Paramount+ today debuted the official trailer and key art for the upcoming Spanish-language original drama series WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT. Produced by VIS, the international studio division of Paramount, the series will premiere in the U.S., Canada and Australia on Thursday, August 18, exclusively on Paramount+.
WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT will also air on Paramount+ in Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France upon the service’s launch in those regions.
Created by Cristóbal Garrido and Adolfo Valor (“Honeymoon with My Mother”), WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT explores the healing journey of five strangers, each dealing with the loss of a loved one, whose lives intersect in a group therapy session.
The feel-good drama recounts the moments that derive from death while optimistically portraying how, despite the wounds, it is possible to laugh, love, and, most importantly, live again.
The outstanding cast includes Erick Elías (“100 Días Para Enamorarnos,” “Betty en NY”) as Pardo, a Mexican rock musician who now has to care for his children whom he barely knows; Marta Hazas (“Velvet,” “Pequeñas Coincidencias”) as Sara, a mother and doctor who has lost the love of her life and whose 8-year-old son is obsessed with death; Blanca Portillo (“Los Abrazos Rotos,” “Maixabel”) as Dr. Laforet, a psychologist with unconventional methods; Francesc Orella (“Merlí,” “Inés del Alma Mía”) as Luis, a successful businessman who thinks he has everything under control; and Alba Planas (“Express,” “Skam”) as Graci, a college student with her whole life ahead of her forced to abide by a life-changing promise she made to her dying boyfriend.
