Lionsgate Feb. 21 announced that its Spanish-language streaming video service Pantaya is set to launch its first-ever original scripted series, “El Juego de las Llaves” (“The Game of Keys”) this fall.
Production with Hemisphere Media Group is already underway in Mexico City on the 10-episode comedy, which will debut in the U.S. on Pantaya and internationally in more than 200 countries on Amazon Prime Video.
“El Juego de las Llaves” is a comedy about long-term monogamy, self-realization and desire. The series follows four long-lasting couples who are friends that decide to swing. In the comedic aftermath, each character must face the impact of the decision they have made on their relationship and personal outlook on sexuality.
The cast includes Maite Perroni (“Cuidado Con El Angel,” “Rebelde”), Humberto Busto (“El Chapo,” Oso Polar), Marimar Vega (La Boda de Valentina, Amor de mis Amores), Sebastián Zurita (Ciudadano Buelna, Cómo cortar a tu Patán), Horacio Pancheri (Un Camino Hacia el Destino), Fabiola Campomanes (“Teresa,” “Mi Corazon Es Tuyo”), Hugo Catalan (“Falsa Identidad”), and Ela Velden (“Caer en Tentación,” “Despertar Contigo”).
“When we approached Corazón Films, which has been a distribution partner on Lionsgate films in Mexico, we knew we wanted to do something premium, original and enticing that viewers wouldn’t get anywhere else,” Paul Presburger, CEO of Pantaya, said in a statement.
“We anticipate ‘El Juego de las Llaves’ to be appointment-viewing for our core audience in the U.S., and is unlike anything seen in the space before,” said Mario Almeida, VP of development, programming, and acquisitions at Pantaya.
