Rosie Perez (“The Flight Attendant, Birds of Prey”), Marina de Tavira (“Roma”), José María Yazpik (“Narcos: Mexico”), Maribel Verdú (“Y tu mamá también,” “Pan’s Labyrinth”), Manolo Cardona (“Who Killed Sara?”), Soledad Villamil (“The Secret in their Eyes”) and Željko Ivanek (“Madam Secretary, Damages”) will star in the bilingual Apple TV+ series, “Now and Then,” reports Deadline.
The thriller hails from Bambú Producciones and creators Ramón Campos, Teresa Fernández-Valdés and Gema R. Neira, the team behind the Spanish series “Velvet,” “Cable Girls,” and “Gran Hotel”). Gideon Raff (“The Spy,” “Homeland”) will executive produce and direct the first two episodes.
Here’s how Deadline describes “Now and Then”: Set in Miami with an all-Hispanic cast, Now and Then explores the differences between youthful aspirations and the reality of adulthood, when the lives of a group of college best friends are forever changed after a celebratory weekend ends up with one of them dead. Now, 20 years later, the remaining five are reluctantly reunited by a threat that puts their seemingly perfect worlds at risk.
The series will be written by Neira and Campos with their team. Campos and Fernández-Valdés will serve as showrunners. Bambú Producciones will produce for Apple TV+.
