'Sky Rojo' follows three prostitutes trying to run away from their pimp.
If you loved 'Money Heist', then chances are you will go crazy over 'Sky Rojo' too!
'Sky Rojo', which translates to 'Red Sky', is an upcoming Spanish action crime drama brought to us by creator Alex Pina, the same person behind the internationally- successful 'Money Heist'.
'Sky Rojo' tells the story of three sex workers who are trying to flee from the chains of a human trafficking cartel.
Netflix finally dropped the trailer for the upcoming action series, and it looks bomb (quite literally).
Take a look at the video here.
The series stars Verónica Sánchez as Coral, Yany Prado as Gina, and Lali Espósito as Wendy.
Asier Etxeandia, who plays crime lord Romeo, described 'Sky Rojo' as "like Charlie’s Angels, but far more punky".
The series boasts of intense car chases, action scenes, fight sequences, and carnal exhibitions.
The trailer shows a montage of clips highlighting the glamourous yet dangerous lives of Coral, Gina, and Wendy, three prostitutes trying to run away from their pimp, Romeo.
Clad in their skimpy outfits and sky-rocket high-heeled shoes, the three hit the road after leaving their pimp seriously injured. They are determined to escape from the clutches of the powerful cartel, no matter what it takes.
"Staying alive for five more minutes. That is the plan," the trailer announcement read.
According to Peris Costumes (costume provider of the series), the three sex workers have different origins: one Spanish, one Argentinean, and one from Cuba.
Not much is known yet about their background stories. How did they end up in the sex industry and the hands of their pimp? Where will they go to for help? We expect to know more in the upcoming months.
Netflix announced the release date for 'Sky Rojo' along with the official trailer. The series will drop on the streaming giant on March 19, 2021.
'Sky Rojo' managed to resume productions amidst the Coronavirus pandemic last year. The team only suffered initial filming setbacks, but were allowed to continue production in July after creators quarantined the international cast. During this period, Netflix took care of the food delivery arrangement, Financial Times reported.
Following the global success of 'Money Heist' and 'Elite', we can expect Netflix to invest in more Spanish titles in the future.
Following the success of Spanish titles abroad, Netflix Spain director of contents Verónica Fernández said via Variety that the country has "a strong culture, which is also highly diverse and creators are passionate, which can prove attractive abroad."
