“This project represents an important bet for us to position ourselves as a studio beyond the Argentinean market. From the books to the direction, including talents and the aesthetics of the making, it is conceived as cinema-quality content that can travel around the world. We trust the work capability jointly with Mediapro to raise the bar,” added Guillermo Borensztein, Content Sales and Co-production VP at Viacom International Media Networks Américas.
Viacom will have exclusive distribution and exploitation rights in America, and Mediapro will distribute throughout the rest of the world. Both companies hope to make a franchise with the upcoming seasons in other cities around the world.
