Miguel Somoza and Baruch Vega
Sabbatical Entertainment announced the representation of its first drama series, which will portray the life of Baruch Vega, a Colombian photographer of international high fashion and undercover agent of the CIA, the FBI and the DEA. Vega lived countless dangerous adventures during the 70's and 80's between the United States, Latin America and Europe, becoming wildly successful and wealthy, while simultaneously conning both the DEA, and the world’s most dangerous drug traffickers.
The series will be shot in multinational locations, and Sabbatical is in discussion with high-profile potential cast members. This new project follows the recent trend of fictionalized stories whose protagonists walk the tightrope between good and evil.
"Baruch Vega trusted us to represent him and bring his amazing experiences to the screen, in a compelling drama series complete with action, espionage and suspense. We have already received tremendous interest from the market, from potential production partners to buyers. His story is so unique and intriguing that we believe this will captivate all kinds of audiences," commented Miguel Somoza, CEO of Sabbatical.
