Spanish broadcaster Telemadrid is to air a new unscripted series, exploring the lives of the residents of the city of Madrid, later this year.
Produced by Banijay Iberia label Shine Iberia, Vidas De Cine (aka Open Air Cinema) will follow actor and presenter Florentino Fernández as he travels around the Spanish capital speaking to communities and discovering anonymous stories which capture the essence of those living in Madrid.
Residents of the city are then invited to an outdoor screening to watch the compilation. From anecdotes of resilience to recognising a key individual, the audience will get an authentic insight into the lives of their relatives, friends, and neighbours.
Banijay Rights holds distribution rights for the series.
Macarena Rey, CEO of Shine Iberia, commented: “The extracts showcased in Vidas De Cine are moving and emotional. By seeing the city through the eyes of others, the audience are reminded of the community of which they are part.
“Our lives can be so consuming, sometimes you forget to take time to appreciate and listen to those around you, and this show is all about celebrating that.”
James Townley, global head of content development at Banijay, added: “This is a truly heart-warming show, that not only brings communities back together but also celebrates the incredible people within them.
“These nostalgic and highly emotional moments are something we can all relate to and, following the last 18 months, feel even more poignant.”
