La Casa de Papel

Netflix’s Spanish-language originals featured prominently in Parrot Analytics list of the most ‘in demand’ digital originals in Spain for the week ending August 12.

Parrot Analytics analyses the demand for recent popular digital titles across international markets, based on the application of artificial intelligence to expressions of demand across social media, fan sites, peer-to-peer protocols and file-sharing platform.

While Stranger Things topped a Netflix-dominated top 10 with an average of 3.32 million demand expressions for the week from August 6-12, local digital original La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) came a close second with 3.05 million.

Narcos, the Colombia-set drug-trafficking drama that will move to Mexico for its upcoming fourth season, which is filmed in Spanish and English, came fourth in the list with an average 2.53 million demand expressions, while Spanish period comedy-drama Las Chicas del Cable took the number five slot with 2.07 million.

The only non-Netflix titles in the top 10 were Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the second season of which was distributed on HBO España after the first aired on Antena 3, taking number six slot with two million demand expressions, and Hulu’s Castle Rock, which airs on Telefónica’s Movistar+ in Spain and which took number seven slot with 1.97 million.
