History[edit]

On May 28, 2018, Mediaset Spain and Netflix announced they had reached an agreement to produce their first series together, with Warner Bros. ITVP Spain as co-producer. The names of the main cast of the series were also confirmed, including Hugo Silva, Álvaro Cervantes, Miki Esparbé, Jesús Castro, and Sara Sálamo.[3] Recording began on June 7 in Málaga Province and concluded in early February 2019.[4] Brigada Costa del Sol was one of the only Spanish series to be selected for the MIPDrama MIPTV 2019 event.[5]

The first season became available worldwide in its entirety on Netflix on October 25, 2019.[6]

Plot[edit]

In 1977, a group of police detectives with limited resources, but a lot of ingenuity and courage, is picked to form a special drug-fighting brigade in Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol. The series is based on the true story of the Grupo Especial de Estupefacientes Costa del Sol, one of Spain's first anti-narcotics squads.[6]
