The show produced jointly by Mediaset España and Producciones Mandarina, and is being distributed by Mediterraneo Audiovisual, a division of Mediaset España was the winner of the Coup de Cœur award at the MIPDrama Buyers Summit and has excelled in the Fresh TV
Dangerous Moms, a blackly humorous story of a group of women who find themselves with a corpse to dispose of, was chosen by buyers in Cannes as their favourite of the ten series screened during the MIPDrama Buyers’ Summit on Sunday. In addition, the series has excelled as part of the Fresh TV sessions organized by the prestigious French consulting firm The Wit.
Accepting the award yesterday were Arantxa Ecija, Head of Drama at Mediaset Espana, Silvia Cotino, Head of International Sales at Mediterráneo, and Gloria Salo, head of International Markets at Mandarina.
Arantxa Ecija affirmed: “We are very proud to receive an award for this comedy. The story is local but also has international appeal. It’s about real women. It’s hard when it’s a Spanish comedy with English subtitles; we weren’t sure what the reaction would be and whether the jokes would work. But straight away at the screening we realised that the audience got it, and they were laughing.”
Dangerous Moms will be aired in Mediaset’s channels this year. It tells the story of a single mother, Mayte, who along with three other women, gets trapped in a spiral of bizarre illegal acts while covering up for an accidental murder.
