APC Boards Movistar’s Invisible Line


Paris-based About Premium Content (APC) has taken the global distribution rights for the Movistar+ drama series The Invisible Line, excluding Spain and Latin America.

Set in the 1960s in the Basque Country in Spain, The Invisible Line tells the story of the start of a war that caused more than 800 deaths and lasted 50 years. After ETA leader Txabi Etxebarrieta kills Officer José Antonio Pardines and is then killed himself in a shooting by the Guardia Civil, he becomes the first to kill and the first to be killed in the ETA movement and decades-long war.

Based on an original idea from Abel García Roure, written by Michel Gaztambide and Alejandro Hernández and directed by Mariano Barroso, The Invisible Line is slated to premiere on Movistar in 2020. The Spanish-language series is produced by Movistar+ in collaboration with Sentido Films and Corte y Confección de Peclículas.

Emmanuelle Guilbart and Laurent Boissel, joint-CEOs and co-founders at APC, said: “Following our successful partnership with Movistar on Gigantes, we are thrilled to be working together again on this exciting new thriller The Invisible Line. There is a huge global appetite for Spanish drama and we look forward to taking this compelling and powerful story to broadcasters and audiences worldwide.”
