Netflix has announced an exclusive development deal with producer and writer Alex Pina, the creator of its most watched non-English show, La Casa de Papel (Money Heist).
Under the terms of the deal, Pina, founder of production company Vancouver Media and also the creative powerhouse behind emblematic series such as ‘Locked up – Vis a Vis’, ‘The Ship – El Barco’ or ‘Paco’s Men – Los hombres de Paco’, will produce new series and projects exclusively for Netflix’s 125 million members around the world.
Erik Barmack, Vice President, International Originals, Netflix said: “We are thrilled to announce our overall deal with Alex Pina and to be working with such a talented creator and production team.
“We have full confidence that Alex will continue to break boundaries with his unique vision and storytelling capturing audiences worldwide.”
Álex Pina added: “Working alongside Netflix is a dream come true. We are living in a moment where series are becoming one of the most relevant cultural movements ever.
The possibility of reaching the last corner on the planet and building a world where content of all languages can travel globally, is to be part of the dream of thousands of creatives from around the world; productions coming from small places in the world that today can reach everyone. We had to be there, beside Netflix, as part of this revolutionary challenge.”
Part 3 of La Casa de Papel is slated for release in 2019 and Sky Rojo, a female-action drama that is set to start production in 2019, is currently in development.
