Both companies have worked together before, like in the case of the podcast series More Than a Movie: American Me
Trojan Horse Media and Exile Content Studio will join forces to produce premium content with international appeal, according to an article by Variety. The projects will include scripted, unscripted and audio content.
Both are young companies, with Exile Content Studio launching in 2019 and Trojan Horse just earlier this year. Nonetheless, both are accomplished studios, with Trojan, for example, getting to a hot start with the success of Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado and Menudo: Forever Young.
Both companies have also worked together before, premiering just recently the podcasts series More Than a Movie: American Me, about the true story of Edward James Olmos’s 1992 cult film classic, American Me.
“At Exile, we’re hyper focused on creating premium content that we believe Latino audiences will enjoy and that also makes a social impact. Having personally collaborated with Alex [Fumero] when we were at Fusion together, I knew our respective company’s capabilities would seamlessly take storytelling to another level for our joint target audiences,” said Nando Vila, head of content for Exile, quoted by Variety.
“Kareem and I are so proud of the work we’ve done together so far,” said Fumero, adding: “But I personally would’ve never been in the position I am as a producer and filmmaker were it not for the opportunity given to me 10 years ago by Isaac Lee and Nando Vila.”
