Endemol enters ‘Hospital’

Show to air on America TV starting June 17

BUENOS AIRES — Endemol Argentina has signed on to co-produce “Hospital publico” (Public Hospital), with plans to export the “ER”-like miniseries via the global production network of parent company Endemol.

“Hospital” will air Wednesdays at 11 p.m. on fourth-ranked America TV beginning June 17.

Spark will handle artistic production, while Endemol Argentina will supply artistic and commercial assistance and infrastructure, as well as handling foreign sales.

Endemol, known for formats such as “Big Brother” and “Fear Factor,” is part of Admira, the media division of Spain’s Telefonica.

Production is Spark’s first since it was formed earlier this year by veteran ad man and fledgling helmer Edi Flehner, finance man Ramiro Mazzeo and Alejandro Suaya, a former exec of Walt Disney’s Buena Vista Intl.
