Amazon Picks Up TV Azteca’s Bad Maids


The new TV Azteca series Bad Maids (Las Malcriadas) will be exclusively available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video in LatAm starting October 15.

Executive produced by Joshua Mintz, Bad Maids tells the story of Laura, a young journalist who discovers that her birth mother was a domestic worker in her childhood home and decides to do more research by passing herself off as a servant contracted by the Sweet Home Employment Agency. Across 90 episodes, dark secrets are revealed about a criminal organization tied to this story.

Launched on September 18, the series airs daily at 10:30 p.m. on Azetca Trece in Mexico and will be available each Friday on starting on October 15.

Mintz commented: “It’s an innovative series that uses fiction to touch on very sensitive real-life topics about domestic service, the lack of worth that it represents and the many crimes that can happen under the camouflage of work-placement agencies, including robberies, child trafficking, prostitution and the renting of wombs.”

“We are very excited to feature Las Malcriadas (Bad Maids) on Amazon Prime Video for members across all of Latin America,” said Fidela Navarro, the director of TV Azteca International. “This agreement between our two companies allows us to mutually reach an even bigger audience and offer an added value for customers throughout the region.”
