Synopsis

Zoe (16), an introverted and rebellious teenager, signs up for a subscription to Mrs. Insta, a controversial fake-follower company with her stepfather’s credit card. She does it to stand out in front of the juries for a scholarship at a famous music conservatory that would eventually take her away from home. She has no idea that these followers are inmates of a high-security prison, that she will end up collaborating in unraveling a corrupt prison system, that the prisoners will end up fugitives in her home and that one of them will become the close friend she longed to find since her father’s death.  Despite not being accepted into the music conservatory for her less than transparent maneuver brought to light by the ruthless Mrs. Insta, a video of her playing the violin for her new controversial friends will end up being all the rage on social media and real followers will begin to arrive on her Instagram account.

Synopsis

Based on the case of Gabriela Arias Uriburu. Year 1991.

In 1991, Gabriela Arias Uriburu married Imad Shaban in Guatemala, despite the fact that he was a Catholic and she was a Muslim. They had three children together, but this was not enough to save their multicultural marriage, and in 1997 Gabriela filed for divorce with the Guatemalan Civil Court, which also granted her custody of their three children.
However, on 10 December 1997, Imad Shaban kidnapped their three children, Karim, Zahira and Sharif, from Guatemala and the four of them disappeared…

It was weeks before the FBI learnt that they had illegally entered Miami before travelling on to Jordan, a Muslim country. Under Jordanian law, Gabriela would only be able leave the country with the permission of her ex-husband’s family: if she went there, she wouldn’t be allowed to leave.

Her case, the first of its kind at the time, pitted the legal systems of East and West against one another. Gabriela’s only chance to see her children again would be to make it a leading case, learning to use the tools of diplomacy, press coverage and governmental pressure to turn the tide in her favour.

From Hillary Clinton and the Pope to the CIA and the FB; from the Presidents of Guatemala and Argentina to the King of Jordan himself, Abdullah II, nobody could ignore this desperate mother, ready to do whatever it took. They would all have to hear her out. A team of illegal commandos even proposed entering through Syria to carry out a counter-kidnapping, taking the children across the border, but they admitted it was unlikely all three children would make it out alive …

After putting together a comprehensive media strategy, it would take Gabriela a year to see her children again. And even that first visit was accompanied by rooftop snipers and a dozen security personnel. At last, though, the moment had arrived when she could finally give her youngest son a hug.

Gabriela has published four books that have been bestsellers on Amazon, published in Argentina and Spain.

Synopsis

Nine Letter is a miniseries of 12 episodes, one hour each.
It is an anthology that takes in a hundred years of the Hollywood Sign’s history and the events surrounding each of its 9 letters.
It is a historical drama based on real characters and events.
In two years’ time, on 8 December 2023, the Hollywood Sign will celebrate its 100th birthday, an occasion sure to be marked with much fanfare.

In 1978, to mark the 75th anniversary of Hollywood’s incorporation as a city, the original sign was replaced by a new one. The unveiling, for which the sign was surrounded by a mass of searchlights  flooding the sky above with beams of light, brought in a television audience of 60 million in the United States alone.

In short, ours is no ordinary protagonist. This is the story of 9 letters in sheet metal that form a sign 13 meters high, 106 meters long – 9 letters that spell out ‘Hollywood’.
A meditation on adaptation and reinvention.

The copyright for the Hollywood Sign, or more specifically the ‘Hollywood Stylized Mark’, belongs to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
NINE LETTERS has obtained permission for worldwide use of the Mark in this TV series from Global Icons.

Madrid, 1990. To save Cerro Belmonte, the neighbourhood where she grew up, from being unjustly expropriated at the hands of the city’s mayor, Esther Castellanos (28), an inexperienced but stubborn lawyer, will lead the elderly locals in a ceaseless struggle with the intransigent local authorities. In the process, they will gain their own constitution, anthem, flag and even political asylum from Fidel Castro, proclaiming themselves an independent country within the Kingdom of Spain.
This is the story of the Kingdom of Cerro Belmonte, a kingdom without a king.

Synopsis

Madrid, 1990. As the bulldozers and diggers prepare to begin expropriating the land of the Cerro Belmonte neighbourhood, an area of low-rise houses in the Valdezarza district of Madrid, the lawyer Esther Castellanos (28) gets ready to face the television cameras once more on behalf of the 250 sexagenarian residents whom the city council wants to pay a pittance to for their homes.

Behind them now is the hunger strike by 69 of the elderly residents, the trip to Cuba by 25 of them to sign a request for political asylum to Fidel Castro, and the declaration of independence that saw the neighbourhood renamed the ‘Kingdom of Cerro Belmonte’. All they need now is recognition from the UN, and they will become an independent country in the heart of Madrid. The words of the national anthem, composed by a local punk band, mention the mayor himself, but despite this he still pays them no heed.

When the red light of the television camera turns on – this time to discuss putting a toll booth on the Sinesio Delgado motorway to help raise funds for the new kingdom and warn the people of Madrid about the need show a passport to enter – a journalist asks her if they really think the city council is going to give in. It is then that Esther recounts what the Fidel told her when she asked him for advice: “Not more than a year ago I received a personal letter from Ronald Reagan typed in perfect Spanish,” said the communist leader, “Despite the adjustments to the embargo and the prohibition of American citizens from spending money in Cuba, the man asked me to shake hands with him in front of the cameras at the United Nations summit. Returning the gesture, I replied in perfect English: ‘A Thousand times No’. Perseverance is your only weapon against power. Answer a thousand times no and you will win by attrition.”
