Sony repurposes in Spain

Studio revamps skein for Cuatro

Sony is repurposing Argentine fiction format “Los Simuladores” (The Simulators) for Spanish broadcaster Cuatro.

Format turns on a team of four mercenaries who solve their clients’ complaints via pretense. The problems turn on such everyday injustices or tragedies as a man’s pinkslipping by his company because of his age.

“Simulators” has just begun to shoot in high definition in Madrid. Cuatro will air the series, made up of 50-minute episodes, over the upcoming months.

The Spanish reversion will star three Spanish actors and one Argentine thesp from the original show, it added.

Originated by Argentine helmer-writer Damian Szifron, the second season of the private eye series played to huge ratings on top-rated Argentine broadcaster Telefe over 2003.

That same year, Sony Pictures Intl. inked with Telefe and Szifron’s label Tao Film to take global rights to distribute and produce the format. The production is Sony’s second for Cuatro: Last week Cuatro confirmed that Madrid-based Sony Pictures Televisiones Producciones de Espana is adapting the original U.S. scripts of U.S. sitcom “Married … With Children” to air on Cuatro later this year.
