Trailer Touchdown: El Presidente: Enter the Corrupt World of FIFA with Amazon’s New Original
The trailer for Amazon Prime Video’s new show ‘El Presidente’ (The President) was dropped on 13 May 2020 and we are excited.
The Spanish show takes place in the middle of ‘FIFAgate,’ a scandal years in the making that finally came to light in 2015. Sergio Jadue was the president of a small Chilean football club who orchestrated his team’s rise with corruption valued at over $150 million after he became the President of the Chilean Football Association in 2011. In 2015, the Chilean football team won the Copa America tournament. The scandal was discovered soon after.
In this eight-episode series, Andres Parra will be seen as Sergio Jadue, alongside Karla Souza (of How to Get Away with Murder fame). Argentine screenwriter Armando Bo, who has written films like Biutiful and Birdman, will be writing and directing the series.
El Presidente is all set to have its worldwide premiere on June 5.
