HBO Max has acquired the first season of Spanish-language dramedy Perfect Life (“Vida Perfecta”) and revealed the trailer and poster for Selena + Chef Season 2.
Perfect Life, from star, writer, director, and creator Leticia Dolera, follows Maria, Cristina and Esther who are in search of their place in the world as they navigate the humiliations and celebrations that come with being a thirty-something millennial.
Season one will debut on Thursday, January 21 on HBO Max. Additionally, HBO Max will co-produce an original second season of the series with Movistar+.
Maria, Esther and Cristina are three women in the middle of a life crisis. They have realized that the plans they had made for themselves haven’t really gotten them the long-promised happiness they yearned for.
Together, they will find alternatives and make decisions that will lead them away from what society expects from them. They will soon realize that life doesn’t necessarily have to be what they always imagined.
Vida Perfecta had its world premiere at the San Sebastian Film Festival and was crowned Best Series at the Canneseries Festival, also winning the Special Performance award for its three leads.
Vida Perfecta was produced by Movistar+ along with Corte y Confeccion de Peliculas in association with Beta Film, which also handles world sales. A second season has wrapped production in Spain, having been co-produced by HBO Max and debuting on the platform later this year as a Max Original series.
Perfect Life will be featured on HBO Max and can be found on its new International Genre page alongside a curated selection of programming from all around the world.
Perfect Life is the latest international program made available to U.S. subscribers and joins Max Originals 4 Blocks and Arthur’s Life, HBO Europe’s 30 Coins, and classics from the HBO Max library including City of God, Cinema Paradiso and Life is Beautiful.
HBO Max today also debuted the new trailer and key art for season two of the Max Original Selena + Chef.
The new season of the unscripted series premieres on Thursday, Jan. 21 with three episodes. The season will continue with another three episodes on Jan. 28, and the final three episodes drop on Feb. 4.
In Selena + Chef season two, Selena Gomez continues her cooking adventures with a new roster of all-star chefs that help her whip up delicious dishes at home.
Like in its first season, each chef will highlight a different charity in their episode.
The new chefs included in season two are: Aarti Sequeira, Curtis Stone, Evan Funke, Graham Elliot, JJ Johnson, Jordan Andino, José Andrés, Kelis Rogers, Marcela Valladolid and Marcus Samuelsson.
The series is executive produced by Gomez for July Moon Productions, along with executive producers Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman, and Leah Hariton on behalf of Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC) and Melissa Stokes.
