Last night, Apple TV+ held the global premiere event for “Now & Then,” the highly anticipated bilingual thriller series, at the Cinemex Antara in Mexico City.
Set in Miami and shot in both English and Spanish, “Now & Then” is a multi-layered thriller that explores the differences between youthful aspirations and the reality of adulthood, when the lives of a group of college best friends are forever changed after a celebratory weekend ends up with one of them dead. Now, 20 years later, the remaining five are reluctantly reunited by a threat that puts their seemingly perfect worlds at risk.
The series hails from Bambú Producciones and creators Ramón Campos and Gema R. Neira. Campos serves as showrunner, and the series is written by Neira and Campos with their team. Teresa Fernández Valdés and Gideon Raff are executive producers of the show, and Raff also directs.
“Now & Then” joins a growing number of Apple Originals from award-winning global storytellers, including the recently premiered and broadly acclaimed series “Slow Horses,” an international espionage thriller starring Academy Award winner Gary Oldman; “Pachinko,” based on the acclaimed novel, and written and executive produced by Soo Hugh; and recently renewed hit comedy “Acapulco,” starring and executive produced by Eugenio Derbez.
It will also premiere alongside upcoming series including “Echo 3,” a new action-thriller set between South America and the US, and written by Academy Award-winning producer and writer Mark Boal; new stories from the multi-Academy Award and BAFTA Award-winning director, writer, producer, cinematographer and editor Alfonso Cuarón, who currently has an overall deal to develop television projects exclusively for Apple TV+ through his production company Esperanto Filmoj; and “Midnight Family,” a star-studded Spanish language medical drama from Gibrán Portela and Julio Rojas, and executive produced by Pablo Larraín and Juan de Dios Larraín.
