TelevisaUnivision announced the start of production in Mexico City of “Una Noche” (One Night, working title), an exclusive thriller series for ViX+, the recently launched premium Spanish-language subscription streaming service. Produced by The Immigrant, the production company founded by “El Chapo” producer Camila Jimenez and creator Silvana Aguirre, “Una Noche” is the first title to go in production as part of a deal between The Immigrant and ViX+ to develop original scripted content. The Immigrant and ViX+ are currently developing two additional series under the deal.
Directed by Inés Barrionuevo, Analeine Cal y Mayor, and Cris Gris, and written by Adriana Pelusi, the original production stars Paulina Dávila, Alicia Jaziz, and Christopher Von Uckerman. “Una Noche” delves into the story of Carla, a young high school teacher tasked with investigating sexual harassment accusations against one of her fellow teachers and friend, Ricardo.
“We are excited to partner with the talented team at The Immigrant to tell diverse, compelling stories like ‘Una Noche.’ This gripping limited series wraps you up in the story while exploring complex social topics. ‘Una Noche’ ultimately delivers a story of hope by showing how a sisterhood between two women of different generations can help them both move forward," said Rodrigo Mazón, Executive Vice President and General Manager of ViX+.
“‘Una Noche’ puts a twist on a classical ‘whodunit’ and turns it into a ‘who's lying.’ The poignant writing of Adriana Pelusi and the sensitive vision of our directors Inés Barrionuevo, Analeine Cal y Mayor and Cris Gris allow us to deliver on these themes in a way that will have audiences at the edge of their seats,” added Silvana Aguirre, Head of Development and Co-Founder of The Immigrant.
