Dori Media Group to Distribute Crime Drama The Marginal


TEL AVIV: Dori Media Group has signed an agreement with producer Underground Producciones and Argentine network TV Pública to distribute the weekly crime drama The Marginal (El Marginal).

The series focuses on the story of Miguel Dimarco, an ex-cop who enters prison under a false identity as a convict. His mission is to infiltrate a gang of prisoners who have kidnapped the daughter of a prominent judge. However, someone betrays Miguel, leaving him behind bars with no witnesses who know his true identity.

Dori Media Group previously partnered with Underground for the production of Lalola, which has now been sold into more than 120 territories and was produced by Dori Media Contenidos. Dori also previously worked with TV Pública on the co-production of three seasons of En terapia, the Argentine adaptation of the Israeli format In Treatment.

Michal Nashiv, the CEO of Dori Media Contenidos, commented: “Our previous partnership with Underground, as well as TV Pública, was as successful as it gets and we are very much looking forward to reuniting with the team on the distribution of El Marginal, a gripping crime drama that explores some of the darker sides of the prison system. The show has all the ingredients to be another big hit.”

Gonzalo Armendares, the CEO of Underground Producciones, said: “We are really convinced that this new partnership with Dori Media to distribute our series El Marginal will yield great results at an international level and we thank TV Pública Argentina for their support in this search for high quality products.”

Horacio Levin, the director of TV Pública Argentina, added: “We are very pleased to have El Marginal on our screens. Even before its release, the drama is already a major award winner. I’m sure it will have a great reception from the public.”
