Netflix is developing five new Spanish Original series that will launch on the streaming service from 2020. The new slate of Originals includes a school-based drama by the co-creator of hit Netflix series Elite, an anime series and a superhero comedy.
El Desorden que Deja
Carlos Montero, co-creator of Elite, will write and direct this series based on his own award-winning novel published by Planeta. The eight-episode psychological thriller turns on a young literature teacher who is trying to save her marriage but gets embroiled in a mystery involving her predecessor who committed suicide, possibly after being bullied by her own students.
This 10-episode comedy series directed by Nacho Vigalondo (“Colossal”) tells the story of a down-and-out man whose love life and unemployment woes are not improved by the superpowers a dying alien grants him — until his neighbour helps him learn to hide his powers and use them for good.
Dias de Navidad
The three-episode miniseries follows four sisters over different key moments of their lives, revealing family secrets and dynamics through the lens of time.
This eight-episode female-centered tale is about a writer who, struggling with both her craft and an emotionally distant husband, finds solace in her three best friends. Based on the novels by popular writer and blogger Elisabet Benavent.
Memorias de Idhun
This five-episode anime series is based on the trilogy of the same name by Laura Gallego, who co-wrote the script with Andres Carrion. It is a fantasy tale of kingdoms battling for supremacy despite a prophecy that their fates will forever be intertwined.
