Sony Pictures TV will distribute ‘Señoras’ from the New Mexico production company, Ellas Cuatro

Sony Pictures TV Latin America (SPT LATAM) has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to “Señoras,” the inaugural television series from new Mexican producer and production company, Ellas Cuatro. The dramatic skein created by the co-founder of Ellas Cuatro, Gabriela Marcos Payton, will have its market debut at Content Americas.

Co-founded by actress-producers Esmeralda Pimentel (“No Man’s Land”), Ela Velden (“Who Killed Sara?”), Frida Astrid (“Bardo”) and Marcos Payton (“How to Survive Being Single”), Ellas Cuatro teamed up with Addiction House, the company behind the hit comedy series “How to Survive Being Single” (Amazon Prime Video) to do it.

Addiction House founders Sebastián Zurita, Ricardo Gaspar and Emiliano Zurita serve as co-producers. “We are always looking for innovative and unique projects, stories that make us feel like we are not alone on our journey. We believe that ‘Señoras’ is that and more”, said Sebastián Zurita, general director of Addiction House.

Show is described as “a multi-generational drama about liberation, self-love and friendship” that serves as a reminder that “it’s never too late to start over and that age is just a number.”

“This show, this women-created story about female empowerment, is unlike anything we have seen before in Latin America and we are excited to work with Ellas Cuatro and Addiction House to bring it to market,” said Selina Nederhand, SVP and head of co-networks, content strategy and acquisitions, SPT Latam.

“With ‘Ladies,’ we hope to empower women through these strong, resilient, relatable female characters. Characters that are not supporting a masculine plot, but a story where women can finally share their truth”, said the founders of Ellas Cuatro.

Ellas Cuatro is one of the last women-driven Latin American companies seeking to address the underrepresentation of women in the entertainment industry.

Anonima Media was launched last year, founded by the businesswoman, journalist and producer based in Mexico City Bárbara Arredondo Ayala, the actress and producer Eréndira Ibarra and the screenwriter and producer Natasha Ybarra-Klor with the aim of creating content for and by women from Latin America and Spain. .

In the 2021 annual report of the Mexican Institute of Cinematography -the latest available- of the 259 feature films made the previous year in Mexico, 25% were directed by women while 43% were produced by women.
