Most of them are already known in Latin America and Spanish-speaking countries - sci-fi movies, dramas and horrors from Russia traditionally present national industry on top TV channels, platforms and theatres around Latin America.
"MIPCancun grows every year, in terms of numbers and buyers representation from the largest TV networks to VOD-platforms. This reflects the ever-growing Hispanic market itself, which has already shown interest in Russian horrors, sci-fi, period dramas and animation. This year the national delegation is twice as big as in 2019, and will present a slate of fresh content, which is possible due to the digital format of MIPCancun," says Alexandra Modestova, CEO of Expocontent (Official representative of MIPCancun in Russia, Ukraine and CIS).
The leading Russian content distributor Central Partnership (part of Gazprom Media) will present a fantastic series “Gogol” based on the famous novels by Nikolay Gogol starring Alexander Petrov (“Invasion”), TV series “Bolshoi” about the backstage of ballet world by Valeriy Todorovskiy (“Six Empty Seats”) and sci-fi series “The Blackout” directed by Egor Baranov. “The Blackout” is already known to international audiences, having been sold to more than 100 countries including USA, Japan, South Korea, Germany and others.
Flagship titles in the NTV’s lineup are TV show “Secret for a Million”, historical series “Noble Detective” and a new season of “Beyond Death”. The company will highlight its vast catalogue at the dedicated showcase to be held on the MIP Cancun Online+ platform on 19th of November.

Another drama from Yegor Anashkin, "The Blood Widow" starring Yulia Snigir (“The Young Pope”) centers around a Russian noblewoman known as a sadist and serial killer. These titles are part of the package acquired by Olympusat: the companies are now finalizing negotiations on the deal, which will also include series “Ekaterina: Pretenders”, "Godunov", “Blackout”, “The Optimists” and “Demon of the revolution”. Colombian state TV channel Senal Colombia has also confirmed the acquisition of series “Ekaterina: Pretenders”, the first two seasons of which have already been aired on the channel.

Yellow, Black and White and its streaming service START present a new mystery thriller “SHERLOCK: The Russian Chronicles”, Russian spin on one of the world’s most famous characters - the project has already been marked by The Wit company in Fresh TV Fiction and attracted interest from the sherlockian community in the UK and USA.

The studio will also show a premiere episode of a 3D reboot of the popular gag-сomedy “I’ll Get You!”. The company will be looking for co-production partners for new titles “Umka” and “Frosh”.
Key projects by RIKI Group, which will take part in the co-production forum, are the educational comedy series “Question Club”, therapeutic fantasy comedy “The Amazing Spoilers”, and series “Above the Ceiling” for preschoolers.
