We are proud to partner with the Pantaya team again on this occasion,” commented Gregory Quinn, Managing Partner of Caribbean Films.
“Líos de Familia” is executive produced by James McNamara and Anjanette Delgado from Pantaya, and Gregory Quinn and Zumaya Cordero at Caribbean Films.

The comedy showcases a group of residents of a colorful middle-class building in Santo Domingo and how they cope with politician Esteban and his wife Cristina, who somehow owns two apartments in Building 28. A bank worker raising his teenage son Josué while pining for his neighbor Maritza is introduced, as well as a hairdresser who works out of home and lives with her own teen daughter Shanty and mom Yaya . Music producer Rodo, contributed much of the tracks, as well as a rapper called Milloneta , and “The Girls," who make a living via web cam subscriptions, streaming their lives from their 4th-floor apartment.
“Pantaya has been very successful attracting the large and growing Caribbean audience in the U.S. specifically with movies from Caribbean Films such as Que León, Colao, No Es Lo Que Parece and many others. The logical next step in our relationship was to create an original premium series which we are confident will become a must-watch for the United States Dominican and Puerto Rican audiences,” commented Paul Presburger, CEO of Pantaya. "Collaborating with Gregory Quinn and Zumaya Cordero from Caribbean Films and the magnificent cast that is part of this series, including the Dominican Kings of Comedy Raymond and Miguel, is just the first step," he concluded.
