NETFLIX CONFIRMS A NEW MEXICAN ORIGINAL SERIES CREATED AND DIRECTED BY MANOLO CARO

Beverly Hills, Calif.- Netflix, the world's leading Internet television network, confirmed that filming of a new original series created and directed by acclaimed filmmaker, Manolo Caro (Tales of an inmoral couple, Elvira I'll Give You My Life But I'm Using It, Love of My Loves, I Don't Know Whether to Slit My Veins or Leave Them Long) will begin in Mexico early 2017. The untitled Manolo Caro project will be available across all 190 Netflix territories.

The half-hour dark comedy, which will be filmed in 4K, revolves around a seemingly successful and idyllic family-run flower business full of dysfunctional secrets. One day, the patriarch finds out his longtime mistress has suddenly passed away and he decides to bring their children into the household alongside his current wife and family who didn't know they existed. The series explores the need to protect and forgive loved ones, no matter how uncomfortable.

"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.
