“La Selección” – Based on a true story, this series depicts the rise of the Colombian national team to international fame and glory during a turbulent period of violent drug wars and domestic terrorism. Through the very personal experiences of the squad’s four principal players, who went on to become highly-paid international soccer stars –“El Pibe” Valderrama, Freddy Rincón, RenéHiguita, and Faustino Asprilla– the series follows the national team’s unexpected ascent and finally takes Colombia to the World Cup after obtaining a historic 5-0 qualifying victory over its biggest rival, Argentina.
“Cloroformo” – This series focuses on five boxers, one of them a young woman, who train at a run-down urban gym in Mexico City. Their personal dreams and demons, victories and defeats, passions and frustrations, make for a drama that unfolds against the oftentimes seedy backdrop of the highly competitive world of professional boxing.
