Palermo Division is an inclusive urban guard devised as a marketing operation to improve the image of security forces. While everyone tries to understand what role it fulfills, this guard accidentally comes face to face with a strange criminal gang.
On February 17, the series División Palermo landed on the platform and in less than two days the series managed to position itself as one of the most watched on Netflix. The story is created, co-directed, co-written and starring Santiago Korovsky (El Reino) and tells the life of a group of people who are part of a so-called inclusive Urban Police.

What are the keys to this success?

Here you will find a tour of some key points of this series that revolutionized the platform.

A brilliant cast and an effective script make this series the number 1 on Netflix Argentina
Palermo Division has correct actors in each of their roles. Korovsky gives life to Felipe Rozenfeld, a character who gives that feeling of a lost young adult who doesn’t know what he wants with his life, the classic looser who achieves empathy with the viewer. Daniel Hendler, for his part, is Miguel and stands out as the instructor and head of this group that has a prosthetic arm and is the one who most defends the creation of this division with arguments and set phrases that one imagines that only he could do. Sofia, a girl in a wheelchair is played by Pilar Gamboa. She does not like to generate compassion and that is how she accompanies with each gesture certain responses that put those who rebuke her in her place. Martín Garabal, Charo López, Marcelo Subiotto, Carlos Belloso, Agustín Rittano, Sergio Prina, Alan Sabbagh, Rafael Spregelburd, Valeria Lois, Iair Said and Fabián Arenillas, among others, simply shine in each of their roles, accompanying the tone of the series that uses humor to demonstrate a harsh reality. And a point to note is that many female characters appear without make-up and with hair without great hairstyles, as ordinary people do, thus granting a closeness with the viewer.

It is a concept that has been in the air since the first episode of the series. Although the urban guard was created to resolve the idea of inclusion and diversity (among them a blind young man, a trans girl, a short man, a foreigner among others), the truth is that a kind of call to attention to the discrimination that lives in many people that is always falsely appeased by a politically correct discourse. The series invites one to wonder if this mixture of compassion and false diversity is nothing more than a dangerous combo. Although humor is used to explain it, it leaves wondering in the viewer’s mind whether it is truly inclusive or just a collection of idioms.

Humor as a way out
The sad stories that speak of obstacles, difficulties and lack of opportunities can be told from the deepest pain and thus move the viewer or use a sense of humor to achieve another type of empathy. Both options are acceptable when making a fiction. Here clearly an acid humor is chosen that does not mince words when talking about what happens to minorities without ever disrespecting them but adding a share of humor. In many fragments, the viewer will burst out laughing, which brings them closer to recovering those jokes that today can be subjected to a culture of cancellation, but here they are part of a reconciliation with more credible sentiments.
A series that mixes humor and the theme of diversity
División Palermo manages, with great care and respect, to laugh at things that perhaps seemed impossible to do in the middle of 2023. However, the series took the risk of making this play that had a chance of going wrong. It is perhaps one of the bravest and most instructive fictions of recent years that shows that good stories can be made without much pretense and with optimal results.
