SPT Prods. Russia builds slate

It's making three shows for region via its Lean-M

LONDON

Sony Pictures Television Prods. Russia has won three commissions from local webs based on shows from Canada, Latin America and Poland.

All three will be produced in Moscow by SPT’s Lean-M.

Russia’s TV-3 will air 24 episodes of supernatural drama “Lost Girl” this year. Show was originally produced by Prodigy Pictures for Showtime Canada and airs on Syfy in the U.S.

Domashny Channel has greenlit 16 episodes of SPT’s Latin American dramedy “Los caballeros las prefieren brutas.” Show was developed for Caracol TV in Colombia and SPT’s Latin American pan-regional channel Sony Entertainment Television.

Ukrainian broadcaster Inter has ordered 60 episodes of Polish soap “First Love,” which will be stripped during weekdays. SPT Prods. Russia acquired the rights from ATM Media Gruppa in Poland, where the original series aired on Polsat.

SPT Prods. Russia managing director Maria Smirnova said, “The Russian market is not getting any easier, but we are highly experienced producers with a strong track record of producing local versions of scripted shows.

“The Russian version of ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ is a massive success with more than 260 episodes already aired,” she added. “In a country with 150 million people and a growing number of digital channels, the opportunities are considerable.”
