Sony Int’l on case with ‘Simuladores’

TV drama being prepped for Brazil, Italy

BUENOS AIRES — Sony Pictures Intl. has acquired global rights to produce and distribute private-eye series “Los Simuladores,” one of Argentina’s hottest shows, in a six-figure deal with broadcaster Telefe.

Sony inked with Telefe, which aired the two seasons of the series, and Tao Film, the production company owned by show’s helmer-scribe Damian Szifron and its four stars.

Sony is prepping versions of the series for Brazil and Italy, according to Telefe.

The series concerns four mercenaries who solve cases for average people. “Simuladores” averaged 30 rating points each episode on Telefe, making it one of the most-watched shows of the year.

Szifron plans to make a movie in 2004, his sophomore effort after “El fondo del mar” (Deep in the Ocean), a comedy that scooped an audience award at the 2003 Mar del Plata Film Festival.

Telefe also is preparing to co-produce with Sony an Argentine version of “The Nanny” to air in 2004.
