Buendía Estudios started shooting the second season of "La Unidad" ("The Unit"), the Movistar+ original series created by Dani de la Torre and Alberto Marini. The production of the 50'- six-episode series will take place over 22 weeks in locations in Spain (Madrid, Toledo, Granada, Segovia and Guadalajara), and Jordan and it will premiere on Movistar+ in 2022.
Ignacio Corrales, CEO of Buendía Estudios comments on the start of the production company's activity for Movistar+: "'The Unit season 2' is the first of the productions we are carrying out for Movistar+ at Buendía Estudios. Movistar+ originals are a benchmark of quality in both the domestic and international market, so we are delighted to initiate this stage and we are confident that our expertise will allow us to continue developing and producing future projects for the platform".
Dani de la Torre directs the six episodes of this new season, written by Alberto Marini, Amèlia Mora, Alfred Pérez-Farga and Roger Danès, and with cinematography by Josu Inchaustegui. Nathalie Poza, Michel Noher, Marian Álvarez and Luis Zahera lead an international cast of 120 actors from more than six different nationalities.
The sequel to the story raised new challenges in terms of screenwriting: "We have opted to change the recipe quite a bit in this second season. We decided to put our protagonists in a totally new, difficult and uncomfortable situation. And we have delved deeper into the world of the antagonists, exploring the reasons for their hate. Reasons that are much more complex than simple religious fanaticism", said Alberto Marini.
Framed in an ambitious production proposal: "The mise en scène will be just as spectacular, supporting a script with unexpected twists and turns that will put all the characters on the ropes. Terror is inside everyone and nothing will ever be the same for 'the Unit'," added Dani de la Torre.
