The producer at Grupo Secuoya starts filming the documentary series that will provide a context for the premiere of “Victor Ros” on channel TVE 1. In addition, a special edition of "El misterio de la casa Aranda” will be launched.
Victor Ros casts a long shadow. Having produced the mini-series “Victor Ros”, premiered by Movistar and soon to be released on channel TVE1, the public channel has commissioned New Atlantis a documentary series that will offer some context. Filming will start in October. Jeronimo Tristante, the author of the novel that carries the same name and who is behind this new production, explains: “The Spain of Victor Ros” takes a step back from the more historicist vision, and delves into Spain’s customs by showing us how people lived and thought at the end of the 19th century.” The beginnings of forensic science, the mysteries of that era, spiritualism, assassinations, duels… each episode will shed light on situations that have to do with the plot of that day, and will be “contextualised with archive images, footage from historical enclaves, scenes from the series, and interventions from experts: chroniclers, historians, journalists and anyone with some authority on the subject”, concludes Tristante.
Meanwhile, the premiere of the fiction series “Victor Ros” and of the documentary will be backed up with the launch of a special edition “El misterio de la Casa Aranda” (Plaza&Janés), which is the first of the four Victor Ros novels, on which the series is based. It includes a review on the production by New Atlantis and an ad hoc cover to the premiere, with the actor Carles Francino playing the role of the peculiar detective in the Metropolitan Brigade.
The novel will be available in print and in digital format, and coincides with the premiere of the series on channel TVE. Jeronimo Tristante, creator of this character, has already published four volumes that chronicle the adventures of this Madrid-style Sherlock and is working on the fifth volume, which will see the light next June.
