One Hundred Years of Solitude: Netflix Series of Gabriel García Márquez’s Masterwork

Netflix has acquired rights to adapt Gabriel García Márquez’s masterwork One Hundred Years of Solitude as a new series.

The project marks the first screen adaptation of the landmark novel.

Netflix will produce a Spanish-language original series based on the novel, first published in 1967. It has since sold an estimated 50 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 46 languages.

The Nobel Prize-winning author died in 2014 at 87.

García Márquez’s sons Rodrigo Garcia and Gonzalo García Barcha will serve as executive producers on the series, which will be filmed mainly in Colombia. Netflix didn’t announce other details for the “ project.

“For decades our father was reluctant to sell the film rights to ‘Cien Años de Soledad’ because he believed 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,” Rodrigo Garcia said in a statement.
