THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RINGS OF POWER
Prime Video’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history.
This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.
Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.
From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.
Based on ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and Appendices by J.R.R. Tolkien.

A PRIVATE AFFAIR
In the late 1940s in Galicia, a daring young upper-class woman with the soul of a policeman, Marina Quiroga (Aura Garrido), sets out to hunt down the serial killer who has been stalking the city for months, and she does so with the help of her faithful butler, Hector (Jean Reno).
A discreet and helpful man whose sensitivity and audacity always place him at the key point of the investigation.
Together they will fight against all obstacles to achieve it and neither the gender prejudices of the time, nor the resistance of the new commissioner or the attempts of Marina’s mother to marry her off, will prevent them from finally discovering the truth.
The eight-episode series is produced by Bambú Producciones, created by Teresa Fernández-Valdés, Ramón Campos and Gema R. Neira, and directed by David Pinillos, María Ripoll and Daniel Aranyo.
