Market leader Netflix kickstarted the trend with Gaz Alazraki’s Mexican family dramedy series “Club de Cuervos” and Colombian-set drama series “Narcos,” as well as the upcoming Brazilian futuristic drama series “3%” from Boutique Films and “City of God” cinematographer Cesar Charlone.
“These original productions mark our keen interest to generate alternative quality content for Latin American audiences, and at the same time open new opportunities for the development of talent in our region,” said Andres Vazquez del Mercado, chief content officer of America Movil Contenidos.“Narcos” chronicles the gripping real-life stories of the drug kingpins of the late 1980s and the corroborative efforts of law enforcement to meet them head on in brutal, bloody conflict.It details the conflicting forces – legal, political, police, military and civilian – that clash in an effort to control the world’s most powerful commodity: cocaine.Every step, every process that I’ve been through the movie always has been very inspiring to me. MANOLO CARDONA Rusco is the real name of the dog that plays Papi. And then, if I was going to take a dog, I would want El Diablo, the big bad guy, the Doberman. And there’s so many talented, incredible actors that I’m a fan of just personally, like Andy Garcia, Luis Guzmán, that I’m dying to meet.I realized what I’ve been doing, like, a Disney movie and my first American movie and this great story with all this great cast and it’s a beautiful script and I was like, “Wow. PIPER PERABO You have to call, if you want him, you have to call Rusco. PIPER PERABO Well, I live in New York, so it would be nice to have such a big dog, but I also think they’re beautiful and so graceful and elegant.
