1 minute read

Netflix announced its first Spanish-language original series on Wednesday. The show will be a soccer comedy from director Gaz Alazraki that follows a feud among family members who inherit a soccer club, Variety reports.

The show is shooting entirely in Mexico but includes a cast that hails from all over Latin Ameria. The 13-episode series is set to premiere in 2015, and will reunite the team that made We Are Nobles, a Mexican box office hit.

“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.”
