Together, the women embark on a frantic, chaotic journey during which they must face dangers of all kinds and live every second as if it were their last, while strengthening their friendship and discovering the most important thing: that together they are stronger and have more options to recover their lives.
Here’s is what the creators Álex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato told about Sky Rojo
In a conversation with Spanish outlet Vertele!, Pina said that the series is more complex than other shows they’ve done. It focuses on the exploitation and escape of the three women forced to work as strippers.
