Money Heist & The Pier’s Álvaro Morte
& Álex Pina
By Elizabeth Bowen-Tombari
In the last year, Álvaro Morte and Álex Pina’s lives have undergone a big change. Pina, creator, executive producer and writer for Money Heist (La casa de papel) and The Pier (El embarcadero), as well as Morte, who stars in both shows, have gone from working with broadcasters in Spain to reaching global audiences with Netflix and Movistar+.
Money Heist, which aired on Antena 3 in Spain, launched globally on Netflix and recently received an International Emmy for best drama. Filming has started on its third season. Meanwhile, The Pier, a Movistar+ original defined by Pina as his “sexiest” production to date, made its world premiere at MIPCOM.
In this interview with World Screen Weekly, Morte and Pina talk about their experiences in both productions, the freedom of working with OTT platforms and what’s in store for Money Heist’s new chapter.
This interview was filmed in Spanish and is available with subtitles in English, French and Mandarin. Watch it here.
