HBO Max takes Isabel Allende drama

Three-parter Isabel launches on HBO Max next month

WarnerMedia-owned SVoD service HBO Max has obtained the North American streaming rights to Chilean miniseries Isabel, about the life of writer Isabel Allende.

The three-part drama, which debuts on HBO Max on March 12, is directed by Rodrigo Bazaes and produced by MegaMedia Chile. Isabel Miquel is executive producer on the series.

The drama covers Allende’s fleeing of Chile after General Pinochet’s coup in 1973 and the tragic death of her daughter Paula.

The most-read Spanish language author in the world, Allende published her debut novel, The House of the Spirits, in 1982 and has since authored 25 books that have been translated into 42 languages and sold more than 75 million copies worldwide.

The agreement for Isabel was negotiated by Leslie Cohen, senior VP of content acquisitions at HBO; Esperanza Garay, CEO of the show’s distributor Mega Global Entertainment (MGE); and Rose Marie Vega, founder and president of RMVISTAR, MGE’s US distribution partner for the series.
