Rodrigo Sorogoyen proves again that he has a special ability to create a human portrait framed by gripping action. Movistar+ invests in a series that aims to bring into the open an unknown facet of a collective that is usually a victim of many prejudices. The narration and rhythm of the series will engage a varied international audience.”
Six riot police carry out an eviction in the center of Madrid that becomes over-complicated. An Internal Affairs team is tasked with investigating the facts. Laia, the only woman on the team, becomes obsessed with the case and ends up discovering that behind this failed eviction there is a network of real estate corruption that spills over into the upper echelons. The riot squad members look for their own way out but that ends up separating them and eventually complicating their situation even further. Laia and the riot police become unlikely partners and together they will risk everything to uncover a criminal plot that has been going on in Madrid for years.
"Riot Police" stars Raúl Arévalo, Roberto Álamo, Hovik Keuchkerian, Álex García, Raúl Prieto and Patrick Criado, the six riot police officers of the POLICE TRACK 9, and Vicky Luengo, as the Internal Affairs inspector in charge of the investigation.
