Camila Sodi’s latest television project is coming to the Americas…
Turner Broadcasting System Latin America has picked up the exclusive, first-run subscription television rights to the original series Señorita Pólvora, starring the 28-year-old Mexican singer, actress and model.
The Spanish-language drama is based on a real-life story about a beauty queen who falls for a Mafia hitman.
Señorita Pólvora, which also stars Iván Sánchez, José María de Tavira and Saúl Lisazo, will premiere on TNT in early 2015.
Following its TNT debut, the telenovela will be available for subscribers on the streaming site Claro video, a Netfix rival owned by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, the world’s richest man.
Señorita Pólvora is the first of several teleseries that Sony Pictures Television and Televisa are co-producing under a multiyear joint venture.
The distribution deals allow Señorita Pólvora to reach audiences in 42 territories throughout Latin America.
“Señorita Pólvora is a great acquisition for us as it is consistent with our strategy to incorporate local content on channels to further engage Latin American viewers,” said Angel Zambrano, vice president of acquisitions and syndication at Turner Broadcasting System Latin America.
In the U.S., the series will air on the Univision network UniMas.
