16 de julio de 2013

Producciones RTI and Pomodoro Stories announced a development and first look deal in which Pomodoro will supply RTI with script formats from around the world that would help RTI meet its production commitments with Televisa and RCN in the coming years. Additionally, Pomodoro will distribute internationally the new productions through its partner Beta Film, as well as co-finance and co-produce the projects that may come from this joint venture. Hugo León Ferrer, Senior VP of Development of RTI, said that although the focus will continue to be telenovelas, the deal covers all fiction genres in Spanish around the world. To consolidate this partnership, Pomodoro Stories will immediately move to offices adjacent to those of RTI. Patricio Wills, President of RTI, and Brendan Fitzgerald, General Director of Pomodoro Stories, have worked together in the past on novelas for Telemundo such as El zorro, la espada y la rosa and Doña Bárbara. “This development deal is an important step for RTI towards the acquisition of successful worldwide formats, which will be adapted to Spanish-language TV,” said Wills. Fitzgerald, said: "It’s a source of inspiration to think what RTI and Pomodoro can accomplish together in partnership with Televisa and RCN on one end and with Beta Film on the other.”
