DevelopmentEdit

The series was created by Andrés Gelós, who also created Kdabra and Cumbia Ninja. Edgar Spielmann, COO of FOX Networks Group Latin America, stated that "The completion of Cumbia Ninja last year provided us with the experience and direction necessary to develop a project of this magnitude. 2091 is definitely our most ambitious production in terms of post production, where between 70% and 80% of each episode is mixed with visual effects and the total post-production process of the series extends up to a year."[4]

FilmingEdit

The series began filming in April 2016 in Colombia,[3][11] specifically in the cities of Bogota, the desert of Tatacoa and Neiva.[12] The first season ended in July 2016.[4]

MarketingEdit

On July 1, 2016, the Fox Latin America channel launched the first teaser of the series, which shows different newspaper headlines with dates between 2016 and 2091. Most of the headlines talk about the power that video games have taken with the passing of years.[13]

The second teaser was released on August 13, 2016, showing the series logo alongside fragments of destopian images and police.[14] Ten days later the first promotional advance of the series was launched, in which the protagonists describe 2091 with different synonyms[15] and made a countdown until the premiere.
