Dispatches: Benitez, Boca woo partners

Offer comes with launch of multiple DTT channels

Spanish film and TV producer Cesar Benitez is inviting Euro firms to take a stake in his Boca Group, and British-based media conglom Pearson is among those in the frame.

Benitez told Variety that he aims to close an equity deal this year or early in 2001, adding, “We’ll choose the partner which meshes best with our growth strategy, although we don’t rule out being completely independent.”

The Boca Group offers a foreign partner entry into Spanish TV and film production just as the launch of multiple DTT channels and cable outlets is set to hike the demand for domestic TV and movies.
