Taking advantage of the fact that this October 21st marks 40 years since the Nobel received the news of his award, Netflix formally announced the "first stone" of his work that for the first time comes to the screens.
"On October 21st, 1982 Gabriel García Márquez received a phone call from Paris in which he was informed of the award of the Nobel Prize in Literature. Today, forty years later, we are honored to inform to Colombia, and the world, the beginning of the construction of the universe in which the series based on the Nobel Prize winner's greatest work, One Hundred Years of Solitude, will be made," announced the platform in an official statement.
The two directors who will lead the first season of the series are Alex García López and Laura Mora. Alex has directed series such as 'The Witcher' and Laura, renowned director of 'Matar a Jesús' and 'Los reyes del mundo', a film that has been selected to represent Colombia at the 2023 Academy Awards.
José Rivera will be the screenwriter of the Gabo series, recognized for films such as 'The Motorcycle Diaries' and 'The 33', along with a Colombian team made up of Natalia Santa, Camila Brugés and Albatros González, with the consultancy of María Camila Arias.
"We begin this long journey today with all the respect and responsibility that it requires of us and all this is only possible because of the trust granted to us by Rodrigo García and Gonzalo García, which we assume with absolute commitment and responsibility to tell the story of Macondo and the Buendía family as conceived by our Nobel Prize winner," wrote Francisco Ramos, vice president of content in Latin America.
'One Hundred Years of Solitude' will be produced by Dynamo, with support from the Colombian Culture Ministry and Proimágenes Colombia.
