MADRID, Feb. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- ATRESERIES is starting this year with the world premiere of 'Cuerpo de Élite', a highly irreverent comedy series starring Cristina Castaño (El Club de la Comedia); Canco Rodríguez (Tu Cara Me Suena); Joaquín Reyes (El Club de la Comedia); Ana Morgade (Zapeando); Antonio Garrido (Los Protegidos), and El Langui, among others.
Produced by Atresmedia, in collaboration with MOD Productions, 'Cuerpo de Élite' premieres next Thursday, February 8, during prime time and will be simultaneously broadcast in Spain.
The leading men and women are the top cops from each of Spain's regions ? a bomb squad expert, a green beret, a (fake) agent of the national police, a mossa d'esquadra (Catalan regional police woman) and an Ertzaina (Basque regional police officer) ? whose mission changes with each episode. The outlandish situations they get into, and their most unusual personalities are the key ingredients in this raucous comedy.
PREMIERE - Thursday, February 8:
Official Synopsis of Cuerpo de Élite'
Ever since the government approved its creation during Spain's Transition to Democracy, a secret special operations group has existed, made up of members of the different police forces that protect the country, though no one knows of their existence. In light of the success of this most singular Elite Squad ? and though it's really hard to believe in light of the antics of its members ? the Minister of the Interior decides to expand the project and set up a new unit.
A green beret, a Catalan police woman, a Jesuit Basque cop, a bomb squad expert and a thief who passes himself off as a national police agent, are going to have to set aside their differences and tackle each mission impossible together. They're definitely the world's finest police squad (but the worst imaginable).
