Prime Video premieres the series 'Red Queen' on February 29

Prime Video premieres on Thursday, February 29 the 'Red Queen' seriesadaptation of the first installment of the successful trilogy written by Juan Gómez-Jurado who managed to hook thousands of readers with this novel and the next two, 'Loba Negra' (2019) and 'Rey Blanco' (2020).

'Red Queen' is undoubtedly one of the big bets of this year's digital platform. A Dopamine and Focus production with Amaya Muruzábal as creative head and executive producer. The script is written by Salvador Perpiñá and Muruzábal herself.

The series consists of a total of seven episodes directed by Koldo Serra as main director together with Julián de Tavira, who signs episodes 4 and 6.

A successful duo

Perhaps one of the most difficult tasks when approaching the development of history was to find the right actors to give life to the protagonists, the unpredictable and amazing Antonia Scott and the good-natured but thug policeman Jon Gutierrez.

Vicky Luengo and Hovik Keuchkerian.

Each reader of the novel has made a mental image of what each of them is like, beyond Gómez-Jurado's own descriptions. However, the choice of Vicky Luengo like Scott and Hovik Keuchkerian like Guitiérrez seems more than accurate. Both have proven their worth in front of the screens in productions such as 'Anti-disturbances'where they shared cast

Now, they have joined their talents to recreate the universe of the complicated Antonia Scott, a woman full of edges but with a very painful personal story, and police officer Jon Gutiérrez, an agent with a murky past who receives an assignment for which there is no possible prior preparation.

The history

With a IQ of 242, Antonia Scott is officially the smartest person on Earth. Her intelligence earned her becoming the 'Red Queen' of a secret police project and experimental, but what seemed like a gift became a curse and ended up losing everything.

When the son of a powerful tycoon appears murdered grotesquely in his mansion, and the daughter of the richest man in Spain is kidnapped, the Red Queen organization is launched. Mentor, Antonia's former boss, turns to Jon Gutiérrez, a temperamental Basque policeman about to be expelled from the force, to reactivate Antonia.

The twisted cat and mouse game What Jon and Antonia find themselves involved in during their investigation will also help them discover that they admire and complement each other each other almost as much as they irritate each other.

'Red Queen' is a disturbing and different thrillerin which the city of Madrid is one more protagonist, and which combines the urgency and action of research with the juicy and joker chemistry of its two protagonists.
