Just over a week after the performance in San Telmo in which it announced nearly a dozen local productions (including the adaptation of El Eternauta), Netflix reported that it plans to open offices in Buenos Aires this year to promote local developments and maintain more direct contact with customers.» As part of the commitment to continue betting on Argentina, Netflix will open its office in Buenos Aires in 2020. In this way we will be able to better serve our members and the local creative community, while investing in stories made in Argentina that can be seen all over the world,» said Francisco Ramos, the vice president of Original Production and responsible for Spain and Latin America of the company, in a statement that accompanied a fun video posted on the networks, in which he performs a short sketch with President Reed Hasting and a cast of Argentine actors.
«Paco, why don’t we have an office here?» asks his colleague in the video. «Argentina is one of the ten most important countries for Netflix, we produce wonderful content that is watched by the world, I think it would make sense to me.» The announcement includes Juan Minujín, Maite Lanata, Balthazar Murillo, Natalie Perez and Sebastián Wainraich, who together with the executives review some of the platform series and specials produced in the country, such as Apache or Puerta 7.
