Pedro Almodóvar will produce a series for Apple TV based on one of his own films

2022 began with several good news where the protagonist is the Spanish filmmaker Phedron almodovar: Since the premiere of his movie Madres Paralelas on Netflix and the announcement of his first film in English, now there is the news that will produce his first series for Apple TV: nothing more and nothing less than an adaptation of his tape Women at the edge of a nervous attack, according to information from The Hollywood Reporter.

There is still not much information about it since this project is in an initial phase, where only details such as the people who will participate in the production are known, as well as the name of the possible protagonist, and other more general information. We tell you.

Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, the series for Apple TV

Again, this material will be directed and produced by Pedro Almodovar (who better than himself, who already knows the story?) through his production company The desire, With 3Pas Studios, Eugenio Derbez’s company, and Lionsgate.

Another interesting fact about this adaptation of the 1988 film is that will be bilingual, as there will be dialogues in both English and Spanish.

And the distribution? There is still no more information about it; the only thing that is known so far is that the possible protagonist would be Gina Rodriguez, a young American actress of Puerto Rican origin; his name began to sound worldwide thanks to his work in Jane the Virgin.

In addition, Rodríguez will serve as executive producer with Almodóvar, who this time will not be so involved in the script; the written adaptation will be in charge of the screenwriter Noelle Valdivia, who will also be showrunner of the series.

Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988)

34 years ago the movie was released Women at the edge of a nervous attack, directed by Almodóvar, who also wrote the script. Among the cast were figures such as Carmen Maura, Antonio Banderas, Julieta Serrano, Rosy de Palma, María Barranco, Chus Lampreave, Guillermo Montesinos, Fernando Guillén and Kiti Manver, to name a few.

The story revolves around Pepa, who finds out that she is pregnant at the same time that Iván, her partner, ends the relationship. At that moment, she looks for him to give him the news of the child she is expecting, but he ignores her calls and messages.

After some situations, Pepa discovers the existence of Carlos, son of Iván and his wife Lucía, who, upon learning of the whole situation, seeks to claim her husband’s infidelities with a gun in hand. However, he is at the airport with his new girlfriend?
