‘Lucio’s Treasure,’ Red Arrow Vertice360



Spanish star Miguel Ángel Silvestre (“Los enviados,” “Sense8,” “Narcos”) is set to topline in miniseries “Lucio’s Treasure,” a real-life inspired project co-produced by Spain’s Vértice360 and Friki Films with Red Arrow International Studios.

Silvestre will play the leading role of Lucio Urtubia, considered a modern Robin Hood who nearly bankrupted Citibank of America in the 1980s. Whether he was caught is another matter.

Structured as a six-episode, one-hour drama, the series is scheduled to lens in English by 2025.

Created by brothers Hugo and Roger Menduiña, “Lucio’s Treasure” is produced by Friki’s CEO Ana Manresa and Alberto Rull, Vertice’s EVP production and content.

The U.K.’s Anthony Alleyne (“Sunburn”) has joined the series as co-creator, writer and executive co-producer.

Defined by Rull as “an ambitious series, both creatively and in terms of budget,” “Lucio’s Treasure” is set in Paris and New York, “aimed at being a world-class co-production with large appeal to global audiences.”

Red Arrow International Studios is co-producing and also managing international sales on the project.

The miniseries has been selected for the upcoming edition of MIA’s drama co-production market and pitching forum, which takes place in Rome Oct. 9-13. 

The story follows Lucio, an apparently modest Spanish bricklayer living in Paris, hiding the brains behind the largest network of traveller’s check counterfeiters that led Citibank down a path towards ruin.

Silvestre’s acting career lifted-off in 2008, playing the role of masculine drug dealer Rafael Duque in Telecinco’s popular Spanish TV primetime series “Sin tetas no hay paraíso.” 

In 2013 he toplined Atresmedia-Bambú hit melodrama “Velvet” and played in Pedro Almodóvar’s musical comedy “I’m So Excited.”

Silvestre broke out with international roles in 2014, first playing in Lana Wachowski’s Netflix series “Sense8” and then joining the “Narcos” Season 3 cast in 2016.

In 2019, he played a far different role, the Death Row-sentenced Pablo Ibar in Bambú-Movistar Plus+ miniseries “En el corredor de la muerte.” He also worked in Álex de la Iglesia’s HBO series “30 monedas.” 

After starring in Álex Pina’s action thriller series “Sky Rojo,” he joined the fifth part of Netflix flagship drama “Money Heist.” 

Silvestre’s recent leading work take in Paramount+ original series “Los enviados,” the platform’s biggest Spanish-language hit to date, created by Argentine Oscar-winning writer-director Juan José Campanella.
