AMC to Air OURO in Spain & Portugal


AMC Networks International Iberia has inked a deal with Newen Distribution to air the adventure/thriller series OURO on the AMC channel in Spain and Portugal.

A Canal+ original creation, OURO will debut on AMC in Spain in January 2018, followed by a premiere in Portugal in February. The series is written by Fabien Nury (Once Upon a Time in France) and produced by Mascaret Films.

“We are thrilled to bring this fantastic adventure drama to our Portuguese and Spanish audiences,” said Pilar de las Casas, the VP of cinema and documentary channels at AMC Networks International Iberia.

OURO is a very unique proposal; it’s adventure, thriller and a modern Western set in the Amazonian jungle,” said Nadia Chevallard, the head of international sales at Newen Distribution. “We’re delighted to partner with AMC Networks International Iberia to bring this new Canal+ original creation to the Spanish and Portuguese audience.”
