In the context of MIPCOM, Fernando Barbosa, SVP and general manager of Disney Media Distribution Latin America, The Walt Disney Company Latin America, announced the production, together with Pampa Films, of a new biographical series based on the amazing life of the best boxer and idol of Argentineans of all times: Carlos Monzón, former middleweight boxing world champion.

The dramatic 13-episode series (one hour each), will depict his glamorous life and tragic ending, after being in jail accused of murdering his wife.

This production by Disney Media Distribution Latin America and Pampa Films is already in the project development phase. The shootings will take place in Argentina and in some international locations.

“I am very proud to announce this amazing project that will depict the dramatic life of one of the greatest and truest Argentinean idols. For older generations, it will be a piece to remember this great legend, and for new generations, an opportunity to get to know the idol,” expressed Barbosa.

The series will be launched on Space. Ángel Zambrano, Senior VP for Content and Purchases at Turner, commented that he is thrilled that will be aired on that signal, which has had a long relationship with Argentinean boxing.

For his part, Leonardo Aranguibel, Production director at Disney Media Distribution, anticipated that the series will start when Monzón is already in jail and will show the most important aspects of his life.
