Red Arrow International has licensed the rights to its hit crime series Falco, based on the award-winning scripted format The Last Cop, to Latin American production powerhouse Dynamo (Narcos), and Spiral International, for a new Hispanic version.
The series will be showrun and directed by acclaimed Mexican filmmaker, director and screenwriter Ernesto Contreras (Blue Eyelids, I Dream in Another Language, The Obscure Spring). Falco is currently in pre-production and is set to go into production in Mexico City at the end of November 2017. The 15x60’ series will launch with a feature-length pilot. News on Latin America channel sales and casting to follow.
In Falco, the year is 1994 and Detective Alex Falco has it all, a loving wife, a newborn daughter and his dream job. But one day out in the field, he is shot in the head and ends up in a coma. Falco opens his eyes again in 2018 to a changed world, where everything he once knew is no longer as it was.
“Falco is a powerful and poignant story about a detective’s determination to hunt down his assailant, find his family, and get his life back on track. Ernesto Contreras is a master filmmaker and we could not be more thrilled to be working with Dynamo and Spiral International to see Falco brought to life in Spanish,” said Henrik Pabst, Red Arrow International.
“We are very happy to be partnering with Red Arrow and Spiral to bring this great internationally acclaimed format to Latin American audiences. When adapting the scripts we were careful in keeping the unique strength of the original series, while adding a rich Latin American context and texture to the story and characters. I have no doubt that Falco will be another powerful Dynamo product, very much in line with our international premium content strategy,” added Diego Ramírez Schrempp, partner at Dynamo.
Red Arrow International will distribute the Latin American production of Falco worldwide.
