Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo have had to face the difficult task of delivering the first episodes of ‘Poison’ to the time of the premiere, while they were still writing and filming the rest of the season, but they have encountered an obstacle that no one predicted: the coronavirus. The ‘Poison’ has been one of the many productions that have had to be interrupted by the alarm state imposed by the Government to cut the spread of the pandemic, which apparently has prevented the series for their premiere on the 29th of march.
Atresplayer Premium released only the first episode on that date, as reported by José Antonio Antón, deputy director of the contents of Atresmedia TV. “From Atresmedia, we have decided to maintain the release of the first chapter in the planned date because we know that ‘Poison’ is a series of very expected. Fortunately we’ll get to have it just in time for the march 29 and is a true wonder that they work almost like a mini-movie and an awesome prologue to all that is to come”.
When Atresmedia announced that Javis would continue rolling ‘Poison’ during his broadcast, some of us started to worry. Although there are series that combine his production with his broadcast antenna (which is the case of the titanic work that they do in fiction daily as ‘Love is forever’), the boom of own production of the platforms and the chains of cable has spread a way of working much more suited to the creative teams and for the final result of the work: first occurs and, at least when everything is already filmed and is in the process of post-production, opens the series. It is likely that Atresmedia has wanted to accelerate the process from the beginning to use ‘Poison’ as a push for its new streaming platform Atresplayer Premium, which will be issued in exclusive series of Javis. They already did the same for the brand Flooxer, the streaming platform of the same company, premiered years ago, ‘Paquita Rooms’, before Netflix owned it.
The series marks a new step in the career of the young creators of ‘The call’ and ‘Paquita Rooms’: a series with episodes of 50 minutes that tells a real story, the life of the icon shemale Cristina Ortiz “the Poison”and whose episodes are directed by them, but also by Mikel Rueda and Alex Rodrigo. This we already said that ‘Poison’ is going to be very epic in the emotional, and to roll with a cast largely made up of actresses transgender has been a very positive experience.
From Atresmedia are optimistic with the return of ‘Poison’ after its premiere, is also very excited about the result that you are seeing: “For the rest of the chapters, you will have to wait a bit because yes we want to be able to issue the rest of the series in continuity, and currently due to the situation that we face that we cannot guarantee it. The time will mark the evolution of this crisis. We are optimistic and we hope that very soon we can take the recordings and we can convey to the public the rest of this great blockbuster. What we have already been able to see, and what we are still moving we are leaving directly without words as it can be already anticipated by the promos and the trailer that we have released. All the team of Atresmedia Studios and Sum Latin are doing an unprecedented job, and we really thought that the series is going to break all the moulds by the talent that a waste of all involved in its production. Since then has exceeded even our highest expectations. Although the filming is stopped, the teams are focusing on other aspects of the production, so we are going ahead tasks. We hope that very soon all the fans of the series can see it in Atresplayer Premium. For the moment, I think that the chapter pilot is going to excite you”.
