We reveal the premiere date, trailer, and official poster for Memento Mori, based on the first novel by César Pérez Gellida in the trilogy 'Versos, canciones y trocitos de carne'. The six episodes of the series, starring Yon González, Francisco Ortiz and Juan Echanove, will be available exclusively on Prime Video on 27 October in Spain and Portugal.
Produced by Zebra Producciones (Grupo iZen), the series begins when the body of a young woman with her eyelids amputated appears in Valladolid. Inspector Sancho (Francisco Ortiz) foresees a chain of murders, and with the support of "Carapocha" (Juan Echanove), one of the leading experts on serial killers, follows the trail of corpses that Augusto (Yon González), a sociopath with refined tastes, leaves around the city. They soon discover that they are dealing with a killer who commits crimes with a soundtrack and signs the bodies of his victims with poems. What Sancho doesn't know is that the chase will turn into a very personal duel.
The series stars Yon González (Las chicas del cable, El Internado), Francisco Ortiz (García!, El Cid), Juan Echanove (Desaparecidos, Alatriste), Olivia Baglivi (Libélulas, Brigada Costa del Sol), and Manuela Vellés (Historias para no dormir, Citas Barcelona).
