Synopsis

Three stories that are part of the same story. In 1941, in a provincial town in Argentina, a girl confesses to a priest the first and diffuse sexual impulses she notices in her body, related to the attraction she feels for a young man named Videla who passes under her window every day. In 1977 a group of young revolutionaries prepares an attack on an airfield to liquidate a Videla who is no longer young and is known to all. And finally, an old woman -the girl in the first story- plays a game of cards with her grandson, who has come to visit her at the residence where she spends her days, and between moves tells him what happened to her son, the boy’s father, in what turns out to be a new confession.

Synopsis

“Do whatever you have to do,” Cándida Segunda said, “but don’t tarnish our family name.”

The year is 1969. Man’s first steps on the moon.
Navarro Ismael Ferrase, a man followed by a 127-metre-long shadow, a professional con artist and hatter by trade, waits for his wife Cándida to wake up from her coma; a coma she fell into after a row between the two of them caused them to crash their car.
As he waits for her, Navarro travels from city to city, trying to reinvent himself. He hopes to evolve, to change, to transform, so that when the day finally arrives, and Candida wakes up, he will have become the man she wanted him to be. This is his last chance to save their marriage.
But Navarro has a lot on his plate. His daughter has been kidnapped by an army of relentless paramilitaries whose mission is none other than to destroy him. Meanwhile, CCTV, the state TV network of communist China, plans to broadcast Navarro confessing to all his scams and fraudulent deeds live on air.
While the whole world is distracted by man’s first steps on the moon, Cándida wakes up after seven long years. What will she find? Will Navarro have become the husband she always dreamed of?

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.

Synopsis

A 47-year-old actor in Los Angeles learns by chance that he is idolised in a distant country for the role of a masked crusader he played 15 years ago, in a show that was cancelled after two seasons.

He decides to drop everything and head for this new country, Argentina, where the press elevate him to the level of hero and celebrity, and he enjoys the adulation of millions of people. In Argentina, the people adopt him as one of their own, because his fictional hero is just the man they need to confront the murky political reality of a country experiencing yet another military dictatorship, with thousands of people being disappeared.

Taking advantage of this newfound success and the accompanying celebrity, the actor begins appearing as his character, Zorro, in countless prime-time TV shows. And he starts planning his definitive comeback, writing a film that will catapult him back to fame. But to make his dream a reality he must first confront the whims of the local producers in whose hands the film’s fate lies.

With the transition from military dictatorship to democracy, and the awarding of the 78 World Cup to Argentina, the public appetite for a masked crusader fighting for the rights of the voiceless wanes, and the invites to appear on popular talk shows dry up. On the other hand, he finally reaches an agreement with one of the most powerful TV channels in Argentina. They agree to make his film if, in exchange, he will perform in character every day at the Royal Madrid Circus in a resort on the Atlantic coast, far from the capital.

Unfortunately, the military dictatorship clamps down on the TV channel and the financing for his film vanishes into thin ar. This comes just at the moment when the director of the largest tabloid publishing group in the country, on the verge of bankruptcy, decides to change his approach. In a cruel plot, the publisher that once put him on a pedestal now decides to engage its readership, many of whom are fans of the actor, by using fake news to discredit the one thing that Zorro, Diego de la Vega and Guy Williams all shared: their code of honour…
