Telemundo International Studios and Globo announced the co-production of the premium limited series “Jugar con Fuego” (Playing with Fire) slated to premiere on Telemundo network in the U.S. next year.  The 10-episode series is an adaptation of Globo’s premium limited series “Amores “Roubados”, originally written by George Moura and directed in Brazilian version by José Luiz Villamarim. Shot entirely on location in the Colombian coffee “triangle,” “Jugar con Fuego” is executive produced by Marcos Santana, President of Telemundo Global Studios and Ximena Cantuarias for Telemundo; together with Diego Ramírez and Nancy Fernández for 64 A Films, and Tony Plana.

“We are thrilled to produce our second short-format scripted series in partnership with Globo, one of the most prestigious production houses in the world,” said Santana. “The expertise and high quality of Telemundo International Studios, coupled with Globo’s decades of world-class content production, will set a new standard in scripted content for U.S. Hispanics and audiences around the world.”

“We at Globo are immensely happy to announce this partnership with Telemundo, with whom we have had a history of successful co-productions. In the last few years, we have adopted a structure that allows Globo Studios to act as an artistic and intelligence hub for content creation and production, whether for the national market or in co-production for the international market, with the co-production of ‘Jugar con Fuego’ marking this special moment”, says Raphael Corrêa Netto, Globo’s International Business Executive Director.

Camila and Martina, married women who are great friends - and Andrea, Martina’s daughter. His arrival from Mexico will disrupt, in a terrible and permanent way, the life of the homes in the prosperous Colombian coffee zone, and his incursion into a forbidden territory will confirm that Playing with Fire ... can bring terrible consequences.
