While the show was originally announced in July 2018, the details of the series have been made available now. While the plot is still under wraps, it is said that PeeCee and Richard will star in the U.S. “mothership” edition of the series. Amazon also announced that a local language production of the franchise will originate from Mexico, in addition to the previously announced versions in Italy and India.
