Netflix has released a preview for the upcoming series ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’, which is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by late Mexican author Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
The clip was released on the 40th anniversary of Garcia’s Nobel Prize win in literature.
It gives a glimpse of Macondo, a fictional town in the novel which is home to the Buendia family, around whom the plot is centered. The town was recreated in Colombia.
Alex García López and Laura Mora have been announced as directors for the ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’. José Rivera, Natalia Santa, Camila Brugés and Albatros González are the screenwriters.
Francisco Ramos, VP of Latin American Content, said: “A little more than three years ago we announced our decision with García Márquez’s family to bring to life the first audiovisual production of this work, and today, with much pride, ambition, and a great sense of commitment and responsibility, we are very happy to share our plans.”
