Spiral International, executive producer and leading Latin American distributor for Red Arrow Studios International, has signed an agreement with Turner Latin America to bring the Mexican adaptation of Falco (15x60’), based on the acclaimed scripted format The Last Cop, to its cable channel TNT in Latin America. 

Based on the hit German series The Last Cop, this all-new Spanish-language version will hit screens in Mexico in later this year 2018. Turner Latin America’s pick-up follows the news that Falco Mexico has also sold to Amazon Prime Video for Latin America and to NBCUniversal’s Telemundo for the United States.

“We are pleased to be part of this agreement with Spiral, Red Arrow Studios and Dynamo to bring to the audience a quality production with a strong story. Falco has an innovative structure for television alongside a modern hero, with robust relationships between its characters and a fresh vision of Mexico away from stereotypes. A perfect mix of action and drama with exact touches of humor. This series is added to a bigger strategy that TNT has been developing in Mexico, focusing on local talent and shows with the objective of producing original content”, said Tomás Yankelevich, EVP, and Chief Content Officer, General Entertainment, Turner Latin America.

“We’re delighted to have Turner Latin America on board as our exclusive Pay TV partner for Falco. The series promises to be a thrilling, gritty and realistic exploration of crime in urban Mexico City and we’re confident it will be a huge hit with audiences across Latin America,” said Zasha Robles, executive producer and managing director at Spiral International.
