NETFLIX ANNOUNCES NEW ARGENTINE ORIGINAL SERIES, PUERTA 7

11/07/2018

Hollywood, California. July 11th, 2018 - Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, announced today Puerta 7, its third Argentine original series created by Martin Zimmerman (Ozark, Narcos), written by Patricio Vega (Los Simuladores) and produced by local powerhouse production company Pol-ka, which will be available exclusively on Netflix around the globe in 2019.

Puerta 7, an unflinching exploration of Argentina's infamous (and world famous) soccer barra bravas, which sit the nexus of sports, national politics, and organized crime, 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.

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.

As a lifelong soccer fan, for years I've wanted to explore the intersection between the sport, politics, and crime in Argentina-one of the great incubators for global soccer talent, and my mother's homeland , added showrunner and creator Martin Zimmerman. There is no better place than Netflix to bring this story about the world's favorite sport to a global audience. I couldn't be more thrilled to be working with Netflix yet again, combining the experience I gained on both Ozark' and Narcos' with the talents of my brilliant collaborators in Argentina, to make this dream a reality. , he added.

We're very excited that Netflix has relied on Pol-Ka to produce this original series, said Adri n Suar, Founder and Artistic Director of Pol-Ka. Since its inception, our production company has worked tirelessly with to produce high-quality content for television, and this opportunity fills us with pride: it is a huge challenge that we'll undertake with all the passion, commitment and responsibility that we put into every project .

Composed of eight one-hour episode and 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, as well as Ingobernable, Club de Cuervos, La Casa de las Flores, Monarca, Siempre Bruja, Narcos, Samantha!, O Mecanismo, O Matador, 3%, Sintonia, Super Drags and Coisa Mais Linda, among others.

About Pol-ka

Pol-ka is the most important production company in Argentina. In its more than 20 years of uninterrupted hard work in both the television and the film industries, Pol-ka has managed to mark trends with a new style in the products that it creates and produces. The quality of its shows and its human and technical assets have turned the company into a huge source of contents for very big channels and chains all over Latin America, the US and Europe. A good example of this is the miniseries called Epitafios (produced for HBO and nominated to the International Emmy Awards) and El jard n de bronce. Plus, the adaptation of the American award-winning TV show Desperate Housewives for Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and the Hispanic viewers in the USA. Other examples include: the telenovela Valentino, el argentino, in a co-production with RCN (Colombia); the miniseries Vientos de agua, in a co-production with Telecinco (Spain); the format sale of the renowned series Mujeres Asesinas to ABC, and also to Colombia, Mexico, Ecuador and Italy, where new adaptations were created and shown; and the TV shows for younger viewers Violetta and Soy Luna, both created by Disney Channel Latin America, which have proved to be a great success all over our country and also abroad. Furthermore, in 2015 the company built an alliance with Turner for the joint development of contents, as in the case of Signos, La fragilidad de los cuerpos, El Maestro, and now El Lobista.

Every year, the shows produced by Pol-ka are greatly acknowledged and they often receive domestic awards, such as Mart n Fierro and Premios Tato.

Pol-ka also has a vast and prolific experience in the production of movies; among which we can mention El hijo de la novia, which was played in theaters all around the globe as it got a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
