Javier Ambrossi, Javier Calvo Unveil New Movistar Plus+ Original


Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo, whose credits include Paquita Salas and Veneno, have unveiled La Mesías, a new original for Movistar Plus+.

Ambrossi and Calvo serve as writers, directors and producers on the Spanish family thriller, which hails from their company, Suma Content. “We want to go a step further than we did in Veneno by creating an almost apocalyptic family drama and delving once again into faith, but from a darker and more painful place,” Calvo said.

“It has been almost a year and a half of very intense work,” Ambrossi added. “Documentation, research, writing, making an in-depth study of the issues we want to address. I couldn’t be happier to be sharing with the world this series that has found its home on Movistar Plus+.”

“Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi are exceptional creators, with a unique, personal and universal perspective,” noted Domingo Corral, fiction director at Movistar Plus+. “Movistar Plus+ is a Spanish platform that supports the best creative talent in Spain. We are now fortunate to be able to work with Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi, who will undoubtedly help us tell the stories we want to create.”

Movistar Plus+ International is handling international distribution.
