Univision’s UniMas Nabs ‘Nino Santo’ Drama From Canana, Sierra/Engine

Univision’s UniMas network has acquired two drama series from distributor Sierra/Engine Television — one from Mexico, one from the U.S.

“Nino Santo” follows a group of young doctors who are sent to remote villages in Mexico where they encounter a cult headed by an enigmatic faith healer. Series hails from the Canana production banner run by Gabriel Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna (pictured), Julian Levin and Pablo Cruz. The show airs in Mexico on Canal 11.

“SAF3” is an actioner starring Dolph Lundgren about an elite rescue task force working in Malibu (although it’s filmed in South Africa). English-language version of the show airs now in syndication in the U.S. and has been sold widely overseas. Series is spearheaded by “Baywatch” creator Greg Bonann, Emmett/Furla Films and Sierra/Engine.

“Acquiring rights for series such as ‘SAF3’ and ‘Nino Santo’ speaks to our commitment to delivering the best alternative programming on UniMas,” said Alberto Ciurana, Univision’s prexy of programming and content.
