Madrid, Spain - February 6th -- Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, continues its investment in Spanish content. Francisco Ramos, Vice President Original Series, announced the development and production of five new Spanish projects launching on Netflix from 2020. All titles will be available in over 190 countries for the 139 million subscribers Netflix has around the world.

The five new shows cover a variety of genres and formats that will offer consumers a diverse and exciting choice of content, including, a down-to-earth superhero comedy in El vecino, a extraordinary gripping drama in El desorden que dejas, a superbly casted female mini-series in Días de Navidad, an anime adaptation of the best-selling novel in Memorias de Idhun, and a beautifully written female dramedy in Valeria.

"At Netflix, we want to produce local stories with a global appeal and Spain has constantly generated amazing television both for Spain and the world. This new crop of projects, all different from each other and with very strong and top of the class story-tellers, will create narratives that will resonate with viewers everywhere" explained Francisco Ramos.

In addition to all of these new productions that are currently in different development stages, Netflix is also in production on the new seasons for Las chicas del cable, Elite and La casa de papel, and the new shows Hache, Alta Mar and Criminal, which adds further diversity to the slate having all German, English, French and Spanish episodes shot at the production hub in Madrid. In regards to cinema, family animated movie Klaus from Sergio Pablos is currently being produced at SPA studios in Madrid, and movies such Diecisiete and Hogar are now in postproducción getting ready for a 2019 and 2020 launch.

Francisco Ramos concludes: "The five new series we are now announcing are an extraordinary addition to our existing slate. This is a meaningful investment in the Spanish market and we are looking forward to continue expanding, not only with series but also movies, documentaries, unscripted, and to heavily support the vision of the amazing voices that offer unique stories and premium quality entertainment to our close to 140 million members, in Spain and across the world."

Projects in detail:

El Vecino

Javier's life is not going well. He can barely make end of month with a temporary job, his t-shirt business with discouraging quotes doesn't quite take off and his relationship with Lola has been having problems in the last couple of months.

Turns out that the super powers are useless when you get fired from your job or when your girlfriend decides she wants to take a break. Fortunately he has his friend José Ramón, his neighbor, that will teach him to use his powers for good and hide his secret identity, specially from Lola who has decided to turn her mediocre journalism career and investigate Titan, the mysterious superhero.
