Peru’s IRTP signs co-production deal with RTVE

The National Institute of Radio and Television of Peru (IRTP) signed an agreement with the Spanish corporation RTVE to co-produce a series about the daughter of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro.
Recently, IRTP president Hugo Coya traveled to Spain where he met with RTVE executives to develop the agreement, which was signed in mid-November in Lima, Peru. It is a technical cooperation and co-production deal framed in the celebration of the Bicentennial of the independence of Peru, which will be in 2021.
The preproduction of the series on Pizarro is scheduled to begin in 2019, while filming will begin in 2020 with actors from both countries, according to Coya. The executive explained to EFE that this will be the first joint production between both state broadcasters.
