Viacom International Studios (VIS) Americas has landed an exclusive first-look deal with the Argentine director, screenwriter, film and TV producer Juan José Campanella and his production company 100 Bares to develop and produce premium content for the next two years.
Campanella won an Oscar for best international feature film in 2010 with El Secreto De Sus Ojos. In television, he has been the creator, director and scriptwriter of the series Vientos de agua (2006), El hombre de tu vida (2011-2012), Entre caníbales (2015) and was the director on the first season of Colony and executive producer of the second season of the same series.
“We are very excited about this deal,” said Campanella. “These days, partnerships between companies are vital to boost projects. Our experience with Telefe has been fantastic. After this agreement with Viacom International Studios, we can think of even more ambitious projects without limiting ourselves in terms of formats and platforms, giving priority to good ideas.”
