The Univision Communications and Patricio Wills joint venture announced earlier this year now has a name: W Studios.
The JV, created to develop and produce series for U.S. Hispanic audiences to air primarily during primetime on UniMás, has picked its first project.
The first production of the Miami-based W Studios is “La Piloto” from Jorg Hiller, writer of “Tiro de Gracia” and “Porque el Amor Manda.”
Inspired on true events, the series tells the story of a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot, but ends up moving drugs across Mexico, Colombia and Central America.
“La Piloto” is expected to air in the fourth quarter of 2016.
