Ambitious Spanish-language project Boundless will be released as both a three-part TV series and a separate film, it was confirmed today by producers Fulwell 73, for which this marks its first foray into Spanish content. As previously announced, the show is directed by Simon West and stars Rodrigo Santoro (Westworld) and Álvaro Morte (Money Heist). It will premiere initially on Amazon Prime Video in 2022 before heading to Spanish broadcaster RTVE; the series will be released first, followed by the feature.
