Produced by Boomerang TV for HBO Max, Cómo mandarlo todo a la mierda is a six-episode teen drama which will premiere this year on the platform.

HBO Max announced its new original Spanish series, Cómo mandarlo todo a la mierda (How to send everything to hell)

It is a six-episode youth drama, which will premiere this year on the platform.

The series is produced by Boomerang TV for HBO Max. Its executive producers are Pablo Sanhermelando and Valentina Francelet, from Boomerang TV, along with Miguel Salvat and Patricia Nieto, from HBO Max. Jaime Olías signs the script and deals with the direction.

It features a cast led by Naira Lleó, Malva Vela, Gabriel Guevara, Óscar Ortuño, Nadia Al Saidi and Sergi Méndez.

The drama follows a group of friends who hit the road on an aimless journey during which they may end up finding themselves.

“For us, the series delves into the feeling of the lack of freedom and its search within youth. A feeling that we all have (to a greater or lesser extent), and that we experience in each of the phases of the life of a different way. The viewer can expect a truthful, faithful and naturalistic portrait of the youth we represent”, said Sanhermelando and Olías.

“In this series, everything is well thought out so that it seems that it is not. It is above all a story about freedom, but not only the freedom that the characters yearn for and enjoy; it is also the freedom that Jaime Olías has used with good judgment to tell the story, choose the style, the music, the format itself and all the elements that give this series a touch of reality and truth that is unique in our fiction”, added Salvat.


Alba, a young woman who finds it difficult to adapt and who has only been in her new high school for a short time, learns some horrible news: the end-of-year trip is cancelled. Her plans to run away from her house collapse. By chance, she discovers that a group of classmates have a perfect plan: make their parents believe that the trip is still on, steal the van of one of their brother’s and go on the road for three weeks.

The plan is to have no plan, to go aimlessly, improvising. There are only a few rules: you can’t post anything on social media, you have to always be on the move, and most importantly, there’s no turning back.
