La Casa de papel: Does it deserves all this buzz?
Money Heist the crime thriller, known in Spanish as La Casa de Papel. The most-watched series not in the English language.
This Spanish thriller with revolutionary scent, broadcast by Netflix worldwide, has become one of the series that everyone is talking about. Decryption of a success without a hitch, while the new season arrives.
La Casa de papel thriller of the Spanish channel Antena 3 available on Netflix has emerged as the successful surprise of the beginning of this year 2018.
How can we actually explain that a series from a country with a bit known production stands out as the popular phenomenon serial of the moment?
This story of twists and turns seems the ideal recipe to attract the curious and create “The BUZZ“, between suspense, good feelings and spirit of protest. A clever, intriguing but uneven entertainment, whose final episodes arrive on the VODS platform soon.
An eye catching concept!
Casa de papel follows a group of eight thieves, who enter the Royal Mint of Spain to print their tickets. Locked up with sixty-seven hostages, they plan that the whole mission takes place over the course of 11 days. With the goal to amass a loot of 2.4 billion Euros.
Their charismatic leader, nicknamed the Professor (played by Alvaro Morte), directs the operations from the outside, in a disused shed. A cop, Raquel Murillo, is in charge of leading the negotiations.
La Casa de papel is based on this simple and effective starting point. The Professor, a brilliant puppeteer, seems to have planned everything, even the most unlikely situations.
Hard to know if La Casa de papel would have been such a phenomenon without Netflix. But its success has certainly significant impact on the platform. Therefore as it seems a third season is coming soon, with the news being confirmed by Netflix in Rome. And will be exclusively produced by the streaming giants.
The word of mouth was impressiv. Perhaps encouraged by a wise use of platform algorithms and a highlight to all the episodes once the buzz launched.
As much as the series now has such an enormous following. Its star Alvaro Morte has reported to Press Association meeting fans who have had El Professor’s face tattooed on to their bodies. Also said “We have a What’s App chat group where we put everything that we have seen about ourselves …”
