Next February is the release date chosen by Amazon Prime Video to premiere its four-episode miniseries ‘Operation Black Tide’, a co-production with the regional networks (with TVG at the helm) and the Portuguese public (TVP) based on the real case of the narco-submarine intercepted in 2019.
Alex Gonzalez (who we saw for the last time in ‘Toy Boy’) leads the cast of the series as Nando, a young Galician amateur boxing champion who, without financial resources, he is forced to find a way to earn a living. You’ll find him loading dope in this semi-submersible.
Along with González, the cast is made up of Nerea Barros, Nuno lopes, Miquel Insua, Luis Zahera, Xosé Barato, Carles Francino, Manuel Manquiña, Lúcia Moniz, Luís Esparteiro, David Trejos, Leandro Firmino and Bruno Gagliasso.
What really interests me about this series is seeing Natxo Lopez (‘Lost’) and Patxi Amezcua (‘Limitless’) in the script. Two men I usually trust a lot. On the other hand, the direction is in charge of Daniel Calparsoro, Oskar Santos and Joao Maia.
