It will be shot between Almería and Lanzarote, which will host the "mansion" of the fictitious Ximénez cartel

Hollywood producer Wanda Halcyon, recently moved to Spain, is already processing permits to shoot part of the new series, “Marked - The Unforgiven” in Lanzarote . The company expects to carry out the filming between January 11th and April 23rd of next year , taking as a setting the island of Conejera and also the coast of Almería.

The series is an adaptation of a novel by George Christie, former president of Hells Angels Ventura and Amazon's best-selling novelist. The story begins with the homecoming of Jack Crest, a former Navy sniper in Afghanistan, who forms a biker club alongside another Vietman-era sniper, Big John. The original 12 members of the club are Marines, Green Berets, Navy Seals and even a captain from the Coast Guard. "The series is a drama that exposes the dichotomy between the members of the club and the people they deal with," explains the producer.

On December 14th, Wanda-Halcyon will hold a press conference to announce two household names who will play Big John's protégé Jack Crest and Big John's mentor Joseph Battaglia , a Chicago mob boss, and they will soon be playing around the island of Lanzarote.

According to Pat Andrew, producer of Wanda-Halcyon Television, the actor who will play Jack Crest has been nominated for the Emmy Awards, an American award that recognizes excellence in the television industry and the actor who will play Joseph Battaglia has been nominated to the Oscar, for his outstanding performances in the film industry.
