Belén Cuesta will be the protagonist along with Jaime Lorente of Cristo y Rey, the series created by Daniel Écija that will revive, four decades later, the relationship of the best tamer in the world, Ángel Cristo, with the actress and muse of uncovering, Bárbara Rey , in a plot that will cover his most mediatic years.

Antena 3 today announced the start of filming by sharing the first image of its protagonists and completing the cast that will include Adriana Torrebejano, Cristobal Suárez, Artur Busquets, José Milán, Chema Adeva, Belén Ponce de León, Vicente Vergara, Diana Peñalver, Salomé Jiménez, David Lorente and Secun de la Rosa, among others.

Montse García and Daniel Écija are the executive producers of this new fiction from the Series Atresmedia label that promises to show us the day-to-day life of Ángel Cristo and Bárbara Rey and how they marked the media agenda of Spanish society during the last decades of the 20th century. Every step they took was news. Together they formed the most popular couple of the moment, after a fleeting courtship that in a few weeks materialized in a marriage full of lights and shadows.

“Madrid, 1979. Ángel Cristo is the best tamer in the world. Bárbara Rey, actress and muse of uncovering, the most desired woman in Spain,” highlights the official synopsis. “From the time they meet until they announce their marriage, only a few weeks go by. It is the wedding of the year and the news covers the covers of all the magazines. The Circus of Bárbara Rey and Ángel Cristo becomes the fashion show; a millionaire business Money, fame, luxury… Nine years of relationship in which Spain witnessed the happiness of the couple: the birth of Angelito and Sofía, the purchase of sports cars, jewelry, an ostentatious villa in La Moraleja… Far from the flashes , however, hides an escalation of drug addiction, gambling, infidelity and abuse… And, in the background, the shadow of Bárbara’s relationship with a powerful statesman”.

“It will be a fantasy. We are doing a very deep investigation, but sweetening what that reality was so that it is appealing”, the actor told us, “the vital moment in which they find themselves when they meet and what happens when they get together. There is an interesting journey there.”

Ángel is a charismatic and overwhelming man. He has the circus in his veins. And facing his beast in each function is what gives him life. A tireless worker, he has managed to become the best tamer in the world.

Bárbara Rey is a desired, media and controversial woman in the 70s and 80s, not only for being an actress and muse of uncovering, but for her airy relationships with important men of culture, politics and sports with whom she has felt used.

When she meets Ángel Cristo, she finds a sincere love. As much as to abandon her career and be able to fulfill her greatest dream: to be a mother. Nine years of marriage in which Spain is witness to her happiness. Far from the flashes, however, she suffers from a hell of mistreatment and abuse.

Cristo y Rey will be the new original series from Atresmedia TV for prime time on Antena 3 and will also be available on ATRESplayer PREMIUM. It is an Atresmedia TV production in collaboration with Good Mood. It is currently still in the casting phase and will begin recording in the coming months.
