My name is Claudya Martinez, I have a chancla that I am not afraid to use and I am a Netflix binge-a-holic who is about to pee her chonies in excitement over the possibility of being able to binge-watch a series about Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
Well, chisme on the internet has it that Mónica Lozano, who produced an eight episode series about the life and work of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, is in talks with the streaming powers that be at Netflix to stream the series. Lozano has made it clear that an agreement has not yet been or might not ever be reached with Netflix. Still, a woman and her chancla can wish, can’t they?

Diego Rivera’s grandson, Diego López, contributed with all kinds of research he did on Kahlo, Rivera and their work.
Each episode is centered around one particular piece of work, which sounds fascinating considering that the work of both artists reflects the personal, political and social aspects of their lives.
Whether or not the deal with Netflix pans out (please let it pan out, please let it pan out), Lozano wants to make sure that the series gets the widest audience possible. Distribution could be through streaming services, movie theaters or who knows what else, so keep an eye out.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if the series could make it onto Netflix this July since Kahlo was born July 6, 1907 and died July 13, 1954?
Netflix, this part is for you:
I am a dedicated binge-watcher of so many of your offerings. I have stood (more like laid on the sofa while eating popcorn) by you for a VERY long time. It’s hard to even imagine my days before you streamed into my home (dark times, dark times indeed). You’ve given me so much (lovin’ “One Day at a Time” btw, keep it coming), it’s obvious you are a giver. So give me this series about Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants this to happen. Make it happen, please and muchas gracias!
Would you be interested in this series coming to Netflix?
That’s it for this week’s The Flying Chancla Report. I love you mucho and remember, spread love, not chanclazos!
