Colombian shingle Dynamo Prods. is living up to its name, firing up a full slate of film and TV projects as producers or as production service providers.

Led by CEO Andres Calderon, Dynamo’s upcoming slate is led by a $5 million feature film with Spain’s TVE and Telefonica Espana titled “Orbita,” with principal photography targeted for January next year. Other details are still under wraps.

Other pics in development include the Colombian remake of Mexican blockbuster “Nosotros Los Nobles” with helmer/scribe Felipe Martinez Amador directing and Argentina’s Patagonik co-producing; romantic comedy “Me Quiere Mucho, Poquito o Nada”; and a co-production with Touche Films for Ecuadors’s Enchufe TV, “Presentame a la Gringa.”

Its TV projects include “Cokeway,” helmed by Alejandro Fernandez Almendras, “Tenebris,” directed by Rigoberto Castaneda and “Femina,” by Felipe Martínez.

Two high profile projects it serviced and executive produced are set to debut in August: Phoenix Pictures’ “The 33,” which reenacts the Chilean mining disaster of 2010, and Netflix drug crime drama series “Narcos.”

“The 33,” directed by Patricia Riggen and starring Antonio Banderas, is the first international pic to tap the new cash rebate incentives for location shoots in Colombia.

Anticipation is high for the October debut of Dynamo’s “Que Viva la Musica” and comedy caper “Detective Maranon” by newcomer Salomon Simhon, made with Caracol TV, which opens November 26.

“Detective Maranon” and “La Rectora,” from Mateo Stivelberg, are part of the pact between Caracol and Dynamo to back new talent.

    Caracal did a great job on “El Patron Del Mal” about Pablo Escobar. It would be great to see true story about the Cali Cartel.
