Sony Pictures Television (SPT) and Teleset have begun production on Metástasis, the original series adaptation of the smash hit U.S. drama Breaking Bad for Latin American audiences. Metástasis, the first adaptation of the award-winning series by SPT, is shooting in and around the capital city of Bogota, including the traditional neighborhoods of Teusaquillo and Nicolas de Federman. In the US Hispanic market Metástasis will be shown on Univision. Multiple Ariel Award-winning actor Damián Alcázar, known for his performances in Satanás, El Crimen del Padre Amaro and El Narco, has been cast in the role of Mexican drug kingpin Tuco Salamanca. The previously-announced cast includes Diego Trujillo (El Capo and A Corazón Abierto) as Walter Blanco; Roberto Urbina (Correo de Inocentes) as Walter’s accomplice, José Miguel Rosas; Sandra Reyes (El Cartel and Pedro el Escamoso) as Walter’s wife, Cielo; and Julián Arango (El Cartel and Betty la Fea) as Walter’s brother-in-law and Colombian narcotics agent, Henry Navarro. “We have spent an extraordinary amount of time developing a compelling, rich story with incredible production quality,” says Angélica Guerra, senior vice president and managing director, production, Latin America and U.S. Hispanic for SPT. “We have not only put together a world-class cast, but are also shooting in some of the country’s most magnificent locations. Metástasis is going to take audiences for a beautiful and thrilling ride.” Metástasis has been cleared in most major Spanish-speaking markets.
