HBO Max announces MARIACHIS, a new original Mexican series where music and traditions play very important roles. The narrative of the series, which recently began filming in Mexico, promotes the resignification of family relationships with a very local touch, full of fusions between drama and comedy, tradition and contemporaneity.
Directed by Hammudi Al-Rahmoun Font (El Chapo) and Mario Antonio Mandujano Sánchez, the series features a renowned cast that includes Vadhir Derbez (El Mesero), Pedro Fernández (Malverde: the patron saint), Consuelo Duval (La Familia P. Luche), Regina Orozco (Barbara’s sins), Antonio Mauri A. (Heirs by accident, Luis Miguel: The series) and Alberto Estrella (La Desalmada).
Inspired by the Mexican gold cinema that saw the birth of authentic Latin American idols such as Pedro Infante, Jorge Negrete, María Félix, Pedro Armendáriz, Dolores del Rio and Javier Solís, MARIACHIS is a dramatic comedy with a contemporary perspective and where it reflects on the way in which Mexican traditions are kept alive through the promotion of music as a therapeutic method.
“With this new production, we reiterate our commitment to continue creating stories that truly embrace audiences in the region. MARIACHIS draws on the most beloved culture and traditions of the Mexican people and delivers a drama that we believe will amuse and excite not only Mexicans, but everyone in Latin America.” comments Marcelo Tamburri, Head of Scripted Content Development for WarnerMedia Latin America
MARIACHIS , produced by WarnerMedia Latin America in conjunction with Hippo, addresses universal issues such as family and the importance of culture in a country where values and customs are still essential to the idiosyncrasies of people.
