Viacom International Studios (VIS) announced an exclusive agreement with renowned, multi-award-winning Spanish-American film and TV producer Frida Torresblanco, and her production company, Braven Films, LLC for the development and production of content in a first-look deal.
Torresblanco is a cinematic maven respected for her vast experience and work with great directors such as Alfonso Cuarón and Guillermo del Toro. She produced The Assassination of Richard Nixon, The Dancer Upstairs, Rudo y Cursi, and Pan’s Labyrinth, the winner of three Oscars and multiple international awards. In addition to amassing several successes, she currently runs Braven Films, alongside her partners Eric Laufer and Giovanna Randall, together producing cinema with universal appeal, and developing content through films, television series, and documentaries.
Torresblanco is currently developing a slate of films and television programs with talents such as Rachel Weisz, Ethan Hawke, Alessandro Nivola, John Curran, James Kent, and Björn Runge. Her last production, Disobedience starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams, was released by Bleecker Street in 2018.
“Joining forces with a talent like Frida, a producer so creative that she has been able to influence the film and television industry in such an impactful way, is how we continue to generate quality content for international distribution,” stated Federico Cuervo, SVP and Head of Viacom International Studios.
“This partnership is a testament to VIS’ pursuit to forge significant exclusive partnerships that allow us to further grow our production slate, and ensure its universal appeal.”
Torresblanco remarked, “My goal is to build the bridge between Latin America, Spain, and the rest of Europe and the United States to help create high-quality universal stories from voices who will make a real difference. Partnering with VIS is a unique opportunity to work with one of the most successful enterprises in the business.”
“I can’t wait to combine both new and veteran talent to bring these original series to life with this innovative team: Dario Turovelzky, Federico Cuervo and Sebastian Vibes. I couldn’t be happier with the brilliant collaboration.”
