MIAMI – March 10, 2023 – The first two episodes of LAS PELOTARIS 1926, the new ViX+ Original series are available now to stream, with new episodes dropping every Friday. Almost a century later, the story of a group of pioneering sportswomen who broke barriers in a male-dominated world comes to light in the first fiction that will feature how the first professional women athletes risked everything on the court and in life. 

Filmed in Mexico and Spain, LAS PELOTARIS 1926 tells the story of Chelo, Idoia and Itzi, three Basque pelota players who struggle to achieve their dreams in the 1920s.
