Tijuana is the second co-production by Fusion Media Group’ Story House and Netflix
01 de febrero de 2018
Tijuana, a new scripted Spanish-language drama series, coproduced by Fusion Media Group and Netflix, is scheduled to start production next month and will air in the U.S. on Univision Network and debut globally on Netflix.
When the presidential front-runner is shot in the street, the reporters of Tijuana Weekly race to cover the story, but the facts they uncover run much deeper than the assassination. An insidious corruption has been allowed to grow in the shadows, and these reporters will risk their lives to bring it to light. Daniel Posada (El Chapo) will serve as a showrunner along with the series creator Zayre Ferrer. Tijuana will be co-produced by FMG Studios’ Story House and Netflix.
In addition to Tijuana, Fusion Media Group and Netflix will co-produce two additional Spanish-language scripted series, as well as two English-language docuseries in partnership with the Fusion TV network.
El Chapo was the first co-production between Netflix and FMG Studios’ Story House. Season two helped make Univision the home of U.S. Hispanic viewers on Sunday nights this fall, and it recently debuted globally on Netflix.
“Tijuana matters because this is a critical time to be talking about what journalists around the world face every day in the pursuit of the truth, particularly in Mexico. This expansion of our relationship with Netflix re-affirms the value of the content we’re producing. We will be increasing investment in production and expect to have nearly 200+ hours of programming by 2020 across scripted and unscripted in English and Spanish. We’ll continue to bet on up and coming creators that truly represent a broad spectrum of stories, characters, and experiences, with a particular eye on female and multicultural showrunners, writers and directors,” said Camila Jiménez Villa, president, and CEO of FMG Studios.
