New Netflix Drama White Lines Drops Globally This Friday
There's a new Netflix drama from the creator of Money Heist coming your way this Friday (15 May), which promises a thrilling murder mystery set against the crystal blue waters and strobe lights of Spanish party hotspot Ibiza.
White Lines comes from writer Álex Pina, who you might recognise as the mastermind behind La Casa de Papel (Money Heist), which has been running since 2017.
Starring Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers: The Last Knight), Marta Milans (Shazam, The Pier), Juan Diego Botto (Good Behavior), Nuno Lopes (Saint George, Lines of Wellington), Daniel Mays (Line of Duty, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Laurence Fox (Victoria, Lewis) and Angela Griffin (Turn Up Charlie, The Detail), the 10-part series follows a woman called Zoe (Haddock) as she returns to Ibiza to investigate the mysterious death of her brother, who went missing on the island some two decades before.
Netflix said of the series: "From the teams that brought you La Casa de Papel (writer) and The Crown (production company) comes White Lines.
"The body of a legendary Manchester DJ is discovered twenty years after his mysterious disappearance from Ibiza. When his sister returns to the beautiful Spanish island to find out what happened, her investigation leads her through a thrilling world of dance clubs, lies and cover-ups, forcing her to confront the darker sides of her own character in a place where people live life on the edge."

Filmed last summer and autumn in the Balearic Islands, including Ibiza and Majorca, no doubt the beautiful scenery will also serve as a nice bit of escapism for anyone missing their holidays right now - I mean, that's if you ignore the murder aspect, that is.
If you haven't already, you can gear yourself up for the new series by familiarising yourself with Pina's other work - notably Money Heist, which is also available to watch on Netflix.
It tracks a crew of eight criminals as they try to break into the Royal Mint of Spain, and has become the biggest non-English language show on the streaming platform, having also won a whole heap of awards including the Best Drama gong at the International Emmy Awards and at the Premios Fénix, which is a similarly big-time Spanish language TV awards ceremony.
Watch White Lines on Netflix (globally) from Friday 15 May.
