Three days later, both producing companies, Plural Entertainment and Tom Collins Productions, started filming the pilot episode.

On July the 28th, 2011, Mediaset Spain presented on a press conference the remake of Cheers with the future main cast members of the series, among them Alberto San Juan.[1]

The first season was to have 26 episodes, around 30 minutes of length each. It was released on September the 11th, 2011, with a double episode.[2][3][4]

Plot[edit]

Nico (Alberto San Juan) is the owner of an Irish pub named Cheers. He is a former footballer, womanizer, vain and a little bit illiterate who cannot help flirting with any attractive woman he sees in his way. Félix (Antonio Resines) is a psychiatrist, very much analytic and unsure, who is forced to look for alternative jobs. Alexandra Jiménez is Rebeca, a cultured woman who has seen herself forced to work as a waitress after her father went bankrupt.
