Connect3 Productions and Brazil’s Boutique Filmes announced today a co-production partnership to develop and produce a high-end scripted series about Nazi hunters.
Inspired by true events, this English-language series is based on the incredible covert operations of Israel’s Mossad Nazi hunters. In the 1950s, intelligence surfaced that Latin America had become a safe haven for many of the most notorious and terrifying Nazis. This compelling series follows the Mossad special agents as they work undercover throughout Latin America, digging up clues while navigating through dangerous situations to hunt down, capture, and prosecute sinister Nazi leaders including Adolf Eichmann, Josef Mengele, and Klaus Barbie.
“This is a prime example of the internationally appealing projects that Connect3 is looking to collaborate with producers on. We are thrilled to be forging a co-production partnership with Boutique Filmes,” said Pablo Salzman, President, Connect3. “Our companies are on the same creative page and we’re determined to develop a compelling drama that will reach viewers around the world.”
Currently in development, International Emmy®-nominated creator and writer Rodrigo Castilho is attached to the project. Castilho’s credits include the HBO Latin America series The Business and the Globosat series Mothern.
“Co-developing allows us to work with top talent and leverage opportunities on a global scale, expanding Boutique Filmes’ presence in the international market,” said Gustavo Mello, Executive Producer, Boutique Filmes. “We’re excited to develop our new international show with Connect3. We’ve got the right players in place to create another gripping and acclaimed series.”
Boutique Filmes is the company behind the successful Netflix original series, 3%, the most watched non-English Netflix show in the US. The project is being structured and developed to qualify as a Canada-Brazil treaty co-production.
