Lionsgate and Hemisphere Media Group announced that their premium Spanish-language streaming service PANTAYA is set to launch its first-ever original scripted series “El Juego de las Llaves” (The Game of Keys) this fall. Production is already underway in Mexico City on the 10-episode star-studded premium comedy series, which will debut in the U.S. exclusively on PANTAYA, and will stream internationally in more than 200 countries and territories on Amazon Prime Video.

The provocative half-hour Spanish-language original series features an all-star ensemble cast including Maite Perroni (“Cuidado Con El Angel,” “Rebelde”), Humberto Busto (“El Chapo,” Oso Polar), Marimar Vega (La Boda de Valentina, Amor de mis Amores), Sebastián Zurita (Ciudadano Buelna, Cómo cortar a tu Patán), Horacio Pancheri (Un Camino Hacia el Destino), Fabiola Campomanes (“Teresa,” “Mi Corazon Es Tuyo”), Hugo Catalan (“Falsa Identidad”), and Ela Velden (“Caer en Tentación,” “Despertar Contigo”).

Set in modern day Mexico City, “El Juego de las Llaves” is a comedy about long-term monogamy, self-realization and desire. The series follows four long-lasting couples who are friends that decide to swing. In the comedic aftermath, each character must face the impact of the decision they have made on their relationship and personal outlook on sexuality.

“El Juego de las Llaves” was created by Marisa Quiroga and developed by Patrick McGinley and Corazón Films’ Sandro Halphen, alongside Amazon Prime Video and PANTAYA. The series, including the pilot, will be directed by award winning director Fernando Lebrija (Amar a Morir). Kenya Marquez and Javier Colinas will also direct some episodes. “El Juego de las Llaves” is produced by PANTAYA and Corazón Films. Eckehardt von Damm, Roberto Fiesco and Sandro Halphen of Corazón Films as well as Fernando Lebrija will serve as executive producers.

“We’re thrilled to be launching PANTAYA’s original programming with a premium series led by some of the biggest Latinx talent who have captivated audiences around the world,” said PANTAYA and Pantelion Films CEO Paul Presburger. “When we approached Corazón Films, who’s been a great distribution partner on Lionsgate films in Mexico, we knew we wanted to do something premium, original and enticing that viewers wouldn’t get anywhere else. El Juego de las Llaves underscores the type of exciting, high-profile content we offer our audiences.”

“We anticipate El Juego de las Llaves to be appointment viewing for our core audience in the U.S., and is unlike anything seen in the space before,” said Mario Almeida, VP of Development, Programming, and Acquisitions at PANTAYA.
