In “On the Hunt for Love,” Mortimer tells the story of Linda and Fanny, two friends who want to break the established rules of the ’20s. “Impulsive and maverick, Linda does not stop looking for the perfect romance, while Fanny, more prudent and thoughtful, aspires to a more solid, conventional and realistic relationship. Both are witnesses and protagonists of how their lives take different paths as each seeks ultimate love,” the platform describes.
Filmin arrives on August 3rd the Danish series “Así es mi vida”, full of intrigue and secrets framed in the summer months. “Vitus, 27, is stuck in a routine and usually lost in life until he meets Emma. She is everything he is not. She is optimistic, adventurous and follows her impulses. The two begin to see each other, but Vitus omits the small detail that his ex-girlfriend is pregnant and has decided to keep the baby, against her will. As their relationship evolves, it turns out that Emma keeps a much bigger secret.”
