CBS Studios Expands International Co-Pro Slate


CBS Studios has expanded its international co-production slate with projects in Australia, Spain and France.

The new titles include Gold Diggers, produced by CBS Studios with The Alliance for Australia’s ABC, which will center on two sisters who flock to the 1850s gold rush in Australia to find newly rich husbands. Jack Yabsley serves as writer.

Meanwhile, Electric Years, produced by Dynamo in association with CBS Studios, follows Campano, a mysterious wanderer and fugitive on the run who turns a group of artists into art thieves while hiding near the French/Spanish border. Created by Fernando Navarro and Cristian Conti, the series is to be directed by Kike Maillo and written by Navarro, Conti, Isabel Peña, Rafael Cobos and Salvador Perpiñá.

“We are thrilled to build on our international co-production slate with partners like Stampede Ventures, The Alliance, Kojo Studios and Dynamo,” said David Stapf, president of CBS Studios. “These premium scripted series have the ability to travel to a broad global audience through the themes and characters, and we look forward to sharing these relevant stories with viewers.”

“Working with these talented producers allows us to support diverse talent in front of and behind the camera, while helping to tell entertaining stories that authentically reflect the world around us,” added Lindsey Martin, VP of international co-productions and development at CBS Studios.
