Endemol Shine Boomdog and Somos Productions are developing the first-ever scripted TV series based on Saint Juan Diego, the first Mexican-born Roman Catholic Saint.
Juan Diego: The Story of Guadalupe will be produced by Endemol Shine Boomdog and Somos Productions and sold globally by Somos Distribution. Endemol Shine Boomdog and Somos announced last year the joint development of a TV series based on famed Latin boy band Menudo, Súbete a Mi Moto—The History of Menudo.
“We are thrilled to join our friends at Somos and bring the miraculous story of Saint Juan Diego to television. The Story of Guadalupe is widely known across all of Latin America and throughout the world and our series will showcase Juan Diego’s truly remarkable journey to becoming the first indigenous saint of the Americas,” says Endemol Shine Boomdog CEO Alejandro Rincón.
Luis Villanueva, CEO de Somos Group, Somos Productions and Somos Distribution declared, “We are very excited about our involvement in the production of a story that is so loved by all Spanish speaking peoples and people of faith and Somos Distribution has the proven experience, recognition and strengths to manage the placement of the series worldwide. San Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin is the base for the devotion for The Virgin of Guadalupe and the best way to honor our roots and traditions. For us is a responsibility to show this part of our heritage and as we do with all our products, we guarantee that this series will make all of us proud and will be enjoyed by audiences worldwide.”
