The first trailer for El Embarcadero (The Pier), reveals what’s described as a sensual romantic thriller from creators Alex Pina and Esther Martínez of worldwide phenomenon Money Heist.

The Spanish series focuses on Alexandra, an architect who tries to get to the bottom of who her husband Oscar was after he commits suicide and she discovers he was leading a double life with another woman, Veronica. It also explores her discovery of how she was viewed through his eyes, and who she can be after his passing.

Moviestar + produced the series, set to debut in 2019, with Atresmedia Studios and Pina’s Vancouver Media.

At a Moviestar + upfront in September, Martínez said they wanted to tell “a tale of characters; their journey,” reports Variety.

“I’ve spent years writing female characters who are not just women, [and] do other things, have other problems,” she said. “But in The Pier, the women behave like women; [they] feel in a deeper manner.”
