar+ and NBCUniversal’s broadcaster Telemundo are collaborating on an adaptation of Julia Navarro’s novel Dime Quién Soy (Tell Me Who I Am).
The 9 x 50-minute original scripted series will be released this autumn and will air on Movistar+ in Spain and Telemundo in the US. It was created by José Manuel Lorenzo, directed by Eduard Cortés and written by Piti Españo.
Irene Escolar (The Laws Of Thermodynamics, The Skin Of The Wolf) is set to star as Amelia Garayoa, with the story following her various romantic relationships through some of the most important events of twentieth century Europe – from the Franco uprising and the liberation of Berlin to the communist boom in Stalin’s Moscow, the barbarity of the Warsaw ghettos, Rome during the last years of the Duce and the decline of Nazi Germany in occupied Athens.
The series, which marks Movistar+’s first international co-production, was filmed in nine countries across more than 300 locations. Beta Films owns the distribution rights.
Showrunner and CEO of DLO Producciones, José Manuel Lorenzo, said: “Dime Quién Soy is one of the most complex and ambitious projects that I have covered throughout my life. Over the last six years, it has gone beyond a professional obsession and become a personal one. I am excited about the idea of finally being able to share the result.”
Director Eduard Cortés added: “This series is shot with authenticity and all the intensity needed to enable the viewer to greatly enjoy the adaptation of the novel by Julia Navarro.”
