Networks taking over other networks’ shows can be quite the controversy. Not for Amazon’s “La Jauria.”
Originally, the show was for Amazon Prime Video but WarnerMedia streamer HBO Max picked up the second season. It’s a Spanish thriller from Pablo and Juan de Dios Larrain’s Fabula, which also made the Oscar-winning film “A Fantastic Woman.”
HBO Max is set to premiere the first season of the series on December 8, 2020. The series talks about a story of a young girl’s disappearance and become the center of a police investigation. They start digging into an online game that encourages men and grooms them into assaulting women.
The cast of “La Jauria” is composed of Daniela Vega (who is known for her role in A Fantastic Woman) and Antonia Zegers (who is known for her role in Fugitivos). The show will be directed by Lucia Puenzo.
As for production, Fremantle will be in charge of that along with Fabula and an Argentine company called Kapow. Fremantle will be primarily in charge of worldwide distribution.
After a successful first season for La Jauria across Latin America and Spain, Amazon was already commissioned a second season of the show.
In a statement released by Sheila Aguirre, the EVP of content distribution and format sales, Latin America, international, Fremantle, she says that “It’s a gripping, compelling and timely drama that addresses important topical issues regarding the epidemic of violence against women. We are confident HBO’s audience will be moved by the standout storyline and the powerful performances.”
