NetFlix Mexico has gained 5 million subscribers since its launch three years ago, and this week NetFlix Mexico announced it will carry American Actress Jane Fonda’s new television comedy “Grace and Frankie”.
The actress was on hand for the NetFlix event in Mexico City, along with fellow actors Michael Kelly, the “House of Cards” series; Linda Cardellini, of “Bloodline”; Charlie Cox, “Marvel’s Dare Devil”; Selenis Leyva, “Orange is the New Black”; Gaz Alazraki, director of “Club of Crows” and Miguel Ángel Silvestre, of “Sense8”, all series being carried on NetFlix in 2015.
Jane Fonda, at the age of 77, is no stranger to Mexico and filmed a movie class, Old Gringo, at the ruins of Teotihuacan and Oaxaca.
The American actors attending the NetFlix event expressed the importance of more Latin actors in Hollywood films, while also sneaking in their love for Puerto Vallarta and other beach destinations such as Los Cabos and Cancun. All of the actors expressed gratitude for the friendly people of Mexico and of course the cuisine they couldn’t get enough of during their stay.
The new series starring Fonda follows long-time rivals Grace and Frankie, who are brought together after their husbands announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married.
