An undisclosed network in Spain picked up the remake rights for womanizer comedy “Lalola,” a production between DMG and Argentina’s Underground Contenidos.
Hyped as the next “Ugly Betty,” the 120-hour “Lalola” is airing to strong numbers in Argentina and Chile in separate versions. The finished version of the telenovela, set in a world of jet-set executives, has sold to Mexico, Venezuela, Russia and other territories.
DMG also sold hit teen telenovela “Patito Feo,” the story of an 11-year-old girl who thinks she’s ugly, in its ready-to-roll version to an unidentified net in France, with the option for a remake of the Ideas del Sur production.
The deals are valued at a combined $2.2 million that with options could reach $4.3 million, DMG said.
