Service’s first original Spanish-language dramedy to start streaming online in August

Netflix is launching worldwide its first original Spanish-language dramedy, Gaz Alazraki’s “Club de Cuervos” (“Nosostros los Nobles”), on Aug. 7. The streaming service is available in the U.S., Latin America, Mexico, Brazil, Canada and some European territories. It recently announced plans to enter Spain, Portugal and Italy.

The 13-episode series centers on a wealthy family whose members fight over the control of the Los Cuervos soccer club after their patriach dies. “Club de Cuervos” stars Luis Gerardo Mendez and Mariana Trevino.

Another original Netflix Spanish-language series, “Narcos,” is also expected to start streaming this year. The Colombia-set crime thriller about drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and the Medellin cartel is co-helmed by Brazilian director Jose Padilha (“Elite Squad,” “RoboCop”).

“Generations have loved shows like ‘El Chavo,’ and we are confident that they will enjoy recent titles like ‘La Dictadura Perfecta’ as well as the latest addition to our originals slate, ‘Club de Cuervos,’” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix.

In the U.S., the dramedy will complement Netflix’s growing Latino-oriented selection, which includes tele-series, novelas, kid shows, comedies, docus and pics from its partnerships with Univision, UniMas and Telemundo.
