Sales agent goes bilingual with U.K. house

Second Spanish shingle to be created in England this year

MADRID — In the latest Spanish drive into English-language pic production, Madrid-based sales agent Kevin Williams has set up the U.K.-based production house KWA/Fisher Prods.

A 50-50 joint venture with U.K. radio and theater writer Nick Fisher, KWA/Fisher is the second Spanish shingle to be created in England this year. Andres Vicente Gomez launched Lolafilms U.K. in May.

Spanish-lingo pics not enough

“When I set up Kevin Williams Associates (KWA) as a sales agent two years ago, it was clear it was not enough to be only handling Spanish-language films,” Williams said.

KWA/Fisher is currently prepping three projects. The most advanced, now casting, is the $8 million scientific thriller “The Clock” (aka “Killing Time”), a co-production with Dutch helmer-producer George Sluizer’s MGS Films.

‘A hot war thriller’

Other projects, also from Fisher screenplays, are the $6 million “Strange Soup” and the $5 million “Where Walls Once Stood.” Based on a BBC-commissioned radio play commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall, “Walls” is described by Williams as “a hot war thriller, ‘The Fourth Man’ meets the Russian Mafia.”

In the mid-’90s, Williams built Sogepaq into the strongest Spanish-lingo sales company. Created in 1997, the sales agency KWA handles an eclectic mix of Spanish- and English-lingo pics.
