And the fourth in which a countess has been blackmailing the government into giving subsidies to her museum or else she'll movie it out of the country. Because of this, she becomes the team's next target. Other episodes deal with a bus ride, but it's in reality a trap made to discredit him by riding the bus through emblematic corruption locations. To make things worse, someone has put a bomb in there with the intention of killing them both.

Amusing , funny and very cheerful series filled with action-packed , thrills , hilarious set-pieces, tongue in cheek and lots of humor .The premise is simple and plain , as a misfit , botcher team from various Spanish places are called , reunited and trained to undertake hard and secret missions . As they intervine when the Minister of the Treasury becomes a victim of attempted murder after canceling the football league, and Ximo, Berta and Josemari have to sneak in as masseurs of the Spanish selection to find the culprit or when the team has to track down a cyber activist who threatens to release confidential information or when a textile magnate has made a big donation to the team's base; however, it is actually a cover-up to kidnap it. Episode 9 concerns Ximo becomes the first victim of a very dangerous virus and is locked up by Efe to protect his teammates.

Episode 10 deals with general elections, two million votes disappear and it's suspected that one of the parties competing has stolen them to manipulate the results in their favor. The team has to retrieve the missing votes. Episode 11 deals with Julian becomes vice-president in the elections, the new Interior Minister, Teodoro Ibáñez, plans to dissolve the team until a declaration he made during an argument with Carreño worsens Spain's already bad relationship with Venezuela .

This hilarious series delivers a good work , his knack of getting the most out of characters and situations without ever going over the top makes for some very big laughs . This production pays tribute to several films , taking parts here and there , such as Mission Impossible , Men In Black , James Bond films , including multitude of gadgets , and , of course, "Academy Police" movies . The jokes come as thick and fast , hit and miss as usual and it is done in good spirit if not always in good taste . Nice series with accent on sight gags , and humour that stems from the diverting roles established in other movies . The agreeable cast formed by the motley band of misfits gives fun interpretation creating confusion , laughs and mayhem . Support cast is acceptable with a lot of guest stars and brief appearances and comical cameos .

Its origin is the box-office film : Cuerpo de Élite (2016) or Heroes Wanted Cuerpo de élite (original title) . It was professionally directed with enough budget , estimated 4.5000.000 Euros and had success at the Spanish Boxoffice and financed by Atres Media Cine , Kowalski Films and distributor by Netflix .It concerns about a motley group of different Spanish Autonomies are assembled to carry out difficult missions .
