Caracol Internacional is introducing audiences to the narco-comedy genre with The Good Bandit, a new series that leads the company’s programming slate for MIPTV this year.
The show follows a former drug lord who wants to atone for the sins of his past. In the reality format The Agency, regular men and women of all shapes and sizes compete against each other in a bid to become models. Celebrities will judge the contenders, who are grouped into different agencies led by famous models.
Big Steps, meanwhile, is based on the true story of a shoe shiner who won local elections and became an important political figure in his country. The drama is “the number one series in Colombia’s prime time,” says Lisette Osorio, Caracol’s VP of international sales. “A story that blends humor, love and hope, it is also set to captivate the eyes and ears of this year’s MIPTV attendees.”
She adds, “Our main mission at MIPTV is to continue expanding our presence in Europe.”
