The spin-off Berlin – by Money Heist creator Álex Pina and his Sky Rojo collaborator, Esther Martínez Lobato — is centered around the character Berlin (Pedro Alonso), long before he finds out about his terminal diagnosis and takes the Royal Mint of Spain hostage. During his glory days, Berlin and a masterful gang gather in Paris for one of his greatest plans ever: to steal 44 million euros in jewels in one night.
In Money Heist, a group of strangers (all nicknamed after cities) band together to rob the Royal Mint of Spain with a plan created by the Professor (Álvaro Morte) and executed by Berlin. BERLIN focuses on an earlier period in Berlin’s life, which is touched upon in flashbacks in the later seasons of Money Heist.
Berlin says there are only two things that can turn a bad day into a great one: love and a million-dollar payday. This is what keeps him razor-focused on his lofty goals. So he’s preparing one of his most extreme heists yet — disappearing $44 million worth of jewels. But first, he’ll need to enlist the help of some savvy criminals: Keila, a cybersecurity mastermind; Damián, an academic and Berlin’s close friend; Cameron, a loose cannon who lives life on the edge; Roi, a locksmith, and Berlin’s faithful sidekick; and Bruce, who’s fluent in gadgets and weaponry.
