Lockdown Series Launched As YouTube Originals in Spanish



It’s been over a year since the the COVID-19 pandemic struck worldwide. Although, many places aren’t locked down or with severe social distancing, the experience left most people a permanent mark on people’s psyche. In the live-action YouTube Original series Lockdown, it follows teens during their lockdowns as they solve mysteries in their neighborhood.

Lockdown is an action-packed scripted series designed to keep viewers on the edge of their seats while bringing them into a relatable situation that mirrors our own new reality with COVID-19 pandemic,” said Nadine Zylstra, head of family of Learning and Impact for YouTube Originals. “We are excited about launching the free-to stream series in Spanish to bring its timely and meaningful messages to even broader audience and extend its reach to young Spanish-speaking viewers.”

Here’s the description:

Shot entirely via webcam and smartphone, the groundbreaking series is a suspenseful look at how young people stay in touch while having to stay away, as well as what happens when restlessness leads to suspicion. Lockdown follows six friends, Nira, Emi, Sam, Aiden, and Chris, as they work together to solve mysteries in their neighborhood during the social-distancing era. Each season presents a new mystery to be solved that requires the group to work together—from a distance—while exploring their own anxieties and frustrations about life during a pandemic.

The first ten episodes comprises series one, and begins with the friends trying to make the best of life under quarantine, but boredom soon leads to increased paranoia, which leads to the first mystery they encounter and must band together to solve. Series two follows the group over the course of six episodes, as they tackle a brand new mystery, all while coming to terms with the racial justice movement, and how it has impacted their lives.
