The series Paquita la del Barrio represents the producer Marcel Ferrer’s first project with Sony/Teleset for the new Imagen TV, since, as he said, it will be part of the new production both companies will prepare for 2018, that will cover a topic different from the bioseries, in the aim to diversify the contents on TV.
“Although biographic series are trendy, it is important to diversify contents, and both Sony/Teleset, as well as Imagen TV are betting on this. Some projects are contemplated and after Paquita la del Barrio, we will produce a new series with totally different topics, supporting the grid of the emerging TV station” commented the producer.
He assured that this production represents the first Project they make in the biographic series format and the first for Imagen TV: “It was a challenge to make it, because I had never worked in that format, nor in a 60-episode one, that are today considered the new telenovelas, managing to merge cinema with TV”.
Ferrer worked on other projects such as El Albergue and La Clínica for Cadenatres, and for Canal Once he produced Bienes Raíces, Me Mueves, and in cinema, the film Estado de Gracia.
Paquita la del Barrio is aired Monday to Friday at 8pm on Imagen TV.
