Meet Walter Blanco: ‘Breaking Bad’ Gets Spanish-Language Version
by Scott Roxborough 
As Vince Gilligan’s creation ends with record U.S. ratings, Sony TV preps a Colombian version — but no RV this time.

Meet Walter Blanco. He’s the flawed lead character in Metastasis, a new Colombian series from Sony Pictures Television with a bold premise: It’s about this chemistry teacher who becomes a methamphetamine cook. It’s Breaking Bad. In Spanish.

As U.S. fans of Vince Gilligan's Emmy-winning drama enter postfinale withdrawal, Sony and Colombian producer Teleset are hoping to hook Latin Americans on the story of Walter, partner Jose (Jesse), wife Cielo (Skyler) and brother-in-law — and narcotics agent — Henry Navarro (Hank).
“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, SPT senior vp 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.”

SPT has presold the first season of Metastasis to all major Spanish-speaking markets across Latin America as well as to Univision’s UniMas network in the U.S.
