Sony Pictures Television Networks Acquires French Series ‘Ouro’ for Continental Europe

Sony Pictures Television Networks has acquired continental European rights to “Ouro,” an eight-part adventure/thriller series created by Fabien Nury and directed by Kim Chapiron, from Newen Distribution.

Commissioned by Canal Plus, the series was produced by Mascaret Films and stars Olivier Rabourdin (“Taken”) and Mathieu Spinosi (“Memories”). Set in the Guyanese forest, “Ouro” follows the journey of Vincent, a 20-year-old geology student from Paris who goes to French Guyana to do an internship at a gold mining company and drifts into the dangerous world of gold trafficking.

Newen’s head of international sales Nadia Chevallard said the series will certainly be a “great addition to Sony Pictures Television Networks’ slate of programming in the region….It’s unique mix of genres: It’s adventure, but also thriller and a modern Western set in the Amazonian jungle.”

“Ouro” was also acquired by AXN channel in Central and Eastern Europe, including Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.
