Fremantle scores co-development deal with Tinelli

FremantleMedia Latin America has partnered with Argentine prodco Ideas del Sur in a co-development agreement.

This will see the pair co-creating, developing and producing shows for Latin American markets. FMLA already has a similar co-development agreement with leading Argentinian network Telefe, and has scored others with Marco Antonio Regil’s RGL and 360 Powwow.

Ideas del Sur chief Marcelo Tinelli first announced the agreement last week on his Twitter account, with FMLA officially confirming it today.

Producer Tinelli is best known locally as host of El Trece’s variety talent ShowMatch programme, which is one of Argentina’s consistently biggest rating series.

“Ideas del Sur are the ideal partners to develop and produce content aligned with the clients’ and territory needs,” said Adrian Santucho, CEO of FremantleMedia US Hispanic, Mexico and Pan-Regional.

“We’re really excited to team up with Marcelo Tinelli’s company and tapping into his experience as one of the most iconic figures in Argentinian television to enhance our future projects.”
