Fox International Channels Latin America and Sony Pictures Television are backing Oscar-winner Juan Jose Campanella’s upcoming series “Entre canibales,” a political revenge thriller produced by Argentine leading broadcaster Telefe.
A high-end TV drama, designed as two 60-episode seasons, “Entre canibales” premieres Wednesday May 20 on Telefe, and is scheduled to air Monday to Thursday every week.
Fic Latin America has taken a co-production stake in “Canibales.” Under the deal, Fic will launch each episode of the series across the region via its Fox Life network, one day after “Canibales” segs broadcast on Telefe.
Sony Pictures Television will distribute the TV series in both the U.S. Hispanic and Latin American markets.
Uruguayan channel Monte Carlo TV, which has also joined the series as co-producer, snagging Uruguayan broadcasting TV rights, will air “Canibales” from Thursday May 21 in primetime.

The nine foreign-language films shortlisted by the Academy hail from three continents: South America, Europe and Africa. From South America, Argentina’s Wild Tales and Venezuela’s The Liberator made the list. From Africa, Mauritania’s Timbuktu did as well. From Europe, Estonia’s Tangerines, Georgia’s Corn Island, the Netherlands’ Accused, Poland’s Ida, Russia’s Leviathan and Sweden’s Force Majeure all made the top nine.
This year could mark the first Oscar nomination for Estonia, Georgia, Mauritania (whose film was the country’s first Oscar-submitted film) and Venezuela. Argentina, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden have each received two Oscar nominations in the past 14 years. Of those four countries, Argentina is the only one to win an Oscar, which it did in 2010 for The Secret in Their Eyes. If Russia lands a nomination, it will be the country’s second in the 21st century. »
