Netflix produces its first show in Spanish
Rocking a binge TV watcher’s world is kind of Netflix's thing. Despite the fact that it was originally created in 1997 to deliver DVDs to its subscribers, the company shook up the way people consume films and TV series when it launched its streaming service a few years ago. Netflix became even more popular after it started producing its own series, such as “Orange is the new Black” and “House of Cards.”
A few days ago, Netflix wrote yet another “new chapter“ in its history. The streaming company has released its first exclusively Spanish-language series: “Club de Cuervos.”
This show (“Crow Club” in English) tells the story of two siblings who struggle to retain ownership of the soccer club Los Cuervos of Nuevo Toledo after the death of their father (the owner).
“Club de Cuervos” was shot entirely in Mexico, created by Michael Lam and directed by Gaz Alazraki, who previously directed “Nosotros los Nobles.”
The cast is also mostly Latino. Mexican actors Mariana Treviño and Luis Gerardo Mendez play the siblings. But the show also has famous actors like Spanish-born Daniel Giménez Cacho, Peruvian actress Stephanie Cayo and Mexican actor Ianis Guerrero.
The Spanish-language original drama (13 episodes) was released on August 7.
