Eiza González is a machine…
The 32-year-old Mexican actress and singer will star opposite Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal in the Hulu Originals limited series La Máquina.
La Máquina follows an aging boxer (Bernal) whose crafty manager (Luna) secures him one last shot at a title. But to make it to fight night, they must navigate a mysterious underworld force.
Gonzalez will portray Irasema, an aspiring sports journalist who approaches boxing as more of an art form. She’s the ex-wife of Esteban (Bernal), who she still deeply cares for, and mother to their two children. She’s known Esteban and Andy (Luna) since they were teenagers.
La Máquina is produced by Searchlight Television, Bernal and Luna’s banner La Corriente del Golfo. It will stream on Disney’s DTC platforms as a Hulu Original in the U.S.
Marco Ramirez serves as executive producer and showrunner, with Bernal, Luna, Gerardo Gatica, Leandro Halperín, Adam Fishbach, and Kyzza Terrazas onboard as executive producers. Gabriel Ripstein will direct.
González most recently wrapped filming The Three-Body Problem for Netflix, and Apple TV+’s anthology series Extrapolations with Meryl Streep, Forest Whitaker and Marion Cotillard.
González can also be seen in Michael Bay’s Ambulance opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen.
