MIPCOM Spotlight: Atresmedia Televisión


Among the programs on Atresmedia Televisión’s slate, UPA Next is a revival of the Un Paso Adelante (One Step Forward) franchise.

Characters such as Silvia, Rober and Lola will return alongside new students of the Carmen Arranz performing arts school.

The eight-part drama La Ruta (The Route) found its basis in a real music revolution. “It was one of the most important clubbing and electronic music movements in the world but also a revolution in fashion, culture, society and even language,” says Jose Antonio Salso, head of acquisitions and sales.

Heridas, a 13-part Spanish adaptation of the Japanese format Mother, tackles themes such as child abandonment and the search for one’s own identity. The cast includes Adriana Ugarte (El tiempo entre costuras), María León and Cosette Silguero.

“We are happy to be in Cannes and meet our clients and friends again in person,” Salso says.
