A few months away from the debut of the first biographical series developed by Disney Media, Somos Distribution, Juan Gabriel and produced by BTF Media, Hasta Que Te Conocí, Leonardo Aranguibel, Production director at Disney Media Distribution Latin America, told PRODU that this project has managed to impact the industry and becomes an important step for the company to start producing original stories. “We have been making local productions in the entire region and this project is a significant step for us to start producing original stories and new contents. We have worked with successful versions of our vast catalogue, we will continue to do that, but Hasta Que Te Conocí is our first original series and our first biography, that seems to have impacted the industry, because it is a genre that others are also developing”, he commented. Aranguibel announced that it will be aired on screens of networks that have already purchased it, such as TNT (Turner), Telemundo and TV Azteca, as of the second quarter of the year: “There are many others where it will also be broadcast and that is a sign of the great celebrity Juan Gabriel is”. At the end, he mentioned the production of a new biographical story based on an entertainment and sports character they will soon disclose.
