Trivia

Being one of the most successful series of the last years in Spain, the show almost got canceled during his first season. It was premiered on Sundays, and the competition crushed it, so the network decided to hold it for two months and moved it into another day. Once they did that, the show started to succeed.

All of them under command of Chief Inspector Montoya (Aitor Luna) . They take on multiple adventures and twisted happenings , such as kidnapping of Lucas's sister (Clara Lago) , dark intervention by C.N.I.

At the same time it deals with a conflict between two lovers , when the starring , Lucas Fernández/Hugo Silva finds himself falling for Sara Miranda/Michelle Jenner who also in love with Aitor Carrasco/Mario Casas .

The series filmed in studios and most part was shot in a study of Madrid with some brief exterior scenes . The cast is pretty well , it has the gallery of characters chosen to connect with the complicity of different sectors of the public . Likable acting by main cast as Paco Tous as tough as well as as botcher police officer , his spouse well played by Adriana Ozores and their daughter compelling performed by Michelle Jenner , subsequently famous for her role in Isabel series . And nice acting by Hugo Silva as dashing undercover agent . Special mention for a group of secondaries playing the freak and underdog policies as Pepon Nieto , Fede Celada , Carlos Santos and Enrique Martínez .
