The series on the operation against the narco-submarine in Galicia will premiere in February

The Serie 'Operation Oil Slick', directed by Daniel Calparsoro and starring actor Álex González, it already has a release date, will arrive on the platform Amazon Prime Video next February.

The platform has published this Tuesday the first images of fiction inspired by true events about the eponymous police operation that intercepted the first submarine in Europe dedicated to drug trafficking with more than 3,000 kilos of cocaine.

At the head of the controls is Nando (Álex González), a young Galician amateur boxing champion of Spain and an expert sailor without financial resources, who is forced to seek other means to earn a living.

The series, which will have 4 episodes of 50 minutes duration, is a co-production between Spain and Portugal and therefore has a cast made up of artists from both countries such as Nerea Barros ('The minimal island'), Nuno Lopes ('White Lines'), Miquel Insua ('La Unidad'), Luis Zahera ('The Kingdom'), Xosé Barato ('Alba') or Carles Francino ('The cable girls').

It is completed by Manuel Manquiña ('Before the burning'), Lúcia Moniz ('Love Actually'), Luís Esparteiro ('Super Pai'), David Trejos ('Lost'), Leandro Firmino ('City of God') and Bruno Galiasso ('Marighella').

The new Amazon Exclusive series is produced by Ficción Producciones ('3 roads', 'Living without permission'), together with the regional televisions CCMA, CRTVG, SAMC, EITB MEDIA, TVPC, RTPA, IB3 and TVG.
