"I really wanted to work with Netflix which comes along with great responsibility as it represents international exposure for the entire team. I am happy to take on this challenge as I will have the opportunity to enjoy the unconditional support and creative freedom needed to tell this great story," said filmmaker Manolo Caro.
"Manolo is the only filmmaker in Mexico to have been a part of the top ten highest grossing movies over the last three consecutive years. His exceptional talent will be reflected on the screen and we are sure he will delight thousands of Netflix members around the world," said Erik Barmack, Netflix vice president of international originals. "The success of Club de Cuervos in Mexico and in other countries reaffirms our bet on Mexican talent and productions like the upcoming Ingobernable, and this new project with Manolo," he concluded.
With 13 episodes, the original series from Netflix will be produced by Rafa Ley and Stacy Perskie from Noc Noc Cinema.
This project will be part of the Netflix Original productions slate filmed in Latin America including Narcos, Club de Cuervos, Ingobernable, 3%, Edha, O Matador and the untitled project from Jose Padilha based on current events in Brazil.
