Sergio Pizzolante, general manager of C&T Mobs, made several announcements: they are in very advanced meetings with important production companies for their most relevant project, the series they will make on the legendary group La Fania, and they will make two films, one in partnership with Leonardo Zimbrón, and another, partnering again with Nicky Jam and Jessy Terrero.
“Regarding La Fania Records, the legendary record label from where Willie Colón, Rubén Blades, Celia Cruz, and Tito Puente came from, we have a partnership with Concord that are the owners of Fania and with Sony Music, now not only to make an unscripted program but scripted series," he highlighted, after commenting that the importance this seal had in the 70s is now being understood as the first explosion when Latinos were noticed. "Premium production is seeing it as a Latino IP with global potential," he said.
On the other hand, he announced that they chose the book Marcus Vega Doesn't Speak Spanish by Pablo Cartaya, that tells the story of a multicultural kid born in Philadelphia to a Puerto Rican mother, and is forced to go to Puerto Rico, where he discovers that he is actually Latino. "In this project, that will be a film, we partner once again with Nicky Jam, that will be the executive producer; Jessy Terrero, who will be behind cameras; and Jorge Granier and I, as executive producers, along with Juan Diego Medina, from Industria Ink,” he commented.
Together with Leonardo Zimbrón, they will also make the film Eternos Rivales, a romantic comedy that has its origin in the Venezuelan film Papita, Maní, Tostón. “We are also evaluating the possibility of a spin-off, or second season of Nicky,” he revealed.
