ATRESplayer PREMIUM will present ‘Cardo’, its new original series, at the San Sebastian Festival. Atresmedia’s payment platform will premiere the first three episodes of the fiction created by Ana Rujas and Claudia Costafreda within the framework of the Festival. ‘Cardo‘ will be seen soon, and exclusively, in ATRESplayer PREMIUM.

The presentation will be attended by its creators, the main cast and the executive producers of the series.

‘Cardo’ recounts over six episodes the excesses of an entire generation that feels like the hinge of the world: daughters of the XXI century, babies of the television of seven channels, of the technological boom and social networks. Through Mary, the lives of many will be told.

Based on an original idea by Ana Rujas, ‘Cardo’ will star her and directed by Claudia Costafreda, both co-creators and writers of the series. The cast of the series that has started shooting is completed by Clara Sans, Ana Telenti, Juani Ruiz, Alberto San Juan, Diego Ibáñez and Yolanda Ramos.

‘Cardo’ is a production of Atresmedia Televisión in collaboration with Buendía Estudios and Suma Latina. Montse García, Sonia Martínez, Amparo Miralles, Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi are the executive producers of the project.

The series tell the story of Maria, a nearly 30 year-old girl from Madrid without much to offer the world, hooked on drugs and to develop through toxic and sexual relationships, she hates her body while she uses it to achieve ephemeral challenges. Facing with such a sense of emptiness, she tries to take the direction of her life and sets out to help Puri, a 65-year-old woman whose florist is about to be closed. After a humiliating encounter with her last partner, an accident will change her life and force her to face some uncomfortable truths.

The fiction reflects on the expectations that are imposed on us according to who we are physically according to what we are socially and the emptiness of a whole generation of young people who today are around 30 years old. How we fill that void through consumerism and ephemeral pleasures without delving into what really happens to us or who we really are.
