Now, probably at Natpe, we are going to present it, and we are giving in exclusive to PRODU everything we are developing with her,» he said.

It was a very fun experience, you probably have seen how funny Larry and his family are. We specialize in unscripted docu-reality. We also are offering production services for scripted fiction to Telemundo, Apple TV+, but we specialize in unscripted original projects.”

We have one with the writer Sergio Jablón, a six-chapter miniseries. Alexis Serrato, who is managing the development department, also works with us. She has five fiction projects that are in her portfolio, and that we are looking to place by 2022.”
