The hit series is an original production by Movistar Plus+ in collaboration with Suma Content. It was written, directed, and produced by Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo.
La Mesías, an original series from Movistar+, has become the first Spanish series to participate in the renowned independent film event, The Sundance Film Festival. The festival is scheduled for January 18 to 28, 2024, and will feature the series in its Episodic section.
The series, which Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo created, has been highly acclaimed by critics and audiences since its debut. It has been regarded as the best series of the year in Spain by the specialized press, earning five nominations for the Forqué Awards and a historic record of eleven nominations for the Feroz Awards.
La Mesías continues its international tour with the premiere in Latin America via HBO Latam, as previously announced in October.
In the seven episodes of La Mesías, a drama of psychological suspense is unleashed, narrating the deep scars caused by decades of childhood trauma. It is a very ambitious journey through time that tells the story of a family with its beliefs, hopes, fears, and guilt. The series is about religion but is seen as a form of education. It deals with guilt, forgiveness, and how art can be the only escape valve in the face of terror.
Pop phenomena and virality in the digital era are intertwined with unforgettable characters seen from a new and dark prism in contrast to other moments of joy, which have characterized the previous projects of the creators Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo.
