Las Encinas is the best and most exclusive school in Spain, where the elite send their children to study. It’s also where three working class kids have just been admitted after their academy was collapsed and the local council divvied up the students between other schools in the area. They thought that they’d lucked out… but maybe they weren’t so lucky after all.
Elite is a Netflix Original series and is written by Carlos Montero (The Time in Between and creator of Physical or Chemical) and Darío Madrona (Génesis, La chica de ayer and co-creator of the very successful The Protected).
