Gael García Bernal & Diego Luna To Star In Searchlight TV’s Spanish-Language Limited Boxing Series ‘La Máquina’ For Hulu

Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna are teaming up for a Spanish-language boxing series for Hulu.

The pair, who first worked together on Y Tu Mamá También, will star and produce La Máquina for the streamer.

The series is produced by Searchlight TV, the Disney-owned television arm of Searchlight Pictures and marks its third series for the streamer following The Dropout and History of the World, Part II.

Daredevil’s Marco Ramirez will serve as showrunner and 600 Miles’ Gabriel Ripstein will direct. García Bernal and Luna will produce under their La Corriente del Golfo banner along with Gerardo Gatica, Leandro Halperin and Adam Fishbach.

La Máquina follows an aging boxer, played by García Bernal, whose crafty manager, played by Luna, secures him one last shot at a title.  But to make it to fight night, they must navigate a mysterious underworld force.
