Filming of The Mediapro Studio’s Los Internacionales, a co-production with Viacom International Studios (VIS), Telecom and Olympusat, is set to begin in Argentina.
The drama series is set in the period of Argentina’s political and economic crisis of 2001. Cecilia Roth (All About My Mother, Martin H, Historia de un Clan, El Ángel, Pain and Glory) and Juan Pablo Shuk (The Boat, The Ministry of Time, Narcos) lead the cast.
Los Internacionales is slated to be released in 2020 on Telefe, as well as Telecom’s content multiplatform and VOD service, Flow.
Based on the novel La conexión Bogotá by journalist Nahuel Gallota, Los Internacionales narrates the story of a renowned gang of Colombian thieves who travel to Argentina in the midst of the economic crisis, known popularly as the “Corralito,” to take advantage of the pillaging and social breakdown in which the country was engulfed.
