Strengthening their partnership for the Spanish-language world, Telemundo and Netflix have expanded their distribution deal by adding the musical series Guerra de Ídolos.
Starring Sheryl Rubio, María León, María José Magán, Sofía Lama and Erika de la Rosa, the drama, set in Mexico, will include traditional soap opera topics like fame, wealth, love and revenge.
Guerra de Ídolos will premiere on Netflix and Telemundo in 2017, but has no specific release date yet.
The production announcement arrives shortly after both partners extended their worldwide alliance. Under the terms of the current distribution agreement, Telemundo series such as El Chema and Sin Senos Sí Hay Paraíso will premiere exclusively on Netflix Latin America, to be available later in Spain and the US. The popular subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform has also gained on-demand rights for hits like La Reina del Sur and Pasión de Gavilanes.
