HBO Latino Scores Hit With "Profugos" (Fugitives)
14 November 2013 | by (Nevada) – See all my reviews

You may not have heard of this show if you don't speak Spanish. Profugos is an exciting adrenaline pumping series filmed for HBO Latino. Profugos, or "Fugitives" has everything fans of Breaking Bad or The Soprano's crave. Drugs, Sex, Violence, Mystery.. it's all there. The show centers around a four guys who end up running for their lives after a botched drug deal. Excellent locations in this original series. The Atacama desert was only one backdrop selected for this heart pounding drama.

HBO did not disappoint their fans with this production. They put together the best talent available in Chile for the production. The end result is technically superb. Personally I have had the pleasure of working with HBO and OC Productions to transform Profugos into English for re-release as "Fugitives" in other countries. There is no doubt that Fugitives would be a huge hit in America. -- Zane Durant
