Sky Rojo (transl. Red Leatherette) is a Spanish action crime drama television series, created by Álex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato. The series traces three prostitutes who flee from their pimp. According to the creators, the series shows “the impunity, ambiguity and brutal reality of prostitution, and the psychological portraits of those on both sides of the scale”. Pina and Martínez Lobato have described the series as “Latin pulp”.
Produced by Vancouver Media and distributed by Netflix, the series premiered on 19 March 2021. Two seasons of eight 25-minute episodes each were announced. The series’ second season is scheduled to premiere on 23 July.
The second season will arrive much quicker than a standard Netflix original, with a release date set for Friday 23rd July – just four months after the first edition aired.
