HBO Latin America, Lemon set up ‘Senor Avila’

Rozvar brothers will be showrunners on skein

MEXICO CITY HBO Latin America Originals is teaming up with Mexico’s Lemon Films to make “Senor Avila,” a Spanish-language series topped by Tony Dalton (“Colombiana”).

Originals has contracted Lemon to shoot 13, one-hour episodes of the skein, which centers around the title character’s double life as an insurance salesman with a family and an assassin.

HBO has not yet picked a date to launch the show, which will film in Mexico.

Dalton has a solid history working with HBO, where he had a recurring role in the series “Los simuladores,” and Lemon Films, with whom he has worked on multiple projects including “Matando Cabos” and “Love, Pain and Vice Versa.”

Billy and Fernando Rovzar at Lemon Films will run “Avila.” The Rovzar brothers were a key part of the production team for Will Farrell laffer “Casa de mi padre.”

Fernando will also take a spin as helmer, sharing duties with Alejandro Lozano and Alfredo Pineda. Walter and Marcelo Slavich (“Epitafios”) have been tapped to pen the series.

Anchored in Miami, HBO Latin America transmits in 23 nations in Latin America and the Caribbean and is pushing hard to make a name for itself in the region as a provider of upscale content.
