Apple TV+ has announced a series order for Now and Then, a new drama series that will be shot in Spanish and English from Bambú Producciones and creators Ramón Campos, Teresa Fernández-Valdés, and Gema R. Neira, the same team behind Velvet, Cable Girls, and Grand Hotel. Gideon Raff (The Spy, Homeland) will executive produce and direct the first two episodes.
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.
Campos and Fernández-Valdés will serve as showrunners, and the series will be written by Neira and Campos with their team. Bambú Producciones will produce the series for Apple TV+.
The new series will join a growing offering of Apple Originals from award-winning global storytellers, including Echo 3, a new action-thriller set between South America and the U.S., and written by Academy Award-winning producer and writer Mark Boal; Acapulco, a new Spanish and English language half-hour comedy series starring Eugenio Derbez from creators Austin Winsberg, Eduardo Cisneros and Jason Shuman; new stories from the multi-Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA Award-winning director, writer, producer, cinematographer and editor, Alfonso Cuarón who currently has an overall deal to develop television projects exclusively for Apple TV+ through his production company Esperanto Filmoj; Pachinko, a highly anticipated drama series based on the acclaimed novel, and written and executive produced by Soo Hugh; and Dr. Brain, a new Korean-language sci-fi thriller written and directed by visionary filmmaker Kim Jee-woon.
