Beta Entertainment Spain, the Spanish production company affiliated with the German cinema and TV giant Beta Film, is producing a new spin-off for Mediaset España based on the successful docu-reality show "Los Gipsy Kings." For the past ten years, this show has been following the lives of different Gypsy families in various cities across Spain. The new series, titled "Dos Bodas Gipsy” (Two Gipsy Weddings) consisting of eight episodes, is set to premiere this September on Mediaset channels.
This time, the reality show takes a comedic approach to depict the daily lives of a single Gypsy dynasty, the Jimenez family. Their youngest daughter, who has recently become a mother, is getting married, prompting her parents to renew their wedding vows, 25 years after their first ceremony.
The series, executive produced by Javier Pérez de Silva, Jacobo Eireos, and Christian Gockel, marks the eleventh season of the format. Over the past decade, it has consistently exceeded the average viewership of Mediaset's second channel, Cuatro, and garnered a massive social media following for its characters.
"The Gypsy universe is incredibly interesting and spectacular. It is a world that exists right next to us, yet it is very different from our own, and we often fail to notice it. The women in this world are groundbreaking, strong-willed, social media influencers, and highly entertaining. They may seem like characters from a comedy, but they are real, flesh-and-blood individuals. Their proximity and their way of speaking and behaving make them great television personalities,” said Javier Pérez de Silva, CEO of Beta España and executive producer of the series.
Mediaset handles the international sales of the product, and together with Beta España, they offer versions of the format that can be adapted to any territory interested in exploring the Gypsy culture, which has previously resonated well with formats like "Big Fat Gipsy Wedding.”
Beta Entertainment Spain is a key player in the Spanish factual, reality, and factual entertainment production landscape. They produce different shows, including the reality series "Wags" for Mediaset, the TV series "Se acabó: el mundo de María Jiménez" for Atresmedia, "11 tiros" and "Zero Waste Chef" for HBO Max, "Cómo funciona Madrid" for Telemadrid, and the mini-documentary series "Papá cumple 80 años" for TVE.
