Netflix to Create Its First Spanish-Language Original Series

Netflix has announced its first Spanish-language original series, a soccer comedy from director Gaz Alazraki that reunites the team that made Mexican box office hit “We Are the Nobles.”

The 13-episode series from Alazraki Entertainment is set to premiere in 2015 and centers on a family feud among heirs of a soccer club after the owner’s death.

Shooting entirely in Mexico and featuring a cast from all over Latin America, including “Nobles” star Luis Gerardo Mendez, the series offers a satirical, highly entertaining look into the world of professional futbol (or soccer as it is known in U.S.).

“Gaz has the disruptive vision and creative storytelling we were looking for in producing our first original series in Mexico,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix 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.”

Produced by Alazraki, Leo Zimbron and Mike Lam, the story was created by Mike Lam and will be directed by Alazraki.
