Netflix Announces First Spanish-Language Original Series

Netflix is gaining momentum by the day, it seems, and it's not stopping anytime soon: the subscription service is launching its first Spanish-language original series, reports Variety.

The plot will center around a family feud among heirs of a Mexican soccer club, after the owners' death. It will be filmed in Mexico and directed by Gaz Alazraki, featuring the same team from the Mexican hit movie We Are the Nobles.

"We’re thrilled to be working with the talent from We Are the Nobles, a movie that managed to capture a cultural phenomenon in a fun and engaging way, while also breaking box office records," said Ted Sarandos, Netflix's Chief Content Officer. "Gaz has the disruptive vision and creative storytelling we were looking for in producing our first original series in Mexico. We’re confident our members in a market as important to us as Mexico and Latin America will love this family comedy.”

The series is slated to run in 2015 with a 13-episode series. What do you think of this new series?
