THE Netflix announced today (6) that it has purchased the rights to the author’s book Gabriel García Márquez, One hundred years of Solitude, and it will turn into a series.
The streaming service did not give further details about the project, only released a short teaser (below) and stated that it is the first and only time (so far) that the author’s family has given permission for this to happen.
According to the synopsis of the book, One hundred years of Solitude tells the incredible and sad story of the Buendía – the strain of loners who will not be given “a second chance on earth” and presents the wonderful universe of the fictional Macondo, where the romance takes place.
It is there that we accompany several generations of this family, as well as the rise and fall of the village. In addition to the technical devices and literary influences that overflow from the book, we still see in its pages what by many is considered an authentic encyclopedia of the imaginary, in a style that enshrined the Colombian as one of the greatest authors of the 20th century.
The book was launched in Brazil by Record Publisher.
One hundred years of Solitude has no premiere date.
