Present at Mipcom in Cannes, Atresmedia International Sales signed a deal for its successful original production with the region’s largest media company.
The Series Atresmedia catalogue continues its expansion beyond Spain’s borders, becoming the most successful international seal.
Presunto Culpable, the original series of Atresmedia TV, will be seen in the territory of MENA (Middle East and North Africa) thanks to the agreement reached at Mipcom (which is being held in Cannes) between Atresmedia International Sales and MBC Group, the largest and leading media company in the region.
In this way, Presunto Culpable continues its successful international journey, after triumphing in Asia, where it managed to win last June with the prestigious award for Best Foreign Series in the 25th edition of the Shanghai International Festival. A category in which, in other editions, posters such as ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Babylon Berlin’, ‘Breaking bad’, ‘Homeland’ or ‘Downton Abbey’ have won.
With this agreement for the arrival of Presunto Culpable in MENA territory, the productions of the Series Atresmedia label are consolidated as the Spanish fictions of greater penetration in the Arab world, with successes in this region such as La casa de papel, Vis a vis or Pulsaciones.
Presunto Culpable is an original serie of Atresmedia Television starring Miguel Angel Muñoz, Susi Díaz, Elvira Mínguez and Alejandra Onieva. The fiction premiered last September and, after the broadcast of its 13 episodes, averaged 1.9 million viewers with 13.2%, making it the most watched serie of its day and one of the most viewed of this season. The series also worked perfectly in deferred, averaging nearly 350,000 views per chapter.
Produced by Atresmedia Television, in collaboration with Boomerang TV (Mar de plástico, El tiempo entre costuras), Presunto Culpable is a thriller that revolves around an unsolved crime, where everything is questioned and in which the innocence or not of the protagonist will be the main plot.
It’s directed by Alejandro Bazzano, Alberto Ruiz Rojo and Menna Fité. Javier Holgado, Carlos Vila and Susana López Rubio are responsible for their script and Josu Inchaustegui is their cinematographer. Pascal Gaigne, a recent winner of a Goya, is the author of the original music of the series.
