Roures

CEO

For a long time, Roures was known as much for his political activism as for the content he turned out. But the Spanish producer, who as a youth was imprisoned under Franco’s dictatorship, has become so prolific in recent years, his entertainment work can’t help but dominate the conversation. As head of Media­Pro Studio, he has 68 TV projects in various stages of development and production, including “Venga, Juan” (HBO Max Spain) and “Cecilia” (Paramount+) and a limited-series adaptation of Susan Sheehan’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book “Is There No Place on Earth for Me?” that John Turturro will direct for Amazon. On the feature side, he has recent releases “The Good Boss,” which was shortlisted to represent Spain at the Oscars, and “Official Competition,” co-starring Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas.
