Barrera will be tasked with expanding on existing projects and developing and producing new projects at the studio, which is headed by James Costos.

He will lead a team of his own and work in partnership with the rest of the studio’s creative areas (unscripted, film and services), especially fiction, which has been led by David Martínez and his team since May 2020.

Barrera joins the fiction department after a long career in television, with credits on titles that have aired on the main public and private networks.

He has also held management positions at production companies such as Globomedia, Isla Audiovisual, Mediacrest and, more recently, Amazon Studios, where he was head of original fiction content for Spain.

Forthcoming Secuoya Studios shows include Campamento Newton, a coproduction with Dopamine and Álamo Audiovisual 12 AIE in association with Avi Films, which will be streamed exclusively on Disney Channel Spain later this year.

Barrera’s appointment comes just a few months after the company announced strategic alliances with leading Latin American partners. In September last year, Secuoya Studios and Telemundo Streaming Studios struck a deal to co-develop, co-produce and co-finance several fiction projects through to 2023.
