Principal

Two years after launching a U.S production operation, behind Toronto 2018 hit “Gloria Bell,” Larraín’s Fabula remains one of Latin America’s fastest-growing companies. Headed up by Larraín and his producer-director brother, Pablo, the shingle is now opening offices in Mexico, releasing five movies in 2019 and moving energetically into production services, notably for Netflix (Claudia Llosa’s horror take “Distancia De Rescate”) and HBO (the series “Los Espookys,” starring Fred Armisen). Its biggest new push has been into high-end international drama series. Announced in February, a first-look production-distribution pact with Fremantle has kicked off with the female-centered thriller “La Jauría,” with Daniela Vega, star of Fabula’s Oscar-winning “A Fantastic Woman.” Meanwhile, the company is teaming with Amazon and Gaumont on soccer corruption-themed “El Presidente.”
