The Mediapro Studio, through its production house Globomedia, has signed a collaboration deal with writer Lorenzo Silva to adapt fiction TV content inspired by his novels.
The first two projects will be a fiction series based on the book Si esto es una mujer, written with Noemi Trujillo; and a series about his famous characters, Ruben Bevilacqua and Virginia Chamorro.
Silva himself will be responsible with Globomedia for the adaptations by fronting the writing teams for each one.
In the case of Si esto es una mujer, he will also do it in collaboration with Noemí Trujillo, co-author of the new fiction saga, starring Inspector Manuela Mauri, who in this novel investigates a chilling case that highlights the worst blemishes of our society.
With regard to the adaptation as a television series of the cases investigated by Bevilacqua and Chamorro, Lorenzo Silva and Globomedia's project will be based on a plot that will unite two of the titles published to date.
"It is a pride to announce this collaboration with Lorenzo Silva. We admire his career full of stories where he combines the mystery with relevant social issues and everything with a human point of view about the character," said Javier Pons, Globomedia's General Director and Television Director of The Mediapro Studio.
"We are sure that all his current fans, plus those who come for the first time to the series that he will create with Noemí Trujillo and our team, will discover -as has never been seen on television- the scope of his talent".
"It is a great joy for me to have reached an agreement to launch a series on Bevilacqua and Chamorro with the guarantee, experience and industrial robustness that the project provides for The Mediapro Studio and Globomedia," said Lorenzo Silva.
"There have been several projects that over the past twenty years have been raised in relation to these two characters, who are for me more than fictional creatures, but none came to set in the way I would have liked and I think it would have liked many of its readers."
"This is an excellent opportunity to settle that outstanding account with them and with myself, proposing an audiovisual story that allows exploring the potential that as a writer I have found in them to offer a complete and complex account of my time and my place."
Author of more than 30 novels and numerous works of non-fiction, as well as stories and titles of children and youth narrative, Lorenzo Silva, one of the best best sellers of the Spanish creative scene, also has experience as a scriptwriter of fiction and documentary, including the cinematographic adaptations of his novels.
He was nominated for the 2004 Goya for the script of The weakness of the Bolshevik and is coauthor of 20-N. The last days of Franco, who received the award for the best TV movie of the Television Academy in 2009.
Awarded as a writer with many awards, including the Planet for the Meridian brand, seventh novel of the series Bevilacqua and Chamorro, and Nadal, for The impatient alchemist, second novel of the saga, Silva is a reference of the current Spanish narrative and a pre-eminent author among the contemporary classics of genre literature.
