Urban, la vida es nuestra, a new series starring María Pedraza (Elite), Asia Ortega (El internado: Las cumbres) and Bernardo Flores (Pasión de Gavilanes), will premiere soon exclusively on Prime Video before its free-to-air broadcast in some of Mediaset Spain channels. The fiction will narrate the journey of two radically different and dreamy girls who embark on a journey together to escape from their presents and try to succeed in urban music.

The series, created and developed by Nico Frasquet, Amanda Encinas, Paloma Rando and Carlos del Hoyo, is based on an original idea by Aitor Gabilondo and Jota Aceytuno. Produced by Mediaset España in collaboration with Alea Media (Entrevías, Patria), Urban, la vida es nuestra will have six 50-minute episodes.

“United by destiny, Lola (María Pedraza) and Yanet (Asia Ortega) will embark on a trip to Malaga that will be both their escape from a complicated present and a more than uncertain future. There they will meet Patrick (Bernardo Flores), a young man from the neighborhood who already stands out in urban music and is close to succeeding. The three protagonists will be immersed in a love triangle, betrayals and endless nights where ego, love, rivalry and pending accounts will mark the events of that new life in which they will have to decide how far they are willing to go to achieve their objectives”, reads the official synopsis of Urban, la vida es nuestra.

Grimmfest Easter launched in 2021 as an annual event, taking place over the Easter Weekend, and complimenting the long-established festival in October. The initial Easter festival was online only, due to the Covid-19 Lockdown in the UK. But 2022 sees it going live at regular host venue the Odeon Great Northern in Manchester UK, screening exclusive feature film premieres, together with Q&As and talks.

Grimmfest Easter will be a hybrid event with an online element, which will complement and sit alongside the live festival. Much of the content will cross both events but there will also be one or two online exclusives.

Grimmfest Easter offers all the cinematic thrills, spills, and chills, all the blood and black comedy that you have come to expect from Grimmfest, but in a leaner, meaner, more concentrated form. Something to satisfy even the most jaded of palates. Here are some highlights:

In the first of a brace of UK Premiere, white-knuckle thrillers from Spain, Maria Pedraza (Netflix’s Money Heist), stars as a troubled young woman whose search for online romance amid the Covid-19 Lockdown unleashes a particularly intrusive stalker, in the UK premiere of Alfonso Cortés-Cavanillas’ slippery psychodrama of identity theft and personality breakdown, Ego.
