'Made in Mexico': Netflix announces first-ever Mexican reality show chronicling lives of nine socialites
Debuting globally on September 28 on Netflix, the reality show follows Mexico City's wealthy socialites and their opulent lifestyles as they try to meander their way through life
Netflix continues to revolutionize their platform for diversity by announcing the arrival of their first ever Mexican reality series titled 'Made in Mexico'. The captivating reality show follows Mexico City's wealthy socialites and their opulent lifestyles, according to the official description from Netflix. The series is set to debut globally on September 28 on Netflix.
Following the lives of nine well-to-do socialites, 'Made in Mexico' is set to reveal the flawed lives of the seemingly perfect elite. They are passionate, unapologetically real, fashionable and sophisticated, and know how to set trends in one of the world’s most culturally vibrant cities, where the family name is your bond and legacy is everything.
The participants on the show include, Pepe Díaz — a 35-year-old businessman and nightclub impresario who wants to shed his playboy past and settle down into a new life. Kitzia Mitre, born and raised into Mexico’s high society, also joins in as a fashion designer who splits her time between the city and her family’s sprawling ranch. When she’s not chasing after her toddler son, Kitzia sits atop her social circle, keeping a tight rein on who gains access while acting as the de facto arbiter of taste and style.
There's Carlos Girón Longoria at the center of his social scene and is the connector between everyone in the 'Made in Mexico' cast. Estranged from his father, Carlos keeps his focus on his fast-paced life as a TV host, actor and model when he is not refereeing the drama of his high-society friends.
The show also has Liz Woodburn — a cultured, well-traveled American food blogger who is recently engaged and finds that she must re-climb the social ladder as she adjusts to her new home after leaving New York City to live with her fiancé.
Columba Díaz, a high-fashion model and the life of the party is also going to be on the show and is expected to discover herself in the middle of a love triangle, but wants nothing more than to focus on her career and philanthropy work.
Chantal Trujillo is an American expat who left a job at Vogue to follow the love of her life to Mexico. In short time, Chantal has made a name for herself as a lifestyle blogger running in Mexico City’s it-crowd. The show follows this young fashionista deciding whether she made the right move coming to the city and if the prospect of a marriage proposal is really in her future.
Shanik Aspe joins in as a TV personality and former swimsuit model who has dreams of being a pop star. While she enjoys the lavish life of TV celebrity, she has to figure out if she wants to give it all up for one last chance to become a singer or settle down to raise a family.

Roby Checa, who is also the brother-in-law of Kitzia, is the quintessential bad boy of the Checa clan. He is loud, proud and the ultimate showman who is always ready to entertain. The 31-year-old is balancing his desire to party with a need to find success in his business partnerships and prove to his family that he can make it on his own.
Lastly, there's the 30-year-old politician, Hanna Jaff — a philanthropist who runs the Jaff Foundation. Hanna passionately pursues causes that are important to her, but sometimes finds her ambition leads to friction within her social circles.
The show will is produced by Love Productions USA and includes Richard McKerrow, Kevin Bartel, and Brandon Panaligan as executive producers and Lauren Volonakis and Matthew Moul as co-executive producers.
