Itziar Ituño (‘La Casa de Papel’) and Najwa Nimri (‘La Casa de Papel’) come back to their roles as policewomen Raquel Murillo and Alicia Sierra respectively.
Samantha Siqueiros (‘Lady of Steel’), Julien Paschal (‘One Year, One Night’), Masi Rodríguez and Rachel Lascar (‘Through my window’) complete the cast for ‘BERLIN’.
The eight episodes of the series, created by Álex Pina (‘La Casa de Papel’, ‘Sky Rojo’) and Esther Martínez Lobato (‘La Casa de Papel’, ‘Sky Rojo’), are written by Álex Pina, Esther Martínez Lobato, David Barrocal, David Oliva and Lorena G. Maldonado. Will be directed by Albert Pintó (‘Sky Rojo’, ‘Malasaña 32’), David Barrocal (‘Sky Rojo’) and Geoffrey Cowper (‘Day Release’).
