El Español says Amazon executives have been in talks with Spanish producers for several months and the Spanish capital now seems likely to get the go-ahead in the next few weeks. Madrid would serve alongside London as the European headquarters for its productions.
Already, Amazon has been working on a number of series that will be produced on the European continent. In July, a deal was closed with Secuoya Studios in Tres Cantos to produce 12 series a year.
According to CNMC, Amazon has 656,000 homes using its service in Spain.
In the last few days distribution deals have been signed with Orange and Vodafone.
