NATPE Spotlight: MediaBiz


MIAMI: MediaBiz is eager to begin developing new projects in Latin America, given the talent pool found in all areas of this part of the world, says Alex Lagomarsino, CEO of and partner in the company.

MediaBiz has already established relationships with a number of highly acclaimed producers and directors, including Ricardo Rodriguez (Daddy’s Secrets), Leonardo Bechini (Cops and Robbers, Coffee Stories), Oscar Tabernise (Dos Mujeres, Bellezas Indomables) and Ramiro San Honorio (Templarios en America, El Paraiso), as well as Jorge Nisco, who is behind the title Killer Women. Inspired by real-life events, Killer Women details a number of brutal crimes committed by females who were prompted by domestic violence, greed and other motives. 

Also in the MediaBiz catalogue are Left on the Shelf and More than Partners. “These shows have been successful in prime time, getting high ratings on Argentine TV,” says Lagomarsino, who mentions that these “multi-award-winning programs with extraordinary stories are easily adaptable for different countries.”
