Perfidia gets UK remake

Eccho Rights has inked a deal with DLT Entertainment for a UK adaptation of the award winning Argentinian drama, Perfidia.

Margaret Enefer and Donald Taffner Jr. will develop the project, while acclaimed British writer Alan Whiting (Wire in the Blood, Half Broken Things, The Scarlet Pimpernel) will adapt the three-part drama for UK audiences.

DLT’s President Don Taffner Jr. comments, “Perfidia gripped me right from the start with its combination evocative human emotion, thrilling plot and unexpected twists and turns. With Alan’s exceptional talent, this will be an unmissable piece of television.”

He adds, “This latest development deal is part of DLT Entertainment’s ongoing strategy to bring fresh new formats and ideas to the UK market as we look to develop and invest in our growing drama slate spearheaded by Margaret Enefer.”

This is the second remake deal Eccho Rights have signed with DLT. Last year the prodco optioned Scandinavian hospital drama Nurses (Yellow Film) from the Stockholm based distributor.

Nicola Söderlund, managing partner at Eccho Rights, says, “We’ve been selling a lot of shows into Latin America, so it’s great to announce a deal that sees traffic in the other direction.

"It’s a region that is traditionally known for the telenovela, but Latin America also has a growing reputation for high-end dramas. It's wonderful that DLT have recognised the quality of Perfidia and with a top-class team onboard we are sure the remake will be stunning."

Perfidia follows a group of school friends who embark on a business deal that promises huge gains, but the stakes are high, and their friendship is tested to its limit as jealousy, greed and betrayal puts their futures at risk. 

Originally produced by Cisne Films for Canal 7 in Argentina, Perfidia has also aired on the Sundance Channel in Spain and Portugal. The series was nominated for five awards in Argentina, winning awards for Best Drama Series and Best Actor.
