[VIDEO] The mini-series “The Time In Between” makes history in Spain – Deadline

Has Spain just created its own Downton abbey? The time in between, a co-production of Antena 3 and Boomerang TV, made its prime-time debut in Spain on Monday night, winning its niche and becoming the best local drama premiere in the past eight years with a peak of 5.7 million viewers and an overall share of 25.5%. (Check out the captioned trailer below.) The miniseries was facing off The voice and popular series Isabelle, its success is therefore no easy task, and the critical reaction has been resounding. The 11-part mini is based on El Tiempo Entre Costuras, the bestseller by María Dueñas which has sold over 3 million copies. It stars Adriana Ugarte, Raúl Arévalo (I’m so excited) and Hannah New from Starz to come Black sails. Set during the Spanish Civil War and in the run-up to World War II, it’s the story of a woman raised by a poor single mother who learned to be a seamstress. When she falls in love with a handsome young man, she moves with him to Morocco and spends months living the high life. But when the money runs out and she gets pregnant, he leaves. She eventually builds a new life and becomes the most sought-after couture designer for the social wives of German Nazi officers. She also begins working for the British government, passing information on to the Secret Service. The series has high production values ​​and looks crisp. Ruth Martinez of Boomerang tells me that it was “shot like a feature film” and that it is one of the most ambitious television productions of recent years. It sparked interest and offers from several European territories, although buyers didn’t see the full first episode until just before it aired on Monday (it skipped the recent Mipcom TV market in Cannes). As for a sale in the United States, given the numbers it has garnered in Spain, the popularity of the book and the current taste for period dramas, an adaptation certainly seems possible. Here is the trailer, see for yourself:
