Prime Video is doubling down in Spain with a slate of new movies, drama series, docs and true-crime shows.

The streamer unveiled its latest slate at a Prime Video Presents event in Madrid last night, with thriller feature Zeta, scripted series Cochinas, a trio of unscripted shows and doc La Joia: Bad Gyal. Original series Reina Roja was confirmed for a third season, while live entertainment show Operación Triunfo has also landed a new season.

Ricardo Cabornero, Director at Prime Video in Spain and Portugal, claimed it had been a “record-breaking year” for the service in Iberia as he rolled out the titles.

Spy pic Zeta follows a Spanish CNI agent, Zeta, who is tasked with tracking down a former spy who participated in an undercover mission 35 years before, with a Colombian spook, Alfa, also trying to find him. The other five participants are murdered at the same time at different embassies around the world, and as Zeta and Alfa advance in their investigations, they unearth secrets that have been hidden for decades including the existence of a shadowy spy who may hold the answers to everything.

Mario Casas (No Matarás) will star, with Dani de Torre (El Desconocido) directing a script from Oriol Paulo (Los Renglones Torcidos de Dios) and Jordi Vallejo (El Inocente). Fonte Films is producin, with Carla Perez Albéniz (Mientras Dure la Guerra) the executive producer and Pablo Isla the producer. It launches soon on Prime Video.

Cochinas follows conservative housewife Nines in Valladolid in 1998, who is forced to take over the family video store when her husband falls into a coma. She discovers the business is bankrupt and that the only genre making them money is porn, and decides to specialize in the genre. Working with foul-mouthed employee Chon and an inveterate movie buff, they turn the store into the city’s first ‘porn video club.’

Goya award-winner Elena Anaya (Las Largas Sombras, La Piel que Habito) stars with Oslodije producing. Eneko Gutierrez Sola and Aritz Cirbián are the executive producers, with Carlos del Hoyo and Irene Bohoyo the scriptwriters and Andrea Jaurrieta (Nina) directing.

On the true-crime front, Prime Video Spain is adding docu-series Cómo Cazar a un Monstruo, which follows the story of YouTuber and filmmaker Carles Tamayo as he tries to seek justice in the face of the impunity for a child molester living outside the law; Medina: El Estafador de Famosos, about the alleged celebrity scammer Antonio Medina; and Infiltrada en el Búnker, about the longest infiltration of a European pharmaceutical lab

Cómo Cazar a un Monstruo launches on September 6 and comes from Bambú Producciones production with Ramón Campos as producer and writer along with Carles Tamayo, who also serves as director. The five-part Medina: El Estafador de Famosos launches in October and is produced by El Terrat with Jorge Ponce, Lydia Cerrudo, Ricardo Castella and Xen Subiratas as executive producers. Infiltrada en el Búnker is directed by Pablo de la Chica (Mama) and executive produced by Kevin Iglesias and David Casas of Salon Indien Films and with Marias Recarte and Rosaura Romero. Show is due next year.

Original doc La Joia: Bad Gyal follows Spanish singer Bad Gyal, exploring how she attempted to conquer the mainstream while her debut album was postponed for over a year for reasons beyond her control. Vampire Films is making the doc in co-production with Double Body, Entrelíneas and Nanouk Films. David Camarero is the director and the film will premiere on Prime Video at the end of this year. A teaser trailer was dropped during the event.
