MIPCOM Spotlight: HBO Latin America


As part of HBO Latin America’s 15th anniversary celebration of Latin American original productions, the company is highlighting three series that have reached their final seasons throughout 2018.

This includes the Brazilian drama The Business (O Negócio) and the Mexican crime series Sr. Ávila, which won an International Emmy. There’s also Magnífica 70, which is set against the backdrop of the Brazilian independent movie industry in the 1970s.

“We’re thrilled to see the culmination of these three amazing stories, and are eagerly looking forward to the road ahead,” says Xavier Aristimuño, VP of licensing for HBO Latin America. “We will also highlight The Bronze Garden (El Jardín de Bronce), an action thriller based on the bestseller by the Argentine author Gustavo Malajovich, with a second season currently in production.”

Aristimuño adds, “Our local original productions all carry the stamp of quality that HBO is known for.”
