"And in addition to delighting local audiences, we're thrilled to be able to bring the work of these talented local writers, directors, producers and actors behind each series to an international audience of more than 100 million Prime members worldwide."

New Amazon Original series announced today include:

Iosi, El Espía Arrepentido

This hour-long, eight episode scripted series based on real life events follows the story of a young Argentinean intelligence agent on a mission of redemption after he infiltrates the Jewish community for several years to gather information that is then allegedly used to perpetrate two of the worst terrorist attacks in Latin American history, leaving over 100 dead. Produced by Oficina Burman, a company of The Mediapro Studio, Iosi, El Espia Arrepentido comes from an award-winning production team led by Daniel Burman as series' creator and showrunner. Sebastián Borensztein is serving as director and the head writer, and Burman will also direct some episodes.

La Jauría

La Jauría tells the story of a disappearance of a young girl in a Catholic school who stages a protest and unwittingly becomes the center of a police investigation that exposes a deadly online game which recruits men to commit acts of aggression toward women, brought to light when a video of her own assault goes viral after she vanishes. The nearly hour-long, eight episode series stars Daniela Vega (A Fantasic Woman) and Antonia Zegers (Fugitivos), along with Mariana Digirolamo (Ema, Pituca sin Lucas), Antonia Giesen (Ema, Inés del alma mía) and Paula Luchsinger (Ema, Tranquilo Papá). The series is directed by the acclaimed Lucía Puenzo, and produced by Fabula (A Fantasic Woman, El Presidente) and Fremantle (The Young Pope, American Gods).

Colonia Dignidad

Colonia Dignidad is a docuseries that explores the hidden truths behind the isolated colony of Germans and Chileans established in post-World War II Chile by infamous Nazi cult leader Paul Schäfer, and became known for torture, murder and extreme medical experiments. The series is a timely, intimate look into the lives of the settlers who lived through years of psychological, physical and sexual abuse and who today stand divided in a battle for the land that was once their home. The limited series comes from the critically acclaimed producer Diego Guebel (Caiga Quien Caiga) from Boxfish TV.

Noticia De Un Secuestro

Inspired by real life events, Noticia De Un Secuestro is a six episode, hour-long limited series based on the bestselling non-fiction book of the same name by legendary writer Gabriel García Márquez, which tells the thrilling and suspenseful story about the ordeals of a small group of individuals kidnapped in 1990 by Colombian drug lords, and the extraordinary efforts of their loved ones to free them. Produced by Invercine & Wood, the series is executive produced by García Márquez's own son, renowned screenwriter and director Rodrigo García, María Elena Wood (Dignity, Mary & Mike, Ramona) along with Lourdes Díaz and Stuart Ford from US independent content studio AGC Television, part of Ford's AGC Studios. The acclaimed Andres Wood is set to direct.
