Disney+ Hotstar has announced a new Latin American thriller series, titled Santa Evita. The show is set to premiere under the Star banner soon in India.
The seven-episode fictional series, based on the best-selling book of the same name written by Argentinian author Tomaacute;s Eloy Martiacute;nez, follows the intriguing tale of Eva Peron’s embalmed body, which remained unburied for three years awaiting the construction of a monument that was never completed. It’s the story of a body with no grave and the legend that was born from it.
In 1955, a military coup in Argentina overthrew then President Juan Domingo Peroacute;n and hid Evita’s body for 16 years to prevent it from becoming a symbol against the regime. Before her death, Eva had become a powerful political figure as General Peroacute;n’s wife, and her wandering unburied corpse haunted the country’s political arena for over two decades. The series features an internationally renowned cast led by Natalia Oreiro, Ernesto Alterio and Diego Velaacute;zquez, with Francesc Orella and Dariacute;o Grandinetti as Juan Domingo Peroacute;n.
