“Witness 36”, the new Oficina Burman production (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO), wins the Series Mania Berlinale Series Market Award

The series is a spy thriller directed by Daniel Burman

“Witness 36”, THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO's latest series, has won the coveted Series Mania award after its presentation at the Co-Pro Series at the Berlinale Series Market. The production, a spy-thriller in the development phase produced by Oficina Burman (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO) and directed by Daniel Burman, which will be distributed worldwide by The Mediapro Studio Distribution, thus ensures its presence at the festival’s Co-Pro Pitch to be held this coming March in Lille.

"Witness 36" was written by Natacha Caravia ("Yosi, the Regretful Spy"), Juan Matías Carballo ("Love After Music", "The Roar of the Butterflies"), also Head of Content at Oficina Burman, and Daniel Burman himself ("Lost Embrace", "Yosi, the Regretful Spy"). The series also features the participation of American producer Michael Nozik, who joined the team of Oficina Burman (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO) on this project. Nominated for an Oscar for "Quiz Show" and winner of a British Academy Award (Bafta) for Best Foreign Language Film for "The Motorcycle Diaries," Nozik also produced films including "Syriana," "The Legend of Bagger Vance" and "Love in the Time of Cholera," among many others.

The leading character in "Witness 36" is English writer Laura MacGill. A coalition of the world’s major international intelligence agencies has decided to create an extraterritorial witness protection program to safeguard individuals whose revelations could put global stability at risk, code named the Tzaddik program. Given its geopolitical isolation and historical neutrality, Argentina is the country chosen to implement the program in its pilot phase and this is where Laura comes in. While ensuring she refrains from maintaining any personal contact with the witnesses, MacGill is charged with designing new identities to be assumed by those witnesses in the program. Her life comes apart at the seams when she meets a man whose profile turns out to be an accurate reflection of one of the false identities she herself created.
