Talking with Alex De la Iglesia is a blast; he is funny and light as much as his films are dark and intense. This tv series makes no difference but he explains how having more time and more narrative space (and a strong support from the producers and the channel) made all the difference to him.

30 Coins: Welcome to a world where nothing is what it seems and nobody can be trusted. Vergara is an exorcist, boxer and ex-con sent to be a parish priest in a remote village. He wants to forget and be forgotten, but his enemies will soon find him. Strange things happen. A bizarre team of Mayor Paco and Elena, the veterinarian, seek the truth, while reality is distorted by a cursed coin that is at the center of a global conspiracy.
