The FOX Networks Group Latin America original series has been one of the 10 shows selected for the official Canneseries competition. Other highlights include Spanish series Félix.
This Tuesday, Canneseries organizers unveiled the 10 shows selected for its official competition, highlighting the presence of Here on Earth, a FOX Networks Group Latin America original series which is the only Latin America project on the lineup.
Broadening the scope to include other Spanish-language productions, Spanish series Félix from Movistar+ appears as another one of the highlights.
Here on Earth is a Mexican series created by Gael García Bernal, Kyzza Terrazas and Jorge Dorante, produced by FOX Networks Group Latin America and La Corriente del Golfo.
It stars a big cast that includes names like Huerta Mejía, Alfonso Dosal, Daniel Giménez Cach, Luis Gnecco and Gael García Bernal himself, among others.
The premiere is expected for this year on FOX Premium and it will be internationally distributed by FOX Networks Group Content Distribution.
Félix, on its end, comes as the sixth original from Movistar+ in Spain. The show will premiere on April 6 on the company's platform.
The show is directed by Cesc Gay and stars Argentina's Leonardo Sbaraglia together with Mi hoa Lee, Ginés García Millán, Pere Arquillué, Irene Montalá and Pedro Casablanc in the titular roles. Its international distribution is handled by ITV Global Entertainment.
Furthermore, the event will also host a competition recognizing innovative digital series hailing from all over, including Colombia, Cuba and Spain.
Colombia is presenting series Camionero, from Jacques Toulemonde; Cuba will present Cabeza Madre from Édouard Salier; and Spain comes with If I Were You from Annaïs Schaaff, Javier Olivares and Javier Pascual for TVE.
