Caracol & SOMOS Align for Juegos Interrumpidos


Caracol Televisión and SOMOS Productions have unveiled the thriller Juegos Interrumpidos, created and developed by Fenix III.

Juegos Interrumpidos takes place in the world of human trafficking, focusing on the theft of children for illegal adoption purposes. Over its 12 episodes, the series tells the story of a mother and her adoptive son, who she learns was actually kidnapped and had been psychologically abused to erase his true identity. It will soon be available for the international market.

Lisette Osorio, international sales VP at Caracol Televisión, said: “We are very excited to join forces with new allies in our commitment to create universal stories with the potential to reach every corner of the world. We have created a robust distribution model with SOMOS Productions designed to maximize benefits for both companies.”

Luis Villanueva, president and CEO of SOMOS Productions, added: “Juegos Interrumpidos has the advantage of relying on solid partners with proven experience and expertise in the television business, in production and also in distribution. Besides the plot and format’s appeal, we are addressing content consumption trends in all windows, and there is no doubt we will deliver an entertaining and interesting product with high production values.”
