Roures made headlines when he swooped in to produce Woody Allen’s Spain-set “Rifkin’s Festival” after the filmmaker was dropped by Amazon Studios. It’s just one of an array of high-profile productions from his Barcelona-based prodco Mediapro Studios, launched in April 2019, that includes “Official Competition,” starring Antonio Banderas and Penélope Cruz, along with TV series for Amazon (“Six Dreams,” “All or Nothing,” “Fernando”) and HBO (“The Young Pope”). In 2019, the studio had 39 productions shooting in Italy, Finland, Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and Chile in addition to Spain. The studio is a division of Mediapro, the multibillion-dollar international media empire Roures founded in 1994 that also houses Spanish broadcast network La Sexta, soccer-themed channels in France and Belgium as well as a sports-rights business.
