Televisa, RTI Acquires Rights for TV Adaptation of Novel 'Guardian Devil'
The Mexican broadcaster and Colombian producers are teaming up for TV version of best-selling book.
MEXICO CITY -- Mexican broadcaster Televisa and Colombian producer RTI have acquired rights for a television adaptation of the award-winning novel Diablo Guardian (Guardian Devil).
Winner of the Alfaguara, one of Latin America's most prestigious literary prizes, Mexican author Xavier Velasco's popular book centers on the adventures of a rebellious 15-year-old girl who flees her native Mexico and later finds herself immersed in a world of vice in New York.
Production on the television version of the novel begins in several months. The series brings together two big names in Spanish-language television: Televisa, the world's largest producer of Spanish-language content, and Bogota-based RTI, producer of the hit narco-novela La Reina del Sur (Queen of the South).
Televisa and RTI recently signed a co-production pact good through 2019.
