Dopamine & Turner LatAm in Three-Series Pact


Turner Latin America and Dopamine have struck up a partnership to develop and produce three original series this year.

Part of the pact, Coyotl is a supernatural drama that touches on the conflict at the Mexico-U.S. border. When a U.S.-born teenager from a Mexican immigrant family arrives in an imaginary town in Northern Mexico, everything changes as he gets bitten by a coyote and becomes a new version of the mystical werewolf Coyotl, ready to protect the lives of people who illegally sneak across the border.

The contemporary romantic and family drama Amarres will tell the story of Ana, the granddaughter of an old amarradora at Sonora market in Mexico. As a way out of her desperate financial situation, Ana decides to go back to the old family tradition in order to stop her husband from getting custody of their children and becomes entangled in a world of magic in the process.

Tu parte del trato is all about strong female roles. The thriller, set at the turn of 1990s, features divas who are empowered to the point of murder.

Marcelo Tamburri, VP of scripted content development at Turner Latin America, said: “Dopamine has struck us as a very creative, talented and professional group of people, as evidenced by their products. They presented us with three very different stories that are certain to strike a chord with our brands’ audiences, and whose scope and interest can be extended to other platforms. We are already working with the Dopamine team to develop those three productions, which will definitely not go unnoticed. We are confident that these series will capture the hearts of our audiences not only in Mexico but also throughout Latin America.”

Fidela Navarro, CEO at Dopamine, added: “We have started the year with some great projects underway and with great partners, with a strategy and a vision for the future. We value [Turner’s] trust and their decision to tell different stories, from Mexico for the world.”
