‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ to become Netflix Spanish-language original series

I never thought I would see the day when “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, the landmark novel of one of my favorite authors, Gabriel García Márquez, would be adapted for the screen.

“Rodrigo Garcia and Gonzalo García Barcha, García Márquez’s sons, will serve as executive producers on the series, which will be filmed in Colombia.

“‘For decades our father was reluctant to sell the film rights to Cien Años de Soledad,’ Rodrigo Garcia said, using the original Spanish title, ‘because he believed that it could not be made under the time constraints of a feature film, or that producing it in a language other than Spanish would not do it justice.'”

Gracias, Netflix!
