YouTube announced on Friday its first-ever slate of original Spanish-language shows, which will be available in its subscription service, YouTube Premium, currently available in Latin America only in Mexico.
New series and films will feature Mexican actor Gael García Bernal, Colombian singer Maluma and Mexican comedian Sofia Niño de Rivera. “We’re thrilled to continue expanding our YouTube Originals portfolio with new Spanish-language movies and series, and to be working with amazing global Latin artists,” said Susanne Daniels, YouTube’s global head of original content.
“Latin America is a region filled with creative storytellers with unique voices, and we’re looking forward to working with them to bring their innovative brand of programming to YouTube fans around the world,” the executive added. However, the company did not give further details of the content or release date. YouTube Premium is the evolution of YouTube Red and currently includes original productions such as ‘Cobra Kai’, the sequel series of Karate Kid.
