German crime thriller Echos and Spanish American drama La Fortuna both premiere at SBS on Demand on Thursday -the latter stars Stanley Tucci.
All six episodes available to stream. In German with English subtitles.
Max (Nick Romeo Reimann), Nellie (Lilly Dreesen) and Janosch (Yasin Boynuince) are vapid, privileged twenty-somethings who don’t like to think about much else but partying. When they hear of an illegal rave at a secret location, they are excited to go. Their destination – the catacombs, a system of tunnels underneath the central station, below the picturesque city of Munich, undisturbed by the authorities.
But something goes horribly wrong when a fire breaks out. Dozens are injured in the ensuing panic, some go missing. The next day, a body is found on the banks of the river – it is Max’s girlfriend, and he has been missing since the fire.
An invisible web seems to be spinning from a real estate tycoon to the shadowy figures living in the catacombs. And the investigating police inspector hides a dark secret in her basement. Nellie and Janosch will have to get to the bottom of it, not only for Max’s sake, but also for their own. United against a common enemy – or so it seems, because soon, it’s not clear at all anymore who they are up against.
All six episodes available to stream. In Spanish and English with English subtitles.
Alex Ventura (Álvaro Mel) never imagined his first day on the job at the Ministry of Culture would change his life forever. In the depths of the ocean off the Southern Spanish coast, Captain Frank Wild (Stanley Tucci) and his team of buccaneers have discovered the largest underwater treasure ever. Proving that the ‘La Fortuna’ and its booty actually sank in Spanish waters is hard enough, let alone taking it back from Wild and his modern- day freebooters. Not to mention the hot potato the whole incident is on a diplomatic level.
Teaming up with free-spirited archival clerk Lucia (Ana Polvorosa) and Jonas Pierce (Clarke Peters), a brilliant American lawyer with a passion for old pirate stories, Alex sets out on the adventure of his life that will teach him the value of commitment, friendship and even love. La Fortuna is a David and Goliath battle of a highly unlikely odd-couple replete with unexpected setbacks, face-offs and revelations, as they must take on not only the last modern pirate but also the seemingly insurmountable forces behind him.
La Fortuna features Oscar®-winning director Alejandro Amenábar stars Oscar-nominated Stanley Tucci.
