Netflix partners with Pol-ka to produce new original series in Argentina

Netflix announced “Puerta “7, its third Argentine original series, which will be produced by local powerhouse production company Pol-ka. It will be available exclusively on Netflix around the globe in 2019.
The thriller, created by Martin Zimmerman (Ozark, Narcos) and written by Patricio Vega (Los Simuladores), will explore Argentina’s soccer ‘barra bravas’, which sit the nexus of sports, national politics and organized crime.
The story will follow “one woman’s attempt to cut through this male-dominated world and cleanse one club of its corruption and criminal element in order to redeem her family name; one young man’s descent into a barra brava in order to lift his family from back-breaking poverty; as well as the civil war within that same club’s barra brava as warring factions fight over the millions they syphon off from the club’s every revenue stream”, said the company in a release.
“We’re thrilled to continue investing in the wonderful content and talent Argentina has to offer, and especially to be working on our new Argentine original with Pol-ka and the creators of hit shows such as Los Simuladores and Ozark,” said Erik Barmack, Vice President of International Originals.
“Puerta 7”will have eight one-hour episode and will be shot entirely in 4k. This new thriller joins a larger slate of original productions being filmed in Latin America, including Argentine productions “Edha” and “Go! Vive a tu Manera”.
