After the premiere in the United States Maya M.C. it has become the most successful debut series this year in the North American country with nearly eight million viewers (adding different platforms). It is not a trivial success, since Latin occupation is almost full and multiple dialogues in Spanish. For the rest, the second season is guaranteed.
But the production milestone did not come from nothing. It is a reflection of successful anarchist sons, which lasted seven seasons between 2008 and 2014. The new series also focuses on the biker gang, in the Mayan homonyms, made up mostly of Mexican Americans who, in the original series, have begun to be protagonists, now become allies. And despite focusing on the new series, the gang is not necessarily a model involved in a number of crimes in the fictional border town of Santa Padre.
"It's the reality we see in Latin America People who do not choose the right way to life because they are the only thing they know But the interesting thing about this series is that it's also happening in how you get to this situation, "says Venezuelan actress Carla Baratta (28) who plays Adelita, a woman who has suffered a loss of her family in the hands of a cartel, and is now trying to avenge. "They are not bad or good characters, but the circumstances they live in are transformed into what they are. You can not say they are bad because at the end of the day these characters just want to protect their own," he adds.
In Chile, this Friday's premiere is on Monday at 23:45 hours by Fox Premium and its first complete cycle is available the same day in Fox App. "It is miraculous that this series was created.
Not only 90% of the filming is Latino, but also a good part of the production team, from screenwriters to directors. Not only is it a project aimed at being Latin politically correct, but their soul is Latino. It's a series for the Latinos, "says the actress.
Baratta, who plays his first role in the US television series, says he was impressed by what lives in his native Venezuela to form a character. "When I had to compete, massive student protests took place in Venezuela, and there were about a hundred people dead, and many times as an actress, they feel a sense of feeling to the characters, and in that case it was a loss," he explains.
Whether it is necessary to know with the sons of anarchy that they will follow May's MC, the actress assures that "it works for both audiences," but "yes, there are details to the supporters of the previous series, which are a special factor. fans will fill their hearts. "
