The latest offering from Filmax's TV production outfit Arca Audiovisual for TV3 is the network’s most successful fiction premiere in ten years
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY, which premiered last January 22nd, became the most-watched programme that day in Catalonia. The Catalan TV channel's new comedy racked up a spectacular average of 777,000 viewers, meaning that more than 10% of the whole population of Catalonia tuned in to watch the series premiere.
With an outstanding 25.8% audience share, it was TV3's most successful premiere in ten years. In the last few weeks, the series produced by the creators of I Know Who You Are and The Red Band Society continued to perform well, proving that they are filmmakers who know how to connect with their audience no matter what genre they are working with.
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY stars Melani Olivares as Angela, a courageous single mom, who's struggling to keep her family's head above water and provide for her three kids, Fran (Nao Albet), David (Leiti Séne) and Sara (Nonna Cardoner). To complicate matters even further, Angela also shares her home with her brother-in-law, Nando (Ivan Massagué).
When some unexpected financial problems put the family house on the line, Angela is forced to ask for help from her father, Eduardo (Simón Andreu), who now has a new wife, Victoria (Yolanda Ramos), mother to Alex (Georgina Amorós). This fractured family is the starting point of the new comedy. As well as its marked black humour, the series also boasts a captivating storyline that is revealed during the first episode and will be the backbone of the series.
