Argentina’s TVP Boards Globo’s Epic Spanish-lingo Production ‘Supermax’

TVP joins, Globo, showrunner-helmer Daniel Burman and Mexico’s TV Azteca

Pubcaster Television Publica de Argentina (TVP) has boarded Globo’s epic Spanish-language production “Supermax,” to which Argentine filmmaker Daniel Burman (“The Lost Embrace”) is attached as showrunner, director and co-producer via his shingle Oficina Burman. TV Azteca has snagged the Mexican TV rights.

As a co-producer, TVP has secured Argentine broadcasting rights to the high-end thriller series. Argentina’s minister of media and public content, Hernan Lombardi, joined with Raphael Correa Netto, Globo’s executive director of international business, and with Burman to unveil the new pact.

“This co-production is part of a strategic vision aimed at generating high-quality projects for the region by tapping our wealth of human talent and premier locations,” said Lombardi. “It’s a starting point toward spurring our local industries and bringing our audiovisual productions to the global market,” he added.

The first season of 10 one-hour episodes will start shooting at the end of April in Globo’s studios in Brazil, to be followed by location shoots in the northeast of Argentina.

Supermax” is an evolution of our long presence in the Latin American and Hispanic markets. We want to take the knowhow we have accumulated in 50 years of work, and our passion for storytelling, to help renew and to encourage the development of the creative environment in Latin America. And to count on a partner such as the TVP in this process is very important for Globo,” said Correa Netto.

The cast includes Brazil’s Bruno Gagliasso (“Caminho das Indias,” “The Dognapper”), Argentine thesps Cecilia Roth (“All About My Mother,” “I’m So Excited”), Juan Pablo Geretto, Guillermo Pfenning, Alexia Moyano and Spanish actor Santiago Segura (“Torrente”).

The reality TV- fiction hybrid tracks eight participants of a TV show set at an isolated maximum security prison who are abandoned to their fate by the show’s second episode.
