Gaumont (Narcos) and About Entertainment currently coproduce Amazon Prime Video’s Latin American comedy-drama series El Presidente, along with Argentina’s Kapow and Chilean production company Fabula.

Bó, who launched About Entertainment last year, serves as exec producer, writer, director and showrunner on the series and is also known for co-writing Oscar-winning film Birdman.

Among the first projects to be developed under Gaumont and About Entertainment’s deal is a satire on the creation of the nation of Panama, Panama Canal and the American tycoons and other foreign empresarios who concocted the plan to annex the territory from Colombia.

“Armando’s ability to conceptualise and create compelling stories makes him one of the most inspired storytellers of this generation. As we continue to strive to engage and entertain the global audience, we feel we have found the perfect partner in About Entertainment,” said Nicolas Atlan, president of Gaumont US.

Bó added: “We began this process to join forces with the aim of developing stories that have a different point of view regardless of what language they are made in.”
