|By:, SA News Editor

Netflix (NFLX -5%) announces it will launch an original Spanish-language series for the first time in 2015

The company ordered 13 episodes of a comedy about feuding soccer team heirs called Nosotros los Nobles.

What to watch: During the firm's earnings call (transcript) earlier this week, CEO Reed Hasting said the company is "very confident" that it will see success in Latin America. Despite the optimism, analysts forecasting international subscriber growth for Netflix have had a tough time getting a handle on where the ceiling is for the Latin American nations.
