SOMOS Productions and Onceloops (Argentinian production company) announced today in MIPCOM the coproduction of a new series Maleducadas (“Spoiled”). The 15-episode youth series is based on a story that combines elements of generational rebellion, mystery and individual search within a musical framework. SOMOS Productions (chaired by Luis Villanueva) and Onceloops (led by Sebastian Mellino) are two production companies that have been characterized by delivering successful musical and drama episodic content. These elements are combined in Maleducadas.
Maleducadas is the story of four young girls, united because their parents don’t allow them to follow their biggest dream: their love for music. After having problems in school, Gegé, Majo, Cony and Jazz are sent to a camp where to discover their spirituality and find themselves; however, the camp is a dark place where danger and mystery are hidden in every corner. The girls face experiences meeting friends and uncovering secrets. They are different, but united by a common feeling: the love for music. This love for music will be the true element that connects the girls with the most important values: the importance of dedication, friendship and love, and will lead them to a musical contest where talent will be the deciding factor for participating bands to win.
Luis Villanueva expressed his satisfaction with this project: “In SOMOS Productions we are pleased to partner with Onceloops for Maleducadas. Our experience in handling the musical component and our strengths in this genre are combined in this refreshing and attractive story. Elements of friendship, love and the anguish that face this new generation are all put together. We are sure that this series will add value to the successful catalog that we have developed in our company. This format is very much in line with contemporary consumption habits, guaranteeing wide distribution.”
Sebastian Mellino stated, “I am very excited that I have found in SOMOS Productions a partner that believes in the power that music has over content. SOMOS bets on cutting-edge products developed around the youth genre, which personally excites me, since Maleducadas is a series designed for Generation Z.”
SOMOS Productions has been characterized by its success in series such as Hasta Que Te Conocí (along with Disney Media Distribution Latin America, IGSFA Management and BTF Media), the production of live music shows on US television, youth dramas and other genres. The company is currently producing the series Súbete a Mi Moto (in conjunction with Pinolywood Studios and Endemol Shine Boomdog), a series which tells the story of the band Menudo.
