Vice Studios Adds Scripted Spanish-Language Titles to Development Slate


ADVERTISEMENT

Vice Studios, the TV and film production arm of Vice Media, is set to develop two scripted Spanish-language projects.

From Academy Award-winning writer Nicolás Giacobone (Birdman, Biutiful), La Misa del Diablo is based on the book of the same title by Miguel Prenz that tells the story of the unsolved murder of an 11-year-old boy in a rural Argentinan town, the cop who tries to uncover the truth and the ancient cult behind it. The second project, Es Que Si Pasa, follows a fictionalized version of Mexican comedian Alexis de Anda’s life as she navigates a world of parties, odd jobs, transcendental psychedelic experiences, new lovers and more.

Both titles will be executive produced by Nacho Gil, head of creative and development for VICE Studios Latin America, and VICE Studios Head of Scripted TV Gina Marcheschi. Vice Studios’ first Spanish-Language docuseries, 1994, is currently available on Netflix. Directed by award-winning journalist Diego Osorno, the five-part docuseries examines Mexican politics in 1994.
