The upcoming one-hour Netflix survival drama showcases a cast to captivate audiences.


Netflix promises a starry cast for its upcoming one-hour drama series, Breathe.

The streamer has tapped Melissa Barrera as the series star opposite fellow actors Florencia Lozano and Pablo Espinosa.

Barrera, who heated up the big screen this summer with her performance as Vanessa in the movie adaptation of In the Heights, is coming back to the small screen as Liv, an attorney who must survive the Canadian wilderness alone when her plane crashes. Lozano and Espinosa will play Barrera's parents.

The series was created by Martin Gero (Blindspot), writer-executive Brendan Gall and Warner Bros. Television.

Espinosa is known for his work on El Secretario, A Corazón Abierto and La Fan. He most recently starred opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones on Cocaine Godmother, and as Luis Carlos Galán on Narcos.
