One of the series is Intimidad, which was created by Verónica Fernandes and Laura Sarmiento and will be directed by Jorge Torregrossa, Ben Gutteridge, Marta Font and Koldo Almandoz. “The leak of a sex video by a promising politician serves as a catalyst for the story of four women treading the fine line between public and private life,” says the official synopsis.
