The series is produced by independent Colombian entertainment company Dynamo, which has been behind more than 47 feature films and 25 television series.

“One Hundred Years of Solitude” was filmed in the regions of La Guajira, Magdalena, Cesar, Cundinamarca, and Tolima in Colombia.

The series tells the story of the Buendía family, tormented by madness, impossible love, war, and the fear of a curse that condemns them to solitude for a hundred years in the mythical town of Macondo.

The official synopsis reads: “Married against their parent’s wishes, cousins José Arcadio Buendía and Úrsula Iguarán leave their village behind and embark on a long journey in search of a new home. Accompanied by friends and adventurers, their journey culminates with the founding of a utopian town on the banks of a river of prehistoric stones that they baptize Macondo. Several generations of the Buendía lineage will mark the future of this mythical town, tormented by madness, impossible loves, a bloody and absurd war, and the fear of a terrible curse that condemns them, without hope, to one hundred years of solitude.”

Alex García López and Laura Mora both direct the series, which stars Claudio Cataño as lead character Colonel Aureliano Babilonia. Jerónimo Barón and Santiago Vásquez play younger versions of him. The cast is rounded out by Marco González, Leonardo Soto, Susana Morales, Ella Becerra, Carlos Suaréz, and Moreno Borja.

The series is executive produced by Diego Ramírez Schrempp, Juliana Flórez Luna, Andrés Calderón, Josep Amorós, Carolina Caicedo, Alex García López, Laura Mora, José Rivera, Rodrigo García, and Gonzalo García Barcha.
