Netflix looks to tap into the ever growing Latino market with its first Spanish-language original series.
The 13-episode series will center on a family feud among the heirs of a soccer club after the owner’s death, Variety reported.
Director Gaz Alazraki, who made the Mexican box office hit “We are the Nobles,” is set to helm the project that will shoot entirely in Mexico. It will offer a satirical, highly entertaining look into the world of professional soccer.
“Gaz has the disruptive vision and creative storytelling we were looking for in producing out first original series in Mexico,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer. “We’re confident our members in a market as important to us as Mexico and Latin America will love this family comedy.”
According to Variety, the cast will be from all over Latin America and include “Nobles” star Luis Gerardo Mendez.
