LatAm distributors Telemundo Internacional and Caracol Televisión announced today at Mipcom they will coproduce the popular story of a drug dealer known as "El Señor de los Cielos" for TV.
LatAm distributors Telemundo Internacional and Caracol Televisión revealed details about an important coproduction agreement inked during Mipcom's first day, which was covered by ttv.
The deal was signed yesterday with the presence of Marcos Santana, president at Telemundo Internacional, Gonzalo Córdoba Mallarino, Caracol Televisión's new president, Angélica Guerra, VP Internacional at Caracol and Joshua Mintz, EVP of Fiction and general manager at Telemundo Studios.
"We believe it will be an unprecedented production", Santana stated, and added that content quality will prevail over the premiere date.
"We will start producing in January, and from then on, everything will depend on the moment we consider the quality of the product is ready to launch", Santana assured.
The series, which will tell the story about one of the most popular drug dealers in Latin America, will feature 60 episodes and will be shooted on locations in Mexico City, Bogota, Medellin, Los Angeles and Miami, whereas the production team will be comprised of staff from both companies.

Both companies will handle distribution rights, even though, according to Santana, the division of territories remains undefined.
