Entertainment industry leader Chris Albrecht and award-winning producer Jorge Granier have announced the establishment of Rubicon Global Media. The new venture is designed to aggregate intellectual property from Latin America and Spain and transform it into content with global appeal, as well as producing story driven content for Latin American audiences.
In addition, the company confirmed the creation of a strategic partnership with Secuoya Studios, Spanish language content production studio and distribution company and division of Madrid-based Secuoya Content Group. "This is a first of its kind deal for Secuoya Studios, and I am thrilled to partner with Chris and Jorge as we expand our leadership position beyond the development and production of Spanish language content," Secuoya Studios President James Costos said. "It has always been my passion to bridge Spain and the U.S. through the power of storytelling."
Through the collaboration, Secuoya will provide development funding and deficit financing for select Rubicon Global Media projects. The terms of the deal were not disclosed."Latin American content has an ever-expanding audience, and we are excited to transform that IP into high quality, story driven content with worldwide appeal," Granier said. "Our mission is to showcase the rich Latin heritage while creating shows and films that transcend borders, unite cultures, and captivate audiences."
Overseen by former HBO executive and U.S. Ambassador to Spain James Costos, Secuoya Studios specializes in fiction series, docuseries, unscripted television, and feature films focused on the Latin American, Spanish, and Spanish-speaking U.S. markets. The studio, with offices in Latin America, Miami, Los Angeles, and Spain, together with its Commercial and Distribution arm led by industry veteran Sergio Pizzolante, is projected to invest over $200 million on content this year and has several projects in development with global platforms and distributors such as Amazon, TelevisaUnivision, and NBCUniversal. "Our studio is uniquely positioned to both invest in creating premium content and provide international productions with unmatched production services in Spain, and I look forward to continuing this journey with Jorge," added Sergio Pizzolante, Secuoya's President of Secuoya Studios Commercial and Distribution.
