Luis Gerardo Méndez is ready to bend it like Beckham on Netflix…
The on-demand Internet streaming media provider has released the first official trailer for Club De Cuervos, starring the 33-year-old Mexican actor.
From Gaz Alazraki (Nosotros los Nobles), Netflix’ new dramedy centers on the prominent Iglesias family, whose members engage in an outrageous battle to determine who will gain full control of his beloved professional soccer team: The Cuervos of Nuevo Toledo, when the family patriarch dies unexpectedly.
Balanced equally among comedy and drama, Club De Cuervos follows all the funny, sexy and dramatic action off the field and in the locker rooms. Egos, tempers, insults and soccer balls fly as the party boy brother, the work obsessed sister, a (possibly) pregnant girlfriend, the beleaguered team captain and everyone else in between all enter the pitch, all vying to score a personal goal.
Club De Cuervos stars Méndez as Chava Iglesias and Mariana Trevino, as Isabel Iglesias Reina and features Stephanie Cayo, Daniel Gimenez Cacho, Ianis Guerrero and Antonio de la Vega.
The Alazraki Productions series was created by Alazraki and Mike Lam.
All 13 episodes of Season 1 will be available exclusively on Netflix on August 7.
