Juan Pablo Raba stars in the series
Originally titled Distrito Salvaje, the show will be produced by Dynamo and comes as the third Netflix original in Colombia and the second Dynamo production.
Streaming giant Netflix has announced in the last few hours a new Colombian original, which will become the third original production in the Caribbean country.
Originally titled Distrito Salvaje, the show is created by Cristian Conti and stars Juan Pablo Raba (Narcos). Production Company Dynamo, which has already collaborated with Netflix on Narcos, will produce the show.
In addition, the new series will be the second Colombian original produced by Dynamo, since the production company is also working on the first original in Colombia: an untitled project written by Carlos Contreras (El chapo) and executive produced by Ciro Guerra (El abrazo de la serpiente).
Teen drama Siempre Bruja, produced by Caracol Television, is the other project from the platform in Colombia.
Distrito Salvaje follows Jhon Jeiver (Juan Pablo Raba), a lethal guerrilla fighter who escapes the jungle after the signing of the Colombian Peace Treaty. Thus, he lands in Bogota to escape his past and try to become part of society as he looks to reconnect with his family.
However, he quickly becomes involved in a network of crime and corruptions, trying to understand the rules of the concrete jungle, protect his family from his past and facing the moral dilemma of choosing on which side of the law he wants to be on.
The show will shoot entirely in Colombia and land on the platform with 10 episodes that will premiere by the end of 2018.
In addition, to Juan Pablo Raba, the show will also star Cristina Umaña (Narcos), and Camila Sodi (Señorita Pólvora).
Javier Fuentes-León and Carlos Moreno will direct the series, while the scripts will be handled by Cristian Conti, Javier Gullón, Javier Fuentes-León and Mauricio Leyva.
Distrito Salvaje is executive produced by Cristian Conti, Andrés Calderón, Juan Pablo Raba, Javier Fuentes-León and Javier Gullón.
