April seems to be a good month for Apple TV+ subscribers, as news of new projects are starting to come in. The latest piece of news confirmed that Apple has ordered a new thriller series that is going to be titled Now and Then. Now and Then is a bilingual (Spanish and English) project from Bambú Producciones, created by Ramón Campos, Teresa Fernández-Valdés and Gema R. Neira. This is the same team that created successful projects such as Velvet, Cable Girls and Grand Hotel.
The show’s executive producer is going to be Gideon Raff, the man behind the hit series Homeland and The Spy, who will also direct the first two episodes of the show.
Not much is known about the show at this moment, as we’re dealing with a very much new piece of news, but Apple has provided us with a short summary of the series’ plot: “Set in Miami with an all-Hispanic cast, “Now and Then” is a multi-layered thriller that explores the differences between youthful aspirations and the reality of adulthood, when the lives of a group of college best friends are forever changed after a celebratory weekend ends up with one of them dead. Now, 20 years later, the remaining five are reluctantly reunited by a threat that puts their seemingly perfect worlds at risk.”
We don’t have a release window at this moment, but we do know that Campos and Neira will be in charge of the writing, while Campos and Fernández-Valdés will serve as the showrunners for this thrilling series. This Hispanic show is actually going to be part of a growing offering of Apple Originals from award-winning global storytellers, which includes works from Latin America and Asia.
We have absolutely no doubt that Now and Then is going to be an exciting new show and we’re looking forward to getting some more news about the show and finally see it on Apple TV+.
