MediaPro Group has struck a deal with screenwriter and showrunner Diego San José to exclusively develop fiction projects for television.
San José, screenwriter behind comedies such as Spanish Affair (pictured) and Spanish Affair 2 and Friend Zone, has already worked with the company in the past with Bomb Scared and political series Vota Juan.
The scribe’s hire highlights MediaPro Group’s intention to invest in working with the very best talent available. José joins a 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.
Javier Méndez, global content director of MediaPro, said: “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”.
San José added: “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.”
