Breaking Bad in Colombia: Metastasis – Trailer

Breaking Bad ist fertig, right? Wrong, sort of. Ist schon ein paar Monate bekannt, dass es ein Remake für den Lateinamerikanischen Markt geben wird, das in Kolumbien spielen soll und bis auf ein paar Details weitgehend eine exakte Kopie werden soll. Hier der erste Trailer (und der letzte Heisencast kommt heute im Laufe des Tages):

Meet Walter Blanco. He's the flawed lead character in Metastasis, a new Colombian series from Sony Pictures Television with a bold premise: It's about this chemistry teacher who becomes a methamphetamine cook. It's Breaking Bad. In Spanish.

As U.S. fans of Vince Gilligan's Emmy-winning drama enter postfinale withdrawal, Sony and Colombian producer Teleset are hoping to hook Latin Americans on the story of Walter, partner Jose (Jesse), wife Cielo (Skyler) and brother-in-law -- and narcotics agent -- Henry Navarro (Hank). "Breaking Bad is a fantastic series that wasn't widely seen in Latin America, partly because cable doesn't yet have full penetration in the region," says Angelica Guerra, SPT senior vp and managing director of production for Latin America and the U.S. Hispanic market. "[But] there is a universality to the story and its characters that we recognized could work very well."

Metastasis (a reference to metastasizing cancer) promises to be more mainstream, at least for Spanish speakers accustomed to such crime telenovelas as El Cartel and La Saga. SPT has presold the first season of Metastasis to all major Spanish-speaking markets across Latin America as well as to Univision's UniMas network in the U.S.


"Motor homes are not popular in Colombia," she says, "so audiences will see Walter and Jose cooking up their first several batches of methamphetamine in an old, barely drivable school bus."
