Eiza González Joins Boxing Limited Series ‘La Maquina’

Eiza González (Ambulance) has been cast in Searchlight Television’s Spanish-language boxing limited series titled  “La Maquina.” The series will stream on Disney’s DTC platforms and as a Hulu Original in the U.S.

Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal are also set to star.

The project was announced in July and follows an aging boxer (García Bernal), whose crafty manager (Luna) secures him one last shot at a title. But to make it to fight night, they must navigate a mysterious underworld force.

According to Deadline, González will play Irasema. Irasema is an aspiring sports journalist who approaches boxing as more of an art form. She’s the ex-wife of Esteban (Gael García Bernal), who she still deeply cares for, and mother to their two children. She’s known Esteban and Andy (Diego Luna) since they were teenagers.

Gabriel Ripstein will direct the entire series on a script from writer Marco Ramirez (Daredevil).  Marco Ramirez (Daredevil) also serves as executive producer and showrunner, with Bernal, Luna, Gerardo Gatica, Leandro Halperín, Adam Fishbach, and Kyzza Terrazas onboard as executive producers.

La Máquina is produced by Searchlight Television, Bernal (Y tu mamá también) and Luna’s banner La Corriente del Golfo.

González starred in Michael Bay’s Ambulance and most recently wrapped filming on Netflix’s The Three-Body Problem.
