Luis Brandoni has nothing to worry about…
Hulu has released the first trailer for its Spanish-language series Nada, starring the 83-year-old Argentine actor and politician.
The series, referred to as Argentina’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, tells the story of Manuel (Brandoni), a sophisticated culinary critic from Buenos Aires, an art lover and a provocateur whose life up until this point had been managed by his assistant (María Rosa Fugazot).
However, an exceptional event forces him to change his routine and hire Antonia (Majo Cabrera), an inexperienced young woman born and raised in a small town in Paraguay, to tackle the household tasks. The clash of cultures and generations leads to unusual, contradictory and tender situations that result in significant learning experiences for both.
Manuel’s old friend Vincent (Robert De Niro), a renowned New York writer, visits his house. They share many adventures together, including tasting foods, reading, long walks, and existential conversations, all set against the backdrop of the magnificent city of Buenos Aires.
The cast of Nada also includes Silvia Kutika, Enrique Piñeyro, Gastón Cocchiarale, Daniel Miglioranza, Pablo Novak, Belén Chavanne, Alejandro Paker, Rodrigo Noya, Ariadna Asturzzi, Cecilia Dopazo, Manuel Vicente and Daniel Aráoz.
Produced by Metrovisión, Nada is written by Emanuel Diez, Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat, the writers of the hit series El Encargado, currently streaming on Hulu.
The series was created and directed by Cohn and Duprat.
Nada will kick off the Culinary Zinema section at the 71st edition of the festival taking place from September 22 to 30. The Star Original Productions’ new original dramedy is the first Latin American fictional series to be included in this festival’s section.
