Targeting the Latino community within the US, the streaming service has greenlighted dramedy Gentefied, an adaptation of the web series of the same name. The show will feature both English and Spanish dialogue. 

Latino-oriented content on Netflix is on the rise. After introducing global audiences to successful Spanish-language shows like Money Heist and Narcos, the streamer continues expanding its library of Spanish-speaking originals after having comissioned the bilingual dramedy Gentefied.

The show is based on the web series of the same name created by Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez, which explores some of the problems US-based Latinos must face through the story of three cousins of Mexican descent who were raised in Los Angeles.

As they struggle to make the American dream come true, the protagonists must deal with issues like identity, culture, social class, the digital world and gentrification, which pushes them to the outskirts of the city.

The web series adaptation will feature new characters without losing the bilingual component, with Spanish and English dialogue in order to depict the reality of US-based Latinos more accurately.

The project, which garnered recognition with its participation in the 2017 Sundance Film Festival as a web series, will keep its original creators as writers and executive producers of its initial 10-episode run.  

Netflix got on board as a studio and first release window, while actress America Ferrera and Teri Weinberg will executive produce through their production outfit. Monica Macer will serve as showrunner.
