Currently in pre-production in Spain, the six-episode drama Land of Women is the studio’s second project for the OTT platform following Now and Then.
Apple TV+ announced it has ordered a new Spanish series: Land of Women (Tierra de mujeres), a six-episode drama inspired by the best-selling novel of the same name.
Currently in production in Spain in English and Spanish, the series is produced by Bambú Producciones, marking the studio’s second project for the OTT platform following Now and Then.
The series is produced and stars Eva Longoria, along with Carmen Maura (Volver), who will play a mother and daughter duo.
Created and written by Ramón Campos (Gran Hotel, Velvet) and Gema R. Neira (Now and Then, Velvet), Land of Women tells the story of Gala (Longoria), a New York empty nester forced to flee her home after her husband implicates the family in financial improprieties. Joining her on the journey are her aging mother Julia (Maura) and her college-age daughter.
The three women escape the criminals her now-vanished husband is indebted to by moving to the same charming wine town in Northern Spain that Gala’s mother fled 50 years ago, vowing never to return. Starting over with new identities proves complicated while living in a small town where secrets tend to unravel quite easily.
Land of Women will be directed by Carlos Sedes (Now and Then, Fariña). Showrunner Campos will executive produce alongside Teresa Fernández-Valdés (Now and Then, Velvet), Ben Spector (Grand Hotel, La Guerra Civil), and Longoria via her production company UnbeliEVAble Entertainment.
