Dani Who?

“We want to produce in Spain, too,” said Federico Cuervo, SVP and general director of VIS. “The idea is to produce anywhere where it truly makes sense for the story to take place," he added.
On the other hand, he highlighted the recent agreement sealed with the awarded Argentinean director Juan José Campanella. The deal, that has a duration of two years, contemplates the development and production of content for the screens of Viacom or third parties.
