TV series production services in Colombia
TV series production services in Colombia live their golden age for streaming platforms, open channels, and subscription television.
Series, films, short films, videos, television, and in general audiovisual content make up the varied offer that Colombians not only consume today: they also create, produce, film, and, incidentally, generate employment, investment, and consumption in the country. The best thing is that in all these processes, women are gaining prominence.
In the last three years, only for the Netflix streaming platform in the country, there have been six significant productions: Wild District 2, Always Witch 2, History of a crime: Colmenares, Frontera Verde, El Robo del Siglo –which premieres in the second semester - and Chichipatos. Spokespersons for this platform highlight that female talent has boosted the audiovisual industry.
And the government is encouraging this growth with Decree 474 of 2020 issued on March 25 in Colombia. The tax benefits applied with Law 1556 for film production services are extended to the series, which consisted of a 20% cash discount on logistics expenses and 40% in production expenses.
