BELÉN ATIENZA, SANDRA HERMIDA AND JESÚS DE LA VEGA TO PRODUCE ALMA, A YOUNG ADULT SUPERNATURAL DRAMA CREATED AND DIRECTED BY SERGIO G. SÁNCHEZ
Logline: After surviving a bus crash that kills most of her classmates, Alma awakes with no memories of the incident or her past. Her parents seem like strangers and her home is a place filled with secrets and mystery. She gets the growing suspicion that everyone around her is lying, trying to turn her into someone else. Trapped in a world that doesn't feel her own, she must unravel the events that led to the accident before her true identity vanishes forever.

Quote Belén Atienza, Sandra Hermida and Jesús de la Vega: It is a joy and a privilege for us to be joining forces with Netflix to bring to the screen Sergio's unique and groundbreaking universe. People all around the world will be thrilled and inspired by a harrowing storytelling that springs genuine emotions from the darkest places.
Quote Sergio G. Sánchez: Alma explores my favourite themes; the journey from childhood to maturity, the threshold between life and death, the emotional space where fantasy merges with reality. Only this time within a broader canvas that will give me the opportunity to expand the narrative into multi layered, intertwined storylines with a bigger spectrum of characters. It's going to be very exciting to bring this rich universe to life and I'm thrilled that Netflix is giving me the chance to reach a global audience with a Spanish language series that is deeply rooted in my own obsessions as a storyteller.
