Amazon Prime Video preparing a reboot of the successful Spanish series El Internado (The Boarding School)

The production, which will begin filming in early 2020, will be titled El Internado: Las Cumbres with eight episodes to be shot at natural locations in northern Spain

Amazon Prime Video today announced their upcoming Amazon Exclusive series, El Internado: Las Cumbres, a new version of the successful series El Internado (The Boarding School) that marked a milestone for Spanish drama a decade ago earning huge success among audiences over its seven year run and what proved also to be the launching pad for some of Spain most famous actors today. The original series is currently available on Amazon Prime Video.

A haunting atmosphere, mystery, thriller and higher doses of terror are just some of the basic ingredients of El Internado: Las Cumbres. The story will take place in a school located next to an old monastery, in an inaccessible spot between the mountains, isolated from the world. The students are rebellious and problematic kids who will live under the strict and severe regime of discipline imposed by the center to reintegrate them into society. The surrounding forest is home to ancient legends, ever-present threats that will plunge the students into thrilling and terrifying adventures.

El Internado: Las Cumbres is an Atresmedia Studios and THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO co-production. At the head of the executive production will be the creator of the franchise, Laura Belloso, as well as Laura Fernandez Espeso and Javier Pons by THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO, and Ignacio Corrales and Sonia Martinez, from Atresmedia Studios, who will lead the scriptwriting team composed of Asier Anduenza, Sara Belloso and Abraham Sastre, who were also worked on El Internado (The Boarding School), available to all fans of the franchise on Amazon Prime Video

"It is undoubtedly with tremendous pride that we announce today a production of this size in Spain ", said Ricardo Cabornero, Head of Content at Amazon Prime Video Spain. "The international success of El Internado (The Boarding School) a decade ago continues to captivate thousands of fans today on Amazon Prime Video, and we are sure that this new version of the series will be a meeting point for all, as well as conquering new audiences".

"El Internado (The Boarding School) was the precursor in Spain of the current great successes of the television series. It broke molds in terms of production and distribution, amassed a huge fan base and launched a new generation of actors, many of whom are the stars of today. The launch of this new series, led by Laura Belloso and most of the original scriptwriters, revitalizes the phenomenon in a moment of excellence for drama production in our country, with the challenge of reaching and conquering global audiences." , commented Laura Fernández Espeso, corporate and television director of THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO.

"For Atresmedia, the return of El Internado (The Boarding School) is excellent news because it demonstrates our ability to create successful brands in drama and a job well done over many years. Velvet, Money Heist, Locked Up and, now, The Boarding School have begun a new stage in platforms after their success on Antena 3 ", said Sonia Martínez, Executive Producer of the series and Editorial Director for Atresmedia Studios. "You have to be very proud of this. As producers of El Internado: Las Cumbres we are challenged to live up to the quality and success achieved by El Internado (The Boarding School) in its previous stage. Also, working for Amazon Prime Video - with whom we have more projects at Atresmedia Studios - is always a luxury. We are excited that El Internado: Las Cumbres will have a global reach with Amazon".

The new production, which will begin shooting in the first quarter of 2020 and has not yet confirmed the distribution, will be developed in natural settings in northern Spain.

El Internado: Las Cumbres will join the thousands of series and movies available from the Amazon Prime Video catalog, including original Spanish series such as The Heart of Sergio Ramos, Six Dreams and the upcoming releases of El Cid, Temperance and A Private Matter, as well as the award-winning and globally acclaimed Amazon Original series including Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Fleabag, The Boys, Good Omens, Modern Love, Homecoming and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, all available on Amazon Prime Video, which is included without cost for Amazon Prime members.
