Production is underway in Colombia for Sony Pictures Television (SPT) and The Mediapro Studio’s thriller series titled “Código Implacable” for Claro video. The 10-episode series, which was first announced during LA Screenings in 2019, is the first project as part of a co-development and co-production agreement between the producers.
The series is originally based on a project titled “35 years and Counting,” created by Ran Tellem, Director of International Content Development of The Mediapro Studio, and Mariano Baselga, the Studio’s Content Development Producer. “Código Implacable” will be distributed worldwide by The Mediapro Studio Distribution and Sony Pictures Television.
“We’re excited to start production of this thrilling series in Colombia,” said Ana Bond, SVP and MD, International Production, Latin America and US Hispanic at SPT. “This a high-quality series with a unique narrative and a suspenseful story that keeps the audience engaged in search of answers at every turn,” she added.
“‘Código Implacable’ is one of those projects that when you listen the pitch you can see the entire series in front of your eyes. It is an extraordinary thriller, very original in its approach. We also count with a family of talents in front of and behind the camera, who are producing surprising material, which makes us proud as production Studio and encourages us to continue strengthening our productions in America,” declared Daniel Burman, Head of Content at The Mediapro Studio US.
Lastly, Ran Tellem, Director of International Development Content at The Mediapro Studio, commented: “From the moment the idea was born in a cafe in Madrid to where we are now shooting in Latin America, it is a miracle. ‘Código Implacable’ will show us that people can work together, and if we don't let age, gender or race get in the way, we have no limits".
The series tells the story of an investigative team with different backgrounds and ages determined to solve a case about a serial rapist who has remained at large for 35 years. The team is led by Marcela Beltran, Alfonso Santos, Ángeles Martin Del Campo and Juan Jose Ochoa. Together they manage to catch the rapist, only to realize this is just the beginning of the case. His capture will uncover a web of corruption, which will force these agents to stick together if they want to see justice served.
