Paramount Channel launches its first Mexican produced original series

Paramount Channel Latin America is launching Dani Who?, its first  Mexican produced original series. This is a science fiction thriller set in the 1990s, which can be watched throughout Latin America on Sundays, starting  next November 3rd. The series will also be available on Amazon Prime Video, where it will be possible to access the first episode on November 8th, and the remaining nine from November 15th.

The series was produced in Mexico City by content producer Argos Communication and Viacom International Studios, which, as the company reported at the end of the project’s recordings, the series focuses on a group of classmates who did not believe they had anything in common, but that the disappearance of a girl in town will joint them forever. The plot takes place in the San Gregorio town, where a network of lies, a hidden disappearance and a possible murder develop the suspense of history. A group of teenagers will become inseparable accomplices and discover that they have more in common than they had thought, including special abilities. This will lead them to believe that they may not be from this world, and that their history hides secrets even darker and deeper than they ever imagined.

Tiago Worcman, SVP Brand Head for Music & Entertainment Brands for Viacom International Media Networks, said that ‘as a science fiction fan who grew up in the 1980s, I can’t be happier to present Dani Who?, our first original fiction series for Paramount Channel. We have worked for a long time in the development of this story and in every detail to recreate Mexico in the 1990s. The series begins with a fascinating premise and evolves into a story of suspense and mystery that, we are sure, will have everyone engaged from the first episode’. 

‘Prime Video is the perfect streaming place for this sci-fi thriller. Dani Who? It has an amazing script and a promising Mexican cast, with an exciting history and performances that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats’, adds Pablo Iacoviello, Head of Content Acquisition of Amazon Prime Video for Latin America.
