Netflix have announced that their latest original series from Mexico, “Monarca”, will begin production this autumn (fall for our American readers) and will launch globally in 2019. The series is based around the wealthy elites in Mexico and the corruption, scandal and violence ingrained in them.
Monarca is a high stakes, multi-generational family saga about a tequila-born Mexican business empire, and the battle that ensues when a member of the family decides to fight the dirty system her family helped create.
Starring Irene Azuela and Juan Manuel Bernal, Monarca is being produced by Ventanarosa, Lemon Studios and Michael McDonald from Stearns Castle. Created by Diego Gutierrez and written by Fernando Rovzar, Julia Denis, Ana Sofia Clerici and Sandra García Velten.
