From The Director And Producers Of Velvet And Gran Hotel, Comes The First Netflix Original Series Shot And Produced In Spain

DIRECTOR CARLOS SEDES AND PRODUCERS RAMÓN CAMPOS AND TERESA FERNÁNDEZ VALDÉS REUNITE FOR NETFLIX

AMSTERDAM, March 31, 2016 -- Netflix, the world's leading Internet television network, announced today that its first original series filmed entirely in Spain, will start production in Madrid in 2016 and debut exclusively on Netflix around the globe in 2017.

The drama is centered upon four women from different backgrounds, hired to be switchboard operators for the country's only telephone company in 1920s Spain. These women have come from all over Spain to work at the forefront of a communication revolution in the middle of Madrid - a place which represents progress and modernity, where jealousy, envy and betrayal get mixed up with a hunger for success, with friendship and love, but, above all, with dreams.

The series is produced by Madrid-based Bambú Producciones, led by Ramón Campos and Teresa Fernández Valdés, producers of the acclaimed Spanish series Gran Hotel and Velvet, and co-created by Gema Neira. The 16 episode first season will begin shooting later this year. Episodes will run 50 minutes.

"It is incredibly exciting to have Netflix in Spain. We are enthusiastic fans of its original series and it is a real honor for us to now be part of this project," said Ramón Campos, co-creator and executive producer of the show. "It is a joy to work with Netflix's extremely talented team, who is revolutionizing the television industry worldwide," added Teresa Fernández Valdés, executive producer of the series.

"We're delighted to be working with Bambú Producciones, director Carlos Sedes and co-creator Gema Neira on our first original series filmed in Spain. We're huge fans of their work on Gran Hotel and Velvet, epic romances that have been embraced by our members around the world," said Erik Barmack, vice president of international original series at Netflix. "We're certain that our members will love this unique and engaging drama created by some of the best storytellers in Spain."
