The 16-part series will follow the multi-generational story of José Arcadio Buendía and Úrsula Iguarán’s family. When the two cousins wed against their families’ wishes, the two set out to establish a new town. Macondo plays host to future generations of Buendías, who live through love, madness and war.

The programme was shot in Colombia entirely in Spanish, with the support of García Márquez’s family. Claudio Cataño (A Thousand Fangs) appears in the teaser as the adult version of Colonel Aureliano Buendía.
