WarnerMedia (AT&T) has announced this last Wednesday, March 17th, that the filming process of ‘Bunker’, a new Max Original filmed in Mexico, has finished. The series will be exclusively available on HBO Max, the company’s new SVOD OTT, which will be launched in Latin America in June. Up to now, the release date of the title is not confirmed.
‘’Bunker’ shows, once again, the enormous talent and quality with which productions are made in Latin America. Even in this challenging and pandemic context, with strict protocols, great efforts are put forward to continue telling the best stories and bringing them to our audiences in the region’, said Ricardo Pichetto, Head of Production at WarnerMedia Latin America.
According to the information reported from WarnerMedia, Bunker’s filming process began in January, led by the Mexican content producer Dopamine (Grupo Salinas), and with the strict application of a sanitary protocol by the entire production team and the artistic talent involved in the project.
As reported when it was officially announced, ‘Bunker’ is an action comedy, whose plot will focus on Vladimiro, a middle-aged man who has lost the respect of his wife and children, and finds peace only in a bunker located in the basement of his home, until fate causes him to experience a series of episodes full of tangles, action and fun. The series will run for eight episodes of half an hour each.
Another of the Max Originals that WarnerMedia is currently working on is titled ‘Dias de Gallos’, a series shot in Buenos Aires, Argentina, focused on the world of freestyle battles and produced by Zeppelin Studios, which will run for ten 45-minutes episodes each.
During AT & T’s last Investor Day, the company announced that it plans to launch an AVOD version of HBO Max in June. Although the SVOD OTT is scheduled to arrive at Latin America that same month, the company did not confirm whether the AVOD version will be available in the region. In addition, AT&T announced that by the end of 2021 it plans to launch HBO Max in 60 territories, of which 39 will be completed in June with the launch of the SVOD OTT in Latin America. The remaining 21 will take place in the second half of the year, when HBO Max launches in Europe.
