José Miguel Contreras, the creator of The Sixth, lance Lacoproductora, a new company for the acceleration of projects of writers and executive producers of independent that are not linked to any of the big companies. The manager wants to make use of his experience in the sector to provide know-how and to make contacts with writers and showrunners with large conglomerates. A few want to make room for their ideas; the other, written content. Both are part of a trend fostered by the burgeoning service platforms on-demand and with a character that already global.
The new company Contreras puts the focus on film, television, internet and theatre, and involves a project outside of Globomedia, which has historically been linked, and with which even today produces The intermediate, one of the formats most successful of The Sixth since the beginning of that string. According to sources of the daily, the steering remains in the program that presents Wyoming a contract for the work. Contreras was the first ceo of that chain, and later became the vice president of Atresmedia, upon consummation of the merger of that channel with an Antenna 3.
In 2015, the founding partners of Globomedia trade their shares in the production company, already integrated in the Mediapro group. The two companies had merged in 2006, but Globomedia lost weight gradually in comparison with other branches of the business, such as the provision of services of audiovisual and sports rights. So, Contreras, Daniel Écija, Emilio Aragón and Andrés Varela ended up leaving that group, directed by Jaume Roures and with capital mostly chinese since February of this year, when the fund chinese Orient Hontai Capital spent to control 53.5% of the capital.
Lacoproductora kept open by its shareholder and the trust to incorporate in the near future screenwriters with a track record and also novice. For the moment, only has transcended the name of Jorge Pezzi, who has spent most of his career in advertising and figure as director general of this accelerator which is a founding partner along with Contreras.
In the catalogue of projects, as reflected by the release of release, Lacoproductora count already with a dozen of series and original formats; some, they say, will see the light early next year, and in different television channels.
