Cacao & Cía will work with Spanish and Latin American talent to produce content in Spanish aimed at Hispanic and international markets. News of the prodco was announced officially at C21’s Content Americas event in Miami today.

With offices in Mexico City and Madrid, Cacao & Cía’s management team will be led by Non Stop’s chief content officer Pedro Dávila, who takes the role of CEO. iZen’s production exec Juliana Barrera will support the development and production of projects from Spain.

The first projects to come from the fledgling prodco include biopics of Argentinian racing driver Juan Manuel Fangio and Mexican singer-songwriter Chavela Vargas. The latter is based on the book Las verdades de Chavela by María Cortina and is being adapted by Arantxa Echevarría (El Cid, Carmen y Lola).

Non Stop is behind drama series for Disney Lat Am including Soy Luna, Violetta, Santa Evita and Tierra Incógnita, while iZen’s credits include drama El Cid for Amazon’s Prime Video, Netflix reality series Insiders and docudrama Centro Médico for Spain’s TVE.

Dávila said: “Under this new entity we will seek to support local talent and stories. We want to work with studios, but also with independent creators. We have the experience and resources to enter into coproduction agreements and we are excited to work creating new models and offering production and distribution support in Lat Am or Europe.”
