VALERIA | World premiere on May 8 at Netflix

Madrid, April 8, 2020
Valeria, the new original Spanish series by Netflix produced by Plano a Plano, will be released on screens all over the world next May 8th. This new fiction is based on the novels of Elísabet Benavent, published by Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial, which has sold over 450,000 copies in Spanish.
The author has participated as a creative consultant in the television adaptation of her popular literary saga. With a cast headed by Diana Gómez (45 Revolutions, I Know Who You Are), who puts herself in Valeria’s shoes, the series tells the story of a writer in crisis, both because of her novels and her marriage to Adrián, played by Ibrahim Al Shami (The Secret of Puente Viejo), and the emotional distance that separates them.
Valeria takes refuge in her three best friends: Lola (Silma López – Cosas de la vida), Carmen (Paula Malia – El Vecino, Benvinguts a la família) and Nerea (Teresa Riott – Barcelona nit d’estiu), who support her during her trip. Valeria and her friends are immersed in a whirlwind of emotions about love, friendship, jealousy, infidelity, doubts, disaffection, secrets, work, worries, joys and dreams about the future.
Maxi Iglesias (In spite of everything, Unmanageable) completes the cast of the series in the role of the mysterious Victor. Directed by Inma Torrente and Nely Reguera, the adaptation was written by María López Castaño, who is also the creator of the series, along with Aurora Gracià, Almudena Ocaña and Fernanda Eguiarte.
Produced by Plano a Plano for Netflix, this original series will have 8 episodes that will be available in the service worldwide from next May.
