ITV Studios Global Entertainment acquires rights to Movistar's Felix ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has announced that it has acquired the international rights to the brand new Movistar+ drama Felix.

An original production by Movistar+, the romantic thriller is directed by Cesc Gay (Truman, Krampack, In the City) and is due to air in 2018, with ITVS GE taking it to the global market outside of Spain.

Filmed on location in Andorra, Madrid and Barcelona, Felix takes place over ten days, where nothing is what it seems and where everything becomes possible. When the love of Felix's life, Julia, disappears, he is distraught and embarks on a journey where he will make discoveries beyond his imagination. He will risk everything, coming face to face with some of the country's most dangerous criminals, and find out whether he is ready to face the truth of Julia's disappearance.

Julie Meldal-Johnsen, Director of Global Content at ITV Studios Global Entertainment, said: “Our continued aim is to be a truly global distributor with an increasingly international portfolio, and this is another example of how we are implementing our strategy. We are delighted to be working with Movistar and excited that Felix is now part of our diverse drama catalogue.”

Ismael Calleja, Head of Business Affairs, Series and movies original programming, at Movistar+, said: “At Movistar we are concerned about producing high-end local content combining innovative narratives and best-in-class production values in order for it to become international. This approach requires us to work with the best partners, such as ITVS GE, and we are really proud to welcome them to our distributors network. It is a pleasure working with them and we are absolutely sure we will continue collaborating on future projects.”
