Cable Girls (Las Chicas del Cable)

In 1928 a modern telecommunications company begins to operate in Madrid. The series tells of how the lives of four young women change after they start working for this company, which offers them decent pay and some independence.

Each woman has a different reason for joining the company. Alba Romero, who goes by the name Lidia Aguilar to conceal her identity, seeks a job at the telecommunications company to complete a mission.

Ángeles Vidal is a young mother who works to help provide for her family and is the most experienced switchboard operator at the telecommunications company. Carlota Senillosa wants a job at the telecommunications company to escape her controlling father and her rigid high society life, and Marga Suarez joins the company to start a new chapter of her life.

The four women begin to form a close friendship, and together they navigate their sentimental lives and their work. The show reveals the hardships that working women faced in 1920s Spain and especially the severe restrictions on the rights of Spanish women in a male-dominated society.

Following the death of their father, sisters Eva and Carolina Villanueva travel on the ocean liner, Bárbara de Braganza (formerly Covadonga), en route from Spain to Brazil in the late 1940s. They become embroiled in investigating mysterious on-board deaths, a secret microfilm, and hidden Nazi gold. The series starts with a mysterious woman called Luisa asking for help from the sisters, who smuggle her on board.

Complications continue as the sisters must choose who to believe – their father or their uncle – concerning the sending of people to concentration camps in trucks belonging to the family business.

The House of Flowers (La Casa De Las Flores)

A wealthy matriarch tries to maintain her family’s facade of perfection after her husband’s mistress exposes their dirty secrets.

It depicts a dysfunctional upper-class Mexican family that owns a prestigious floristry shop and a struggling cabaret, both called ‘The House of Flowers’

It contains several LGBT+ main characters, with plots that look at homophobia and transphobia. Seen as satirizing the telenovela genre that it maintains elements of, it also subverts stereotypical presentations of race, class, sexuality, and morality in Mexico. Its genre has been described as a new creation, the “millennial telenovela”, a label supported by Manolo Caro.
