Netflix Books Harlan Coben Adaptation As Spanish Original As Reed Hastings Opens Madrid Production Hub

Netflix has unveiled two new Spanish originals including an adaptation of a Harlan Coben story as Reed Hastings was in Madrid to open the Svod service’s first European production hub.

The digital platform has ordered El Inocente and Los Favoritos de Midas. El Inocente is a remake of Coben’s book and has been adapted for TV by Oriol Paulo. The eight-part series tells the tale of Mateo who, nine years ago, interceded in a fight and ended up becoming a murderer. Now he’s an ex-convict who takes nothing for granted. His wife, Olivia, is pregnant, and both are about to get the house of their dreams. But a shocking and inexplicable call from Olivia’s cell phone again destroys Mateo’s life for the second time.

Paulo writes alongside Jordi Vallejo and Guillem Clúa with Coben, Paulo, Belén Atienza, Sandra Hermida, Eneko Lizarraga and Jesús de la Vega
