Entertainment streaming giant Netflix has announced that they have acquired the rights to develop Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ groundbreaking novel ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude.’

In a Twitter post, the company said that they will “adapt it into a series.” “Netflix has acquired the rights to Gabriel García Márquez’s masterpiece “One Hundred Years of Solitude” and will adapt it into a series,” Netflix stated. “This marks the first and only time in more than 50 years that his family has allowed the project to be adapted for the screen.”

“One Hundred Years of Solitude” is a story of multi-generational Buendia family, living in the fictional town of Macondo, in Columbia. Its creator, Marquez, is a recipient of Nobel Prize award and is considered as one of the most influential authors of 20th-century. He is known for his magic realism literary style of writing. 

Upon his death at the age of 87 in April 2014, Columbia President Juan Manuel Santos called him “the greatest Colombian who ever lived.”
