Álex Pina, the creator of the popular Spanish-language Netflix series ‘Money Heist’, has renewed his partnership with Netflix.
According to reports, the deal will include Pina’s new series inspired by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It will be produced by Pina’s Vancouver Media banner.
The series yet to be titled will be set in a luxury underground bunker, where the country’s 1 percent retreat to escape catastrophe on the surface.
Pina said the show was inspired from a Spanish newspaper article published on October 9, 2021, about rich Spaniards purchasing bunkers in the wake of the pandemic.
Pina said, “Some of the new shelters that were being built were luxury homes in the subsoil. Up to 15 floors down, with exclusive services, such as cinema, pool, spa, gym and common gardens, with water and food to survive more than five years. An underground community for 75 people. And then we thought about what life would be like there. Social, family and romantic relationships, in an underground shelter to which they had hastily and exclusively fled.”
