Blanca Soto Starring in New Netflix Series from Raze


Raze, which was co-founded by Emiliano Calemzuk, Sofia Vergara and Luis Balaguer, has three new original series heading into production, including an action drama for Netflix that stars Blanca Soto.

Catrina: La Santa Muerte, which is being produced for Netflix, marks Soto’s comeback to the small screen. Soto (Eva Luna, Señora Acero) is also executive producing the action series, which is set on the geographical border between Mexico and the U.S. at a time when the metaphysical border between the world of the living and the dead is starting to blur.

Also from Raze, My Step-brother (Mi Hermanastro) is set up as a script at Hulu. Based on the online Latin American hit series of the same name, Mi Hermanastro is about two teenage step-siblings at odds with each other and struggling to find their place in life who accidentally sleep together during a debauched game of seven minutes in heaven. The script is written by Liz Sczudlo, whose credits include Sea Change, Switched at Birth, The Following and 90210.

The Black Veil, meanwhile, is set up at TNT. The events and characters depicted in the series are fiction, though they are inspired by actual events described in newly released Inquisition documents from the Vatican regarding a criminal case against an Italian order of nuns around 1800. The script is written by Luisa Leschin, whose credits includes Just Add Magic, East Los High and George Lopez.

“In just one year, Raze has jumped to a leadership position as a multi-purpose Latino creative engine capable of growing a digital media and social platform, as well as supplying high-quality long-form product to top distributors in the U.S. and Latin America,” said Calemzuk. “As we move forward with this original programming slate, we will bring the best content to our viewers through their favorite platforms.”
