1969-“Estirpe”, was the first Spanish graphic novel by a troubled youngster under a pseudonym. He mysteriously disappeared after that. 44 years later, a production company that wanted to adapt it to the big screen hired María, a young lawyer to find the author and get the rights from him.
Humor shapes the way Spaniards interact on Twitter: all sorts of topics can be used to make a joke and many anonymous commentators can become celebrities and compete with professional comedians.

A pathologically enthusiastic couple, with a weak spot for wine, decides to fly to Seattle to realize their dreams: she dreams of strengthening her leadership abilities in an exclusive corporate coaching seminar, Body Language Empowerment in One Week, while he dreams of getting as close as humanly possible to the tomb of the greatest fighter of all times. Upon arrival in Seattle, a sagacious mobster teaches them that it takes more than just a map to find Bruce's tomb, and something more than just a body to master the art of interpersonal communication. Will their relationship survive the mobster's grueling training? Will they be able to channel their enthusiasm towards a common dream? Seattle is a puzzle: will they find a frame pretty enough to hang it on the wall when it's all over?

La Hora Chanante is a Spanish comedy television show aired through the cable/satellite local version of the Paramount Comedy channel. Each episode is a half hour long and consists of a series of unrelated sketches and a story featuring some celebrity which helps keep continuity throughout the program. Episodes used to be released on a monthly basis until 2006, when the show was discontinued. However, reruns are aired frequently through Paramount Comedy as well as Localia, and in December 2007, Paramount Comedy Spain and Universal Pictures launched a pack of two DVDs with the best moments of "La Hora Chanante" and some extras, an unreleased, deleted scenes, stickers and a comic drawn by Joaquín Reyes.
It was created and directed by comedian from Albacete Joaquín Reyes, who also played the celebrities portrayed in each episode, thus serving as a show host. Many of the show's cutscenes were drawn by Lalo Kubala and Carlos Areces, both known for their work in the Spanish satire magazine El Jueves.
The staff responsible for La Hora Chanante started in September 2007 a new show with a similar format in the public channel La 2, called Muchachada Nui.
