Screenwriter and showrunner Diego San José is set to join the MEDIAPRO Group to exclusively develop fiction projects for television.
San José, screenwriter behind hit comedies such as the “Spanish Affair” and “Spanish Affair 2” saga; “Friend Zone” and “Lovestorming”, had already worked with the company in the past on “Bomb Scared” (Netflix) and more recently on the political series with satirical overtones, “Vota Juan” (TNT).
In addition to his role in developing fiction content for cinema as well as for television, Diego San José has also worked as screenwriter on entertainment formats including “Vaya Semanita”, “La Hora de José Mota”, “¡Qué vida más triste!” and “El Intermedio”, produced by Globomedia.
Javier Méndez, Global Content Director of MEDIAPRO, explained that “Diego’s incorporation, right now the most important comedy creator on the audiovisual scene, strengthens our commitment to working with the best talent for developing quality content. Our previous experience working with Diego has been very positive and we are convinced that we will develop impressive projects”.
For his part, San José highlighted, “I’ve produced two of my favourite works with MEDIAPRO, Bomb Scared and Vota Juan, and I don’t think that’s by chance, I think it has to do with the way we work together so I’m itching to get going and see what new projects can come out of this relationship.”
This latest incorporation reinforces MEDIAPRO Group’s intention to invest in working with the very best talent available. Diego San José joins an already impressive list of creators with whom the company joins forces in content creation, including Marc Vigil, Ran Tellem, Iván Escobar, Javier Olivares, Fernando González Molina and Daniel Burman, among others.
