TVE Presents Its New Grand Production: "Prim, el asesinato de la calle del Turco"

 

This TV movie is a political and historical thriller that focuses on the assassination of General Prim in 1870. This assassination continues to be shrouded in mystery to this day, having never been resolved. Directed by Miguel Bardem and based on a script by Nacho Faerna and Virginia Yagüe, it will be premièred to mark the 200th Anniversary of General Prim's birth.

On 27th December 1870, General Juan Prim y Prats, the Head of the Spanish Cabinet and Minister of War at the time, was shot down on Calle del Turco in Madrid (today, Calle del Marqués de Cubas), near to Spain's Parliament building. He was certified dead three days later.

Some 150 years later, the events surrounding the assassination are still shrouded in mystery, with no clear culprit ever having been identified. The murder has inspired a considerable degree of interest amongst historians, as witnessed by the recent exhumation and autopsy of Prim's body.
