Sony TV, Caracol partner

Duo ink three-year pact for shows

Sony Pictures Television and Colombia’s Caracol Television have inked a three-year pact to co-produce at least two primetime skeins a year for Caracol.

The commercial broadcaster will also produce local versions of shows from SPT’s scripted format catalog.

Accord builds on a long-running relationship between the two.

Last year, SPT co-produced its first telenovela with Caracol, “Amar y temer” (To Love and to Fear), centered on a romance between a 1950s feminist leader and a boxer during a time of political upheaval in Colombia. It is currently No. 2 in its timeslot.

In 2009, Caracol and Sony Entertainment Television, Sony’s pan-regional channel, co-produced skein “Los caballeros las prefieren brutas” (Gentlemen Prefer Them Dumb), based on the novel by Isabella Santo Domingo.

Caracol remade SPT sitcom “Who’s the Boss” in 2006 and “Married With Children” the previous year, with the latter becoming the first U.S. sitcom localized for Colombia.

Announcement was made by Caracol TV prexy Carlos Alejandro Perez-Davila and Donna Cunningham, SPT’s managing director and exec VP of Latin America and U.S. Hispanic production.
