AMC Networks International Picks Up Canal Plus Show ‘Ouro’ for Spain, Portugal

AMC Networks International Iberia has acquired “Ouro,” the adventure-thriller series created by Fabien Nury for French pay-TV channel Canal Plus.

Sold by Newen Distribution, “Ouro” was directed by Kim Chapiron (“Dogpound”) and Philippe Triboit (“Spiral”) and produced by Mascaret Films.

Set in the Guyanese forest, “Ouro” follows the journey of Vincent, a 20-year-old geology student from Paris who goes to French Guyana to do an internship at a gold mining company and drifts into the dangerous world of gold trafficking.

The series will start airing on AMC Spain in January, followed by a roll-out in Portugal a month later.

“We are thrilled to bring this fantastic adventure drama to our Portuguese and Spanish audience” said Pilar de las Casas, VP of Cinema and Documentary Channels at AMC Networks International Iberia.

“Ouro” was acquired last week by Sony Pictures Television Networks for Continental Europe.
