Nochegüena News (Christmas Eve News)
YLLANA directed this programme produced by ZETA AUDIOVISUAL and starring Josema Yuste, in collaboration with famous actors such as Santiago Segura, Felisuco, Antonio Pagudo or Marta Belenguer.
Like “España en Directo”, Nochegüena News offers a parody of this type of format. The comic actor Josema Yuste is the presenter of an odd news programme, where some journalists experience a particular Christmas Eve. While introducing live reports, Yuste tries to have dinner “live” with the TV users of La 1, which complicates the development of the programme.
Nochegüena News tells about the problems of an unusual Spanish family when preparing the Christmas dinner, the effects of the crisis affecting St Peter’s management in Heaven, and how the famous chef Adrián Ferranz prepares spectaculars novelle cuisine dishes for some very particular beggars. Unemployment, new technologies and the world of hip hop are other key issues of the sketches, together with parodies of popular advertisements and TV programmes.
The programme was broadcast on Christmas Eve 2011 getting a 22% share (6 points ahead of T5 and 11 points ahead of A3). It was the most-watched programme of its time slot.
