Spanish Thriller I Know Who You Are Clinches BBC Slot


LONDON: BBC Four has added to its lineup the Spanish thriller I Know Who You Are.

The 10×70-minute crime drama is directed and executive produced by Pau Freixas, who was also behind the Spanish hit The Red Band Society. I Know Who You Are begins as a 55-year-old man is staggering along a highway after a terrible accident, though he has no memory of who he is or how he got there. With the disappearance of his niece on the same night, and evidence pointing to him as the killer, he must find a way to prove his innocence, even though he himself is unsure of whether or not he’s guilty.

The series is produced by Filmax International and Mediaset España and distributed by Arrow Films.

Cassian Harrison, channel editor at BBC Four, said: “BBC Four continues to be the home of the very best international drama and I’m delighted that we are expanding our range with our first Spanish thriller. With a gripping story line and complex characters, this promises to be a riveting addition to our Saturday night lineup.”

Sue Deeks, the head of BBC program acquisitions, added: “Our first contemporary Spanish drama is an intriguing, multi-layered series which quickly becomes the dramatic equivalent of a page-turning thriller.”

Tom Stewart, the acquisitions director at Arrow Films, said: “Thrilled to have such an exciting piece of television go out on one of the leading broadcasters for international television and also beginning a successful collaboration with both Filmax and Mediaset España.”
