Globomedia’s Daniel Écija Sets Up “Fiction Factory”


Daniel Écija, one of the founders of Globomedia, has renewed his cooperation with the company for an additional five years and is creating his own unit to develop scripted projects.

Écija is behind such hits as Family Doctor, The Serranos, Paco’s Men, The Boarding School and The Boat. He is now planning to share his expertise as part of a creative workshop to bring together talents in the areas of production, screenwriting, directing and executive production. This so-called “fiction factory” will operate as an independent structure and work exclusively with Globomedia, which is part of the Mediapro Group.

Globomedia is currently producing two scripted projects, one for Mediaset and one for RTVE. El Accidente is a rural thriller that will premiere on Telecinco with Inma Cuesta, Quim Gutierrez, Berta Vázquez and Eusebio Poncela in the lead roles. Estoy Vivo is a police series for TVE starring Javier Gutierrez.

“It is a great satisfaction to be able to evolve with the starting up of this new creation center while strengthening at the same time my relationship with Globomedia (Grupo Mediapro), which has always been my home,” said Ecija.

The general director of the production company, Javier Pons, added, “Écija is undoubtedly the main reference of fiction in Spain and the most talented, experienced and successful showrunner. For Globomedia, working with him in this new stage perfectly matches with our strategy of being the home which supports the best content talents.”
