Cable channel FX has sealed a development deal with the two companies for an English-language version of the show. Hilary Bettis, whose credits include the last two seasons of FX’s The Americans, is attached to write.

Written by Juana Uribe (Pablo Escobar, El Patrón del Mal), the drama aired on Caracol in 2016 and also on Netflix. It is based on real events. It follows a young woman who is trying to reintegrate into society, after being recruited by Colombian guerrillas.

Not only was the show a Colombian hit, it has currently been sold by Caracol to networks in more than 60 countries, including UniMas in the US. The 86-episode series was produced by CMO Productions.

“At Caracol, we are committed to writing universal stories that can be adapted in all markets,” said Lisette Osorio, VP of international sales at Caracol Televisión. “We are very pleased to partner again with Propagate and FX to bring to US screens the adaptation of one of our most successful series.”

Propagate signed a deal last year to bring Caracol format La Niña (The Girl), as well as unscripted show Otro Nivel (On Another Level), to the US marketplace for local adaptations.

“Propagate aims to bring the best stories from around the world to the US market and beyond,” said Ben Silverman, chairman and co-CEO of Propagate. Silverman runs the Raine Group-backed company with co-CEO Howard T. Owens.
