The 13-episode comedy series from director Gaz Alazraki and creator Mike Lam is set in the world of professional futbol. The untitled project, slated to premiere in 2015 on Netflix, centers on a family feud among heirs of a soccer club after the owner’s death. Luis Gerardo Mendez stars in the series, which will be shot entirely in Mexico and feature a cast from throughout Latin America. The project reunites Alazraki and Mendez, who worked on the Mexican box office hit Nosotros los Nobles (We Are The Nobles). Mendez starred in the pic and Alazraki directed.
“We formed a very special team for We Are The Nobles, and we all knew we wanted to keep working together,” said Alazraki. “When I told the team that Netflix was interested in producing the show, the excitement was contagious since there’s nobody cooler and more innovative in this day and age than Netflix.”
Alazki directs and produces the series, with Leo Zimbron and Lam also producing.
