One Hundred Years Of Solitude: Plot

‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ is a story which involves the multi-generational Buendia family, whose patriarch José Arcadio Buendía, founded the fictitious Colombian town of Macondo.

García Márquez sons Rodrigo Garcia and Gonzalo García Barcha will be the executive producer of this show. This will be the first time when García Márquez book will be adapted for the screen. The author died in the year 2014 and he refused to sell the film rights while he was alive.

His sons said that their father thought that it could not be made under the time constraints of a feature film, or that producing it in a language other than Spanish would not do it justice. They also said “But in the current golden age of series, with the level of talented writing and directing, the cinematic quality of content, and the acceptance by worldwide audiences of programs in foreign languages, the time could not be better to bring an adaptation to the extraordinary global viewership that Netflix provides. We are excited to support Netflix and the filmmakers in this venture, and eager to see the final product.”

Francisco Ramos, the Vice President of Spanish Language Originals for Netflix said that they were honoured to finally get the rights to screen it first after many attempts. He also confirmed that they will work with the best Latin American talent. It is too early to say who is going to be the writer and the cast for this series. But one thing which is assured is that this series will be shot in Columbia!

For now, all we can do is wait and hope for more exciting news in the near future.
