Spain’s Grupo Secuoya, Fabula Team on Latin American TV Channel

In a bid to gain a stronger foothold in the Latin American market, Spain’s Grupo Secuoya has joined forces with Chilean production shingle Fabula (“Gloria,” “Crystal Fairy”) to launch Fabula TV.

The move dovetails with Grupo Secuoya’s plans to further expand in the region with Colombia and Mexico next in its sights. Last year, the Madrid-based content producer and distributor acquired a controlling 51% stake in Peru’s Imizu Prods. and opened offices in Miami.

Run by Pablo (above) and Juan de Dios Larrain, Fabula is best-known for its festival-friendly pics but it has also produced crime drama series “Profugos” for HBO, the only Chilean production company to work with the feevee. Helmer Pablo Larrain (“No”) is prepping his next project, a pic about Chilean poet-diplomat Pablo Neruda. In 2013, Fabula partnered with Jeff Skoll’s Participant Media and two of the region’s highest-profile players, Mexico’s Canana Films and Colombia’s Dynamo, to create the Participant PanAmerica film fund.

With regards to the Secuoya deal, “The idea is to make fiction, docus and entertainment shows for the Chilean market, primarily,” said producing partner Juan de Dios Larrain, who says they’ve been simultaneously developing four shows.

The joint venture will focus on the production of content and the distribution of Secuoya’s extensive catalog in Chile and Latin America, which includes fiction, reality shows and documentaries, both original and acquired.

Grupo Secuoya is one of the most prolific suppliers of content to general entertainment channels in Spain. This month alone, it placed six shows in various channels in Spain, including 19th century police drama “Victor Ros” for pubcaster TVE-1 and sitcom “Algo que Celebrar” for Antena 3.
