The Commissioner (El Comisario)

Crime drama

The commissioner was one of the first series I shot in Madrid and one of the works where I learned the most. I entered the series when it had already become a classic of spanish television. And after ten years on broadcast, they called a group of new directors (people like Jorge Torregrossa, Eva Lesmes, David Carreras, Koldo Serra or myself) to take charge of the new episodes. And surprisingly, after ten years with few changes, the crew was not tired at all and they had created an great atmosphere, in which technicians and actors worked and had fun with a total complicity. It was an honor to be a part of such a television classic.

San Fernando is a police station, where the commissioner Gerardo Castilla and his agents have to deal with all kinds of criminal investigations.
