Marc Vigil, one of the most prestigious directors on the Spanish and Latin American audiovisual scene, rejoins the team at Globomedia (MEDIAPRO Group) as series director and executive producer.
Vigil’s next project will be as director of “Malaka”, a fiction series currently in development for RTVE in collaboration with Globomedia, before embarking on a further two new projects. Created by Daniel Corpas, “Malaka” is a police thriller set in Malaga, where the arrival of a new drug on the streets sparks a war between rival gangs.
The celebrated director returns to the production company where he had previously directed a string of hit series including “Locked Up”, “Red Eagle”, “7 Lives” and “Aída”.
Marc Vigil’s most recent project was as director of “The Ministry of Time”, in between directing two other series shot on location in Mexico: the second season of “Niño Santo” for ONCE, and the adaptation of the famous novel by Xavier Velasco, “Diablo Guardián”, for Amazon Prime.
The director has just broken ground on his first cinema project with the filming of the full-length feature due to go on release shortly, an adaptation of the novel “El silencio del pantano”, written by Carlos de Pando and Sara Antuña.
This latest signing is further endorsement of the MEDIAPRO Group’s policy focused on enlisting the best talent available. Marc Vigil joins screenwriter Javier Olivares and director Fernando González Molina, both of whom have joined Globomedia as showrunners. The exclusive series development agreement with Daniel Écija is yet another example of the Group’s commitment to delivering top-quality fiction.
