The Spanish company Onza Distribution will handle the international sales of the latest documentaries produced by its compatriot, Wakai Media, for Prime Video Spain. The titles in question focus on the elite of Spanish football and Moto GP competition, namely: "FC Barcelona: A New Era" (S1: 5x40’, S2: 4x40’, 2022-2023), "Marc Márquez: All In (5x40’, 2023)", and "Simeone: Living Match by Match" (6x40’, 2021). Let's review each of them.

Firstly, "FC Barcelona: A New Era" spans two seasons and documents the club's most challenging and tumultuous years as they strive to reclaim their lost throne. The team undergoes a complete reconstruction process with the sole objective of winning again. Xavi's arrival to lead the change, the new world-class signings, the emergence of young talents, and the definitive adaptation of the rest of the squad allow the team to aspire to greatness once more. The documentary captures how the fans regain the lost excitement thanks to the successful achievements during the 21-22 and 22-23 seasons.

Continuing with football, "Simeone: Living Match by Match" chronicles the achievements in the stellar career of Diego Pablo "cholo" Simeone, both as a player and coach of Atlético de Madrid, globally recognized for his way of understanding football. "Cholismo" is not just about tactics; it's almost a philosophy of life that goes beyond the game's strategy.

Finally, with the engines revved up, comes "Marc Márquez: All In". It delves into a decisive moment in the Moto GP star Marc Márquez's career. In this documentary, we witness how he will be forced to take drastic measures to try to win again. The series directly illustrates a pivotal year in Marc's life and career in first-person perspective. Fear, risk, suffering, the excitement of racing accompany this struggle, but above all, the infinite ambition of someone who wants to be champion again.

Béatrice Nouh, Head of Sales at Onza Distribution, highlighted the quality of the content: "We are very pleased to distribute Wakai's sports documentaries, which have access to the best sports talent and a significant commitment to quality in their production; it allows us to work with increasingly relevant titles for the international market," she emphasized.

During their presence at major markets, Onza Distribution will introduce their new documentaries to international clients for the first time at MIPDOC and MIPTV. These three Wakai sports titles, along with other documentaries such as "Screen Addicts," "Savage Tales of Madrid," "Real Madrid: The White Legend," or "Surprise! The Pope Knocks on Your Door," will be accessible to MIPTV attendees through the MIPDOC video library. The new additions will also be showcased in upcoming markets, including the highly anticipated thriller "Perverso," produced by Onza, the Czech period drama "Golden Swan Galleries," or the new seasons of "Flowers over Hell" and "Strawberries with Sugar."
