Spanish-Language ‘Breaking Bad’ in the Works

Putting paid to rumors, Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has unveiled plans to produce a Spanish-lingo adaptation of the AMC hit “Breaking Bad” for Univision sister channel, UniMas in the U.S.

Colombian production powerhouse Teleset, which is 50% owned by SPT, will produce the skein, renamed “Metastasis.”

The mainly Colombian cast includes Diego Trujillo (“El Capo” and “A Corazan Abierto”) as the lead character, Walter Blanco; Roberto Urbina (“Che: Part 1” and “Correo de Inocentes”) as Walter’s partner, Jose Miguel Rosas; Sandra Reyes (“El Cartel” and “Pedro el Escamoso”) as Walter’s wife, Cielo; and Julian Arango (“El Cartel” and “Betty la Fea”) as Walter’s brother-in-law and Colombian narcotics agent, Henry Navarro.

Based on the multiple Emmy-winning drama now entering its fifth and final season in July in the U.S., “Metastasis” tracks a mild chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal cancer and ventures into the netherworld of drugs and crime to pay his medical bills and to ensure his family’s well being.

“Critics and audiences love ‘Breaking Bad’ and its original take on the drug dealing business,” says Angelica Guerra, senior vice president and managing director, production, Latin America and U.S. Hispanic for SPT. “It is a very relevant story for all audiences, produced with the highest standards, in spectacular locations with the best talent in the region.”

“Breaking Bad” is the latest hit to be adapted by industry pioneer SPT, whose successful track record includes local productions of “Married…with Children” in 12 territories including Colombia and Israel, “Everybody Loves Raymond” in five territories including the Middle East and Russia, “The King of Queens” in Bulgaria and Russia, as well as “I Dream of Jeannie” in India.
