Madrid, April 27, 2023 – Álex de la Iglesia, one of the most influential directors of the Spanish audiovisual industry with films such as The Day of the Beast, The Oxford Crimes and Witching and Bitching, has created his first miniseries for Netflix with Jorge Guerricaechevarría. With a script by Pablo Tébar and Jorge Valdano, 1992 will be directed by Álex de la Iglesia himself.
The new fiction from the director of Common Wealth will revolve around mysterious murders in which the same pattern is always repeated: all the victims have been burned and a doll of Curro, the iconic mascot of Expo ’92 in Seville, appears next to the bodies.
In the words of Álex de la Iglesia: “1992 is a thriller that mixes suspense and political intrigue and takes us back to a key moment in the recent history of our country that many of us keep in our memories”.
Filming will begin soon in Seville.
