Latin America's "Breaking Bad" Is Coming, Complete With Hilarious Translations
Walter Blanco, Jose (Jesse), Cielo (Skylar), Henry (Hank) and the gang are back in Metastasis!
Sony is bringing Breaking Bad to Latin America. That's not Walter White below, it's Walter Blanco.
The show will be called Metástasis, which is a reference to metastasizing cancer. It is a Colombian series, which has already been presold to all major Spanish-speaking markets across Latin America, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Besides Jose (Jesse) and Henry (Hank), there is also Cielo for Skylar, which means sky in Spanish.
The show will also air on Univision's UniMas network in the U.S.
"Breaking Bad is a fantastic series that wasn't widely seen in Latin America, partly because cable doesn't yet have full penetration in the region," says Angelica Guerra, Sony Pictures Television senior vice president and managing director of production for Latin America and the U.S. Hispanic market. "[But] there is a universality to the story and its characters that we recognized could work very well."
