The Colombian company is joining forces with Somos Productions for the premium thriller about human trafficking.
Caracol Televisión and Somos Productions announced a production agreement for the premium series Juegos Interrumpidos, created and developed by Fenixx III.
The Colombian company joins the project presented to the market at Mipcom 2019 by Somos Productions, the production arm of Somos Group. Now, they announced that the series “will be available soon for the international market.”
Juegos Interrumpidos is a 12-episode action-drama thriller whose main theme is human trafficking, specifically the theft of children for illegal adoptions.
“We are very excited to join forces with new allies in our commitment to bringing universal stories to life that can reach every corner of the world. Together with Somos Productions, we have generated a solid distribution model that represents an opportunity for both companies,” said Lisette Osorio, VP of International Sales at Caracol Televisión.
Luis Villanueva, President and CEO of Somos Productions, expressed his satisfaction with the agreement: “Juegos interruptos has the advantage of solid partners, with proven experience and knowledgeable about the television business in both production and distribution, apart from attractive of the plot and its format, we are in line with content consumption trends in all windows and there is no doubt that we will deliver an entertaining and interesting product, with high production values”.
Juegos Interrumpidos tells a powerful love story between a mother and her adopted son. Karen, a young and successful blogger unable to conceive, accepts her husband’s invitation to adopt in Colombia. Along the way, she discovers with pain that her son, the fruit of a supposedly legal adoption, is the child of kidnapping, with the theft and psychological destruction of his true identity, so she embarks on the adventure and the consequences of investigating the dark world of child trafficking.
This story, which denounces one of the most shocking crimes of the present time, provides its audience with effective tools so that minors themselves and their families can identify the way in which trafficking gangs operate.
