New TV Series ‘Marbella’ Begins Filming on the Costa del Sol

A new television series, set in the world of organised crime on the Costa del Sol, has commenced filming on location. The series, titled ‘Marbella’, is a production of Movistar Plus+ and is based on an investigative report into the Marbella underworld published in 2021 by two reporters from El Pais. The Olive Press, which has been reporting on the Marbella underworld for over 17 years, is familiar with the subject matter.

‘Marbella’ to Showcase International Organised Crime

The series promises a complex narrative that intertwines multiple nationalities. If it stays true to life, it will feature British, Irish, Swedish, Moroccan, Dutch, South American, and Spanish gangsters. The storylines will blend traditional and cyber crimes, old-school crime bosses, rule-imposing youngsters, and the global pandemic, which has brought about significant changes.

Series Based on Investigative Report by Arturo Lezcano and Nacho Carretero

‘Marbella’ is based on an investigative report published in April 2021 by Arturo Lezcano and Nacho Carretero. Carretero is known for his acclaimed book ‘Fariña,’ which was also adapted into a series. One of the reporters who wrote the investigation upon which the series is based posted a picture of a clapper board to his Instagram.

Alberto Marini and Dani de la Torre Lead the Project

Screenwriter Alberto Marini and director Dani de la Torre, the creative forces behind the successful Movistar series ‘La Unidad,’ are leading the project. Both Lezcano and Carretero possess extensive knowledge of this underworld of crime, which extends far beyond the sunshine coast. It has turned the Costa del Sol and Marbella into a ‘global surveillance point in the fight against crime,’ according to Movistar Plus+.

Marbella: The UN of Organised Crime

Screenwriter Alberto Marini stated that when they discovered that Marbella has become the UN of organised crime today, with over a hundred active international gangs, they knew they wanted to write about it. Carretero announced the start of filming on Instagram, sharing an image of the first clapperboard.
