30 de agosto de 2018
Banijay Rights has acquired international distribution rights to new Spanish drama Hierro.
An 8x60’ Movistar+ original series, Hierro is co-produced by Portocabo, Atlantique Productions, and ARTE France. The crime thriller, which takes place on a secluded island in the Canary Islands archipelago, is created by Pepe Coira and directed by Jorge Coira.
Hierro is the first Spanish language drama in the Banijay Rights multi-genre, 20,000-hour catalog.
Currently, in production on the island of El Hierro, the drama, starring Spanish actress Candela Peña (Princesas, Torremolinos 73) and the Argentine actor Darío Grandinetti (Wild Tales, Talk To Her), will launch on Movistar+ in the first half of 2019.
The Spanish-French-German co-production will join a strong fiction slate which already includes global scripted successes such as Versailles, Wolf Creek, and Occupied. The company will be responsible for the international distribution of all rights for Hierro, with the exception of France, Germany, Spain and Latin America.
“From the first time we saw Hierro, we immediately knew we wanted to be a part of it. With electric storytelling and premium production values, this character-driven drama is set to be a hit with international audiences. We are really excited to work with, support and distribute the work of such acclaimed production talent,” commented Caroline Torrance, Head of Scripted, Banijay Rights.
