Netflix’s Spanish production capacity has doubled

On Tuesday, Netflix doubled its production capacity in Spain, which is a center for making movies and TV shows in Europe.

The new facilities include five film sets and 30 editing suites in Tres Cantos, north of Madrid.

Netflix said that it has doubled the amount of content it can make in Spain by adding 10 sets and a room for changing.

In 2019, the entertainment platform opened its first studios outside the U.S. on the same site, shortly after “La Casa de Papel” became its first non-English global hit.

The Tres Cantos hub has become Netflix’s main EU production site, with over 30 films and series shot there in 2022, including “Welcome to Eden” and “Elite.”

Culture Minister Miquel Iceta welcomed the news, saying he wants to encourage major platforms and producers to set up shop in Spain.

The southern European nation’s landscapes resemble the American West, attracting Hollywood in the 1960s.

The Spanish government aims to triple audiovisual production by 2025.
