Netflix is developing its first European production hub in Madrid, the company announced Tuesday. The production facility will be located at Ciudad de la Tele, a sprawling 22,000-square-meter campus in Tres Cantos, and will be central growing Netflix's slate of Spanish-language original content.

With over 13,000 cast, crew and extras working on 20 Netflix original productions across Spain this year, the hub's development is a reflection of Netflix's deepening investment in Spain. "The establishment of our first European production hub will create new opportunities for Spain's incredible creative talent, as well as demonstrating our commitment to the production of original content throughout Europe," said Erik Barmack, vice president of international originals at Netflix, in a statement.

The company has several Spanish titles in production, such as Elisa & Marcela and The Alcásser Murders, and will soon release season three of Las Chicas del Cable and young adult drama Élite.
