DRG, Dopamine partner on scripted
NENT Group-owned distributor DRG has signed an agreement with Mexican indie Dopamine to co-finance, develop and produce English-language scripted content.
Dopamine was established in 2017 and is behind big-budget Spanish-language period drama Hernán, the Amazon Prime series which follows the life of Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés.
Richard Halliwell, CEO of DRG and MD of NENT Studios UK, said: “Dopamine is already producing high-quality Spanish-language content, and our collaboration will extend its global reach while providing DRG with access to its talented team, unique storytelling capabilities and a greater understanding of the Latin American market.
“This partnership will further increase our investment in the UK production industry and we look forward to announcing our first production together very soon.”
Fidela Navarro, CEO of Dopamine, added: “From day one, Dopamine has been an ambitious business, keen to create content that works on a global level. This new alliance with DRG pairs us with experienced hands in the international market and helps strengthen our strategy. We share DRG’s passion for storytelling and look forward to a long and successful relationship, creating truly stand-out new English-language scripted content for broadcasters and streaming platforms worldwide.”
