Sky Rojo trailer released

Sky Rojo (translated as Red Sky) is an upcoming Spanish action crime drama television series, created by Álex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato. The series traces three prostitutes who flee from their pimp. Pina and Martínez  state the show will display “the impunity, ambiguity and brutal reality of prostitution, and the psychological portraits of those on both sides of the scale.”

The stars of Sky Rojo, Coral (Verónica Sánchez), Wendy (Lali Espósito) and Gina (Yany Prado) go on the run in search of freedom while being chased by Romeo (Asier Etxeandia), their pimp from Las Novias Club, and his henchmen, Moisés (Miguel Ángel Silvestre) and Christian (Enric Auquer). Together, the women embark on a frantic, chaotic journey during which they must face dangers of all kinds and live every second as if it were their last, while strengthening their friendship and discovering the most important thing: that together they are stronger and have more options to recover their lives.

We wanted Sky Rojo to have the same frenetic action as always, but to use that 25-minute runtime to underline the dynamic nature of the plot: the getaway, the race for survival. The third act of a movie or an episode is where all the energy converges to produce the most vibrant explosion of all the conflicts that are being narrated. What we set out to do was to make a constant third act, to funnel our entire story through that frenzied energy”, say Álex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato.

Filmed on location in Madrid and Tenerife, Sky Rojo has two confirmed eight-episode seasons. The series is produced by Vancouver Media for Netflix and its international cast is headed by Verónica Sánchez (The Pier13 Roses), Asier Etxeandia (Pain and GloryVelvet), Miguel Ángel Silvestre (VelvetSense8), the Argentinean singer and actress Lali Espósito (Casi ÁngelesEsperanza Mía), Cuban actress Yany Prado (La doble vida de Estela CarrilloLa reina soy yo) and Enric Auquer (La línea invisiblePerfect Life).

Álex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato are the creators and executive producers of Sky Rojo alongside Jesús Colmenar, with support from co-executive producers David Barrocal, Migue Amoedo and David Victori. The new original series is directed by Jesús Colmenar, Óscar Pedraza, David Victori, Albert Pintó, Javier Quintas and Eduardo Chapero-Jackson. The scriptwriting team is made up of Álex Pina, Esther Martínez Lobato, David Barrocal, David Oliva, Javier Gómez Santander, Juan Salvador López and Mercedes Rodrigo. Migue Amoedo has taken the lead as cinematographer alongside David Azcano and David Acereto, while Juan López Olivar and Cristina López Ferraz are heading up production management.
