A reality show following nine Mexico City socialites debuts today on Netflix.

Made in Mexico, consisting of eight hour-long episodes, has drawn backlash for its focus on folks who are lighter-skinned and wealthier than typical Mexicans.

For examples of the criticism, just look at the comments below the show’s YouTube trailer. You can watch the trailer itself here:

Netflix’s take? The cast is “passionate, fashionable, sophisticated, and unapologetically real…They may lead opulent lives, but a peek behind the curtain reveals a tangled web of intrigue, envy and personal struggles.”
