As seen in the trailer for “La Fortuna,” the series tells the story of an adventurer (Stanley Tucci) that seems to have found a shipwreck and the treasure that was buried with it.

Joining Stanley Tucci in the cast are Clarke Peters, Álvaro Mel, Ana Polvorosa, T’Nia Miller, Karra Elejalde, Manolo Solo, Blanca Portillo, and Pedro Casablanc. The new series is directed by Alejandro Amenábar, marking the first time the Oscar-winning filmmaker has worked on a TV show.

In La Fortuna, Álex Ventura (Mel), a young and inexperienced diplomat, unintentionally becomes the leader of a mission that will put all his convictions to the test: to recover the sunken treasure stolen by Frank Wild (Tucci), an adventurer who travels the world plundering items of common heritage from the depths of the sea. Forming a unique team with Lucía (Polvorosa), a combative public official, and Jonas Pierce (Peters), a brilliant American lawyer with a passion for old pirate tales, Álex sets out on the adventure of a lifetime, on which he learns about the importance of love, friendship and commitment to your own beliefs.
