Netflix has teamed with Love Productions USA to produce the digital streaming giant’s first original Mexican reality series.

Made in Mexico will follow the lives of nine socialites in Mexico City and reveals the imperfections that lie beneath the surface of elite lifestyles built on family legacies.

The main cast includes Pepe Diaz, a businessman and nightclub promoter looking to settle down and leave his playboy lifestyle behind; Kitzia Mitre, a fashion designer, mother, and cultural arbiter of taste and style; Carlos Girón Longoria, a scenester, TV host, actor and model who ties the cast together; Liz Woodburn, an American food blogger re-climbing the social ladder after leaving New York to be with her fiancé; and Columba Diaz (pictured), a fashion model and philanthropist caught in a love triangle.

Then there’s Chantal Trujillo, an American expat lifestyle blogger who left a job at Vogue to follow love; Shanik Aspe, a TV personality and former swimsuit model trying to choose between her dreams of being a pop star and the chance to settle down and start a family; Roby Checa, Kitzia’s brother-in-law and a loud and proud bad boy always looking to entertain while trying to prove himself to his family; and Hanna Jaff, a politician and philanthropist whose ambitions sometimes put her at odds with her social circles.

Made in Mexico is produced by LA-based Sky affiliate Love Productions USA, with Richard McKerrow, Kevin Bartel and Brandon  Panaligan serving as executive producers, and Lauren Volonakis and Matthew Moul serving as co-executive producers.

The series will premiere on Netflix on Sept. 28 in all of the site’s global markets.
