MADRID, Feb. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- ATRESERIES will debut Friday, February 10, its latest fiction showpiece: 'Pulsaciones'.
Produced by Globomedia, 'Pulsaciones' is a thriller starring Pablo Derqui, Leonor Watling, Meritxell Calvo, Ingrid Rubio and Juan Diego Botto and involves an investigation by a neurosurgeon who has just undergone a heart transplant into his donor's mysterious death.
The series runs for ten episodes when the story concludes, allowing viewers to be able to thoroughly learn the outcome of the plots starring Alex, Blanca, Marian and the other leading characters.
An original point of departure for developing the thriller
'Pulsaciones' is a thriller about an investigation by Alex (Pablo Derqui), a neurosurgeon who has just undergone a heart transplant, aimed at solving the mysterious death of his donor, Rodrigo (Juan Diego Botto).
With a highly-detailed production, this story of suspense and love begins with an original premise based on the well-known 'memory of the heart' theory. How would you feel if you started living the memories and experiences of someone you do not know?
This is the strange sensation that Alex starts feeling after his heart transplant. Refusing at the start to accept the controversial theory, the impulses and emotions that this well-known surgeon experiences involuntarily cause him to finally give credibility to this theory of the heart's memory: if Alex wants to stop living these dreams, he must find an explanation for everything surrounding the mysterious death of Rodrigo, an investigative journalist whose heart Alex received.
The only starting point in Alex's investigation will be the clues that he comes upon in the form of memories and dreams following his heart transplant.
In his inquiries, Alex will be accompanied by Lara (Meritxell Calvo), a young journalist who will make every effort to find out what's hiding behind the death of Rodrigo, her professional mentor and one of her best friends.
A thriller that has in its way of narrating another of its strong points and differences, leaving aside more classical formulas. Ten episodes with a conclusion to the story line make up the structure of the new ATRESERIES series.
Alex, who is happily married to Blanca (Leonor Watling), another well-known surgeon, also feels a pressing need to know more about the family that Rodrigo has left behind, mainly Marian (Ingrid Rubio), the donor's widow.
