“At Weekend Studio we are very proud that our first project is a Netflix original series. Our company is committed to a global perspective and with Netflix this objective is guaranteed. We are confident that this is the first step towards a long and successful collaboration.”
And Erik Barmack, Vice President of International Originals at Netflix, said:
“We are big fans of Javier and Adriana’s work, and couldn’t be more excited to see them both in a Netflix Original series. And the world that Verónica, Tomás and Jorge have created is unique, fresh, and likely to have global appeal. We’re ready to add Hache to our growing list of Spanish series intended for global audiences.”
