A Grupo Ganga Production for TVE
Based on an idea by Joaquín Oristrell
Fugitiva is a prime time series based on an idea by Joaquín Oristrell, starring Paz Vega along with a major international cast highlighting Roberto Álamo, Charo López, Mercedes Sampietro, José Manuel Poga and mexican actors Julio Bracho, Odiseo Bichir, Arantza Ruiz and Luisa Rubino. Paz Vega plays the role of Magda, a wealthy woman who, having reached a crossroads, sees how her world breaks out and finds herself forced to keep her children away from an extremely dangerous situation. According to Joaquín Oristrell “This is a series about a strong woman and the process of becoming tough by taking difficult decisions”.
The original soundtrack, composed by Juan Pablo Compaired, is key. The series intro song is performed by Ana Guerra, the popular “Operación Triunfo” tv show contestant.
Fugitiva has been shooted in natural locations between Madrid and Benidorm, destination chosen due to its visual richness that makes this city almost one more character of the series. The town’s cultural diversity and visual exuberance makes it the perfect choice. A team of more than 100 people participates in filming under the supervision of Joaquín Manchado, Direction of Photography.
Magda Escudero seems to have everything in life. Married to the mexican tycoon Alejandro Guzmán, mother of three children that loves her, owner of a luxury mansion located in one of the most exclusive areas of Mexico City… nobody suspects that the life of an spanish ex-model is far from being a dream. Due to her husband’s dirty businesses and scores to settle, Magda and her children are in permanent death threat. While Alejandro is away on a trip to close a business deal in Spain, Magda and her children are kidnapped by a criminal organization. Magda suddenly loses everything overnight and she finds herself forced to fight for her own life and her family’s.
Far from home and with no means, she will get involved in a continuous and dizzing escape towards freedom while lost in a permanent extreme situation that will leave them breathless and will push them to fight every minute for the only thing they have left: their lifes.
90 hours action series
Fugitiva is a story of flight, chase, alliance and betrayal. The plot, that goes on for barely four days long, makes the difference with the usual thrillers since it is not only focused in the scheme and action, but also in Magda and her family’s changing feelings as well as those of the different characters bumping with them in their escape.
This “emotional journey” far from being a mere add-on in the plot, is the series core and makes the characters really recognizable and attractive. As a last resort, Fugitiva is a series for everybody since anyone can identify with Magda and her fight for survival and protect their beloved ones.
