Miami, FL., July 7, 2020 – HBO announces the premiere date of the drama series LA UNIDAD, that will be available on HBO and HBO GO from August 3rd, 22hs . The successful Spanish production was shot in Madrid, Melilla, Tanger, Galicia, Perpignan, Girona, Toulouse and Nigeria and it is based on the unpublished testimonies of senior professionals in the fight against terrorism.
Carla is the chief inspector of a police brigade that is always fighting Islamic terrorism. When one of their special operations results in the unexpected arrest of Al SalahGarheeb, the most wanted Jihadhist leader in the world, she will only be pleased for a few hours. As a consequence of his capture, Spain is to become the target of the threats made by Al Salah’s followers; those of the religious leader’s own son as well those of the thousands of supporters who are prepared to sacrifice their own lives to avenge his arrest and fall.
What was a big shot like him from ISIS doing in Spain? For Carla and her squad, it is crystal-clear that he isn’t there by chance. Something they haven’t figured out escapes them and the members of the squad must soon find out what it is. Their investigations will enable them to discover that there is a bloodbath in sight that only their uttermost efforts can prevent. Policemen and policewomen involved in fighting terrorism, overwhelmed by their tasks of preventing and stopping terrorist attacks, while trying to get on with their own private lives - which their profession has partly taken away from them.
LA UNIDAD, starring Nathalie Poza, Michel Noher, Marian Álvarez, Luis Zahera, Raúl Fernández de Pablo, Carlos Blanco and Fele Martínez, has six one-hour episodes, and it is directed by Dani de la Torre and written by Alberto Marini and Amèlia Mora.
