Shooting of ‘If only’ begins in Paris
Megan Montaner, Miquel Fernández and Michel Noher lead the cast of the new Netflix series created by Ece Yörenç with the support of Ay Yapim and adapted by Irma Correa.
Netflix has announced the start of shooting for ‘If Only’, its new series created by Turkish screenwriter Ece Yörenç, author of series such as ‘Fatmagül’, ‘Forbidden’, ‘Forbidden Love’, ‘Sühan: Revenge and Love’, ‘Kuzey Güney’ and ‘Medcezir’ with the support of Ay Yapim. Irma Correa (‘Alba’) has been leading the adaptation of this romantic story about second chances.
Megan Montaner (’30 Coins’, ‘The hunt’, ‘Monteperdido’) plays the role of Emma, a woman who is disillusioned with her day-to-day existence and who, by a stroke of fate, will be able to change her life and start over. Miquel Fernández (‘Alba’, ‘The Knot’) plays her husband Nando and Michel Noher (‘The Unit’, ‘100 Days to Fall in Love’) plays Rubén, whom Emma will meet in her new life. The cast is completed by Jael Pascual (’45 Revolutions’), Eduardo Lloveras (‘The One’) and Bore Buika (‘Élite’), among others.
Produced by Boomerang for Netflix, this new series will be directed by Liliana Bocanegra (‘The Queen of Flow’) and Alejandro Bazzano (‘The Money Heist’,’Ines of my Soul’) and will be shot in natural locations in Seville, Madrid and Paris
Ece Yörenc, creator of the series, says: “Many of my productions (‘Forbidden Love’, ‘Sühan: Revenge and Love’, ‘Fatmagül’, ‘Kuzey Güney’, ‘Medcezir’) have been broadcast in Spain, ‘Fatmagül’ was even adapted in Spanish, but none of them have made me as excited as ‘If Only’, since it is the first time that a script of mine comes to life as an original in another country, I am very excited. ‘If Only’ is an entertaining yet emotional story at the same time. The main character is a woman who has felt trapped in her marriage for 10 years and is now trying to find herself. It is a story that happens in real life and that I recommend watching more than once in order to find all the details that are hidden in each of the 8 episodes. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did creating it”.
Irma Correa, showrunner of the series, says: “Who wouldn’t want to travel to the past, to have the opportunity to change what would turn our present into what we had always dreamed of. ‘If Only’ is Emma’s journey to herself, it is a series that talks about dreams, hopes, the meaning of our life, family, friends, love, and inevitable destiny. Starting the shooting of this project is a dream come true, as I can find no better way to travel through time than through her eyes.”
