Friday 9 January 2015 | 10:25 CET | News
Telefonica has announced that it will begin to produce original content for its newly-launched Movistar Series VoD service starting in 2016. The Netflix-style service was unveiled last month and offers exclusive streams of hit US series such as Transparent, Penny Dreadful, Outlander, The Affair or Better Call Saul for EUR 7 per month. The first original production to be announced is a series set in a plague-ravaged 16th century Seville, which will begin shooting in 2016 and will be directed by Alberto Rodriguez, who recently received 17 Goya nominations for his film "La Isla Minima"
