Made in Mexico: Netflix announces first Mexican reality series
21st August 2018
Netflix has announced its first Mexican reality series, Made in Mexico.
The show, which is produced by Love Productions USA, invites us to get to know the opulent lifestyles and famous families of Mexico City’s socialites and the expats vying for a spot in their exclusive social order. It includes Richard McKerrow, Kevin Bartel and Brandon Panaligan as executive producers and Lauren Volonakis and Matthew Moul as co-executive producers.
It follows the lives of nine well-to-do socialites, revealing the flawed lives of the seemingly perfect elite. They are passionate, unapologetically real, fashionable and sophisticated, and know how to set trends in one of the world’s most culturally vibrant cities, where family name is your bond and legacy is everything.
The series marks Netflix’s ongoing push into unscripted TV, with a host of real estate and lifestyle shows recently joining a line-up that includes multiple attempts at talk shows and its Total Wipeout-style contest, Ultimate Beastmaster. While the UK and USA go mad for Love Island, though, Netflix is also investing in reality series, such as Japan’s Terrace House. The popularity of that show internationally is proof that reality shows, even without a localised version, can travel overseas and reach a global audience.
A lot of a show’s success, though, depends on the contestants taking part. Made in Mexico will feature the following people:
Pepe Díaz, a 35-year-old successful businessman and nightclub impresario who wants to shed his playboy past and settle down into a new life.
Kitzia Mitre, a fashion designer who splits her time between the city and her family’s sprawling ranch. Born and raised into Mexico’s high society, when she’s not chasing after her toddler son, Kitzia sits atop her social circle, keeping a tight rein on who gains access while acting as the de facto arbiter of taste and style.
Carlos Girón Longoria, the connector between everyone in the Made in Mexico cast. Estranged from his father, Carlos keeps his focus on his fast-paced life as a TV host, actor and model when he is not refereeing the drama of his high-society friends.
Liz Woodburn, a cultured, well-traveled American food blogger who is recently engaged and finds that she must re-climb the social ladder as she adjusts to her new home after leaving New York City to live with her fiancé.
Columba Díaz, a high-fashion model who is the life of the party. The highly sought after bachelorette discovers herself in the middle of a love triangle, but wants nothing more than to focus on her career and philanthropy work.
Chantal Trujillo, an American expat who left a job at Vogue to follow the love of her life to Mexico. In short time, Chantal has made a name for herself as a lifestyle blogger running in Mexico City’s It-crowd. But the young fashionista must decide whether she made the right move coming to the city and if the prospect of a marriage proposal is really in her future.
Shanik Aspe, a TV personality and former swimsuit model who has dreams of being a pop star. While she enjoys the lavish life of TV celebrity, she has to figure out if she wants to give it all up for one last chance to become a singer or settle down to raise a family.
Roby Checa, brother-in-law to Kitzia and the bad boy of the Checa clan. He is loud, proud and the ultimate showman who is always ready to entertain. The 31-year-old is balancing his desire to party with a need to find success in his business partnerships and prove to his family that he can make it on his own.
Hanna Jaff, a 30-year-old politician and philanthropist who runs the Jaff Foundation. Hanna passionately pursues causes that are important to her, but sometimes finds her ambition leads to friction within her social circles.
Made in Mexico will debut globally on Friday 28th September.
