Netflix will open an office in Bogota, Colombia, this year and unveil more than 30 new projects through 2022 as part of a $175m investment the streamer revealed it committed to in 2014.
Since launching in the Latin American country 10 years ago, Netflix has made local series such as Siempre Bruja, Distrito Salvaje, Chichipatos, Frontera Verde and El Robo del Siglo, and films like Lavaperros.
“[B]ut our story in Colombia is only starting,” the streamer said in a blog.
The new hub will, it said, “allow us to be even closer to the creative community and our members, taking Colombian stories to millions of homes around the world so that they can discover the incredible potential, talent, landscapes and culture of this country”.
The more than 30 new projects between now and 2022 include previously announced Ritmo Salvaje, Locombianos, Juanpis, Nada Es Igual, Goles en Contra, Pálpito, Perfil Falso, Diomedes and Chichipatos Season 2.
