Movistar + opens month with an important arsenal of premieres and comebacks. October will be marked mainly on the payment platform for the premiere of ‘Milá vs Milá’, the new program presented by Mercedes Milá, which will be released on the platform next Wednesday, September 13.
In this space produced by Zanskar (‘Planeta Calleja’, ‘Volando voy’, ‘Scott & Milá’), the presenter returns to the format that made her one of the best journalists in this country: interviews. Every week she will receive emblematic characters from all areas and who already spoke with her in the 70s, 80s or 90s: José María García, Massiel, Manuela Carmena, Lola Herrera, Ramoncín and Joan Manuel Serrat.

‘Spice Girls: The Price of Success’ – Premiere – October 28

‘The frozen blood’ – Premiere – October 25
Andrew Haigh (‘Looking’) adapts the acclaimed novel by Ian McGuire set in a six-episode miniseries and stars Colin Farrell, Jack O’Connell, Stephen Graham (one of the protagonists of the acclaimed ‘Condena’, also on Movistar +) , Tom Courtenay, Sam Spruell, and Peter Mullan.
Patrick Sumner (Jack O’Connell) is a young surgeon still scarred by the horrors of his experience as a sergeant in the British Army in India. With the idea of hiding from the ghosts of the past, he opts to enlist as a medic aboard the Volunteer, a whaler about to set sail from Yorkshire on an expedition to the icy waters of the Arctic. During the hard voyage, Sumner meets the ship’s official harpooner, Henry Drax (Colin farrell), a cold and ruthless guy who seems to have grounded all sense of morals. In the midst of a hostile environment, surrounded by men in daily struggle for survival, the young and inexperienced Sumner is soon caught on a disastrous journey under the latent threat of a bloody psychopath, with no other outlet than the icy vastness of the ocean.
‘The bite’ – Premiere – October 23
Robert and Michelle King’s new series (‘The Good Fight’, ‘The Good Wife’, ‘Your Honor’, ‘Evil’) is a satirical drama shot during the pandemic, which mixes comedy with zombie terror. The King’s identity stamp is very clear: connected to the present, situations taken to the extreme of surrealism and a mixture of genres (comedy, horror, zombies, drama…). ‘The Bite’ stars Audra McDonald and Taylor Schilling.
‘Moonshine’ – Premiere – October 5
Irreverent drama about a self-destructive clan of stepbrothers fighting for control of the family business: an old summer resort on Nova Scotia’s south shore. “Moonshine” is a Canadian comedy filled with tensions, financial difficulties, crazy tourists, village intrigues, police investigations and a long-buried secret that will threaten to annihilate the Finley-Cullens once and for all. Low blows will become the daily bread of this dysfunctional family that will do whatever it takes so that no one sinks them.
