For a few years the world of entertainment has changed completely: now we can enjoy the best content without a television, even without being at home, since we can open Netflix or watch any movie online from our computer, tablet or cell phone.
In Argentina, the evening novels are still there, but since television is part of a millionaire market that already has established rules, web series came to break with the routine and expand the creativity of its creators and producers without rules or restrictions.
This genre has its own language, identity, personal brand and the range of options is increasingly wide.
