Paramount+ U.S, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, announced "Parot", a social political thriller based on the controversial annulment of the Parot doctrine by the Strasbourg Court in 2013, will be available to stream exclusively on the service in the U.S. beginning Wednesday, October 20. This Spanish-produced drama follows an investigative police officer and touches on themes of self-righteousness, post-abuse trauma, and political issues of the time.
Last September, the successful series produced by Viacom International Studios (VIS), a division of ViacomCBS, in association with RTVE and in collaboration with Onza, took home top honors in the Best Screenplay category at the Berlin TV Series Festival. This 10-episode social political thriller is based on the controversial annulment of the Parot doctrine by the Strasbourg Court in 2013, limiting or reduced prisoners' sentences for work and studies and releasing almost a hundred terrorist rapists, and multiple killers into society. Many of those released were later found murdered in the same way as their own victims. The investigation of these murders is led by Isabel Mora, an idealistic, professional, and rigorous inspector with a traumatic past, and her colleague Jorge Nieto, a cynical and disillusioned policeman who constantly complains about the system.
"Parot" stars Adriana Ugarte (known for the acclaimed Spanish series “El Tiempo entre Costuras''), Ivan Massagué (known for the Spanish series “El Barco”), Michel Brown, Javier Albalá, Blanca Portillo, Patricia Vico, and Nicole Wallace. It was directed by Rafael Montesinos and Gustavo Ron and created by Pilar Nadal, Alonso Laporta Luis Murillo A. and Luis Murillo M., who were scriptwriters on the series alongside Olga Salvador and Mauricio Romero.
