SOMOS DISTRIBUTION PRESENTS AN OFFER OF SUCCESSFUL DRAMAS AT MIP CANCUN
SOMOS Distribution, the global content distribution company part of the SOMOS Group and led by Luis Villanueva, will attend MIPCancún with an offer that includes a selection of high-profile television dramas, as well as series and humorous content. Apart from this proposal, SOMOS Distribution presents its own SOMOS Productions projects, a SOMOS Group production company. The event, to be held from November 13 to 16 in the city of Cancun (Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort), unites international distributors with buyers; and producers with commissioned publishers to forge new partnerships across streaming, cable and broadcast platforms in Latin America and US Hispanic television.
Among the highlights of SOMOS Distribution's offer is the Turkish drama Love for Rent (Kiralik Ask), which consists of 202 episodes in a dramatic story that ranked first on Turkish television. The series tells the story of the waitress Defne, who, with money problems, agrees to try to win the heart of businessman Ömer, but everything risks falling apart when her affections are divided between him and her partner Sinan. Other featured content is the Greek dramas Wild Bees and Sasmos. Wild Bees is a 125-episode drama, which generated high ratings in the local market, telling the story of three sisters (Eleni, Asimina and Drosso), who try to survive alone, while the richest landowner in the area wants his son, Sergios, to marry the eldest of the three girls (Eleni), to take charge of his properties. Sasmos, for its part, with 135 episodes and also with a story of great acceptance by the audience, is the drama of two families in conflict and two young people who experience love.
Expanding the offer of dramas, in telenovelas and series, SOMOS Distribution presents the successful catalog of RCTV Internacional, among which Mi Gorda Bella (178 episodes) stands out, telenovelas of proven success and in the tradition of Latin American telenovelas. In relation to the series, another very popular genre on current television, the company presents Almas en Pena (13 episodes). Almas in Pena enters the suspense genre, telling the story of some “youtubers” who get involved in horror stories and “banshees”.
Apart from these contents, the distribution company has great expectations with humorous programming, so much needed and accepted by the audience in current times. In this genre, SOMOS Distribution presents Enchufe.tv, the successful 72-episode Ecuadorian production that satirises everyday situations in an entertaining and hilarious way, parodying family parties, mother-child relationships, funny situations, conversations between friends, and other topics. The humor offering also includes Novocomedy shorts, more than 4,000 hours of non-verbal humorous shorts including candid cameras, home videos, children and animals in funny situations, magic acts and extreme sports bloopers. This format allows the use of these contents in various ways that lighten the programming or as extended spaces.
MIP Cancun will be attended by Francisco Villanueva, VP and COO of SOMOS Distribution, and Mariana Villanueva, Sales Director of the company.
