VIS Pacts with Paco Cabezas for Paramount


VIS has signed an exclusive agreement with director Paco Cabezas (Penny Dreadful, Umbrella Academy, American Gods), who will create, produce and direct non-English projects for Paramount.

Cabezas, who has worked in both Spain and the U.S. over the past ten years on multiple movies and TV series, will work on projects outside of the U.S., such as The Gypsy Bride. Already in production with the participation of Atresmedia Televisión and in collaboration with Diagonal TV, it is an adaptation of Carmen Mola’s novel.

“We are thrilled with this alliance with Paco Cabezas, one of the most prestigious and international Spanish directors,” Laura Abril, senior VP and head of VIS EMEA and Asia. “This agreement opens new opportunities by combining Cabezas’ extraordinary creativity with the global outreach of VIS, content creator for the Paramount brands.”

Cabezas added, “he most important thing for me as an artist and storyteller is creative freedom; that’s what really makes a TV show special: taking the risk of creating a world that audiences have never seen before. And VIS and Paramount have become the perfect partner in a, hopefully, long alliance.”
