NETFLIX POSSESSES has partnered with producer Cuarzo to release a documentary on the unsolved crime of Marta del Castillo. The 17-year-old Sevillian girl disappeared on January 24, 2009. It was the last day her parents, Antonio del Castillo and Eva Casanueva, saw her. Later, it was to be revealed that Marta had been murdered.
More than twelve years later, the body of the 17-year-old girl has still not been found despite the convictions, the countless trials and versions of those involved, among which they point to Miguel Carcaño, the confessed murderer of Marta del Castillo . Netflix has looked into this case, which has already collected in-depth data to move it to an audiovisual format.
A release date has not yet been announced, the documentary would add to the ever-growing collection of documentaries and series in Spanish. Many Spanish productions for the streaming giant have enjoyed international success and are in high demand, such as “ Money Heist ” (La Casa De Papel) which has racked up over 65 million views, “ Cable Girls ” ( Las chicas del cable), “ Elite ” and “ Haute mer ” (Alta Mar).
As Netflix continues to search for shocking stories and cases for its documentaries, this is not surprising given that documentary series are one of the most-watched categories on the streaming service. In the UK, it ranks first in the top 10 TV channels, accounting for 17.9% in total.
