THEY CAME AT NIGHT is part of the previously announced first look deal between 3Pas Studios and TelevisaUnivision. Inspired by true events, THEY CAME AT NIGHT is a workplace comedy that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the group of underdogs who went on to create the critically acclaimed Spanish version of the 1930 horror classic, “Dracula.” While Bela Lugosi filmed Dracula during the day on the Universal lot, at the end of each day another cast and crew arrived to make the same exact movie… only in Spanish. Using the same sets, costumes, and a translated version of the script, the cast and crew of the Spanish “Dracula” filmed from dusk to dawn and, against all odds, the critical consensus is that the Spanish version turned out to be the better film.Eugenio Derbez will star in the series created and written by Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher (“The Valet” and “Overboard”). Ben Odell, Eugenio Derbez, and Javier Williams will all serve as executive producers under the 3Pas Studios banner. Production services on THEY CAME AT NIGHT will be handled by 3pas Studios’ Mexican production services company, Visceral.“I have not worked in scripted Spanish language TV comedy for well over ten years and was looking for something really special to come back. This story really jumped out at me because it tells the story of Latinos always having to accomplish more with less resources and harder conditions. It’s also a world we’ve never explored in Spanish language TV, Hollywood in the 30s but like every moment in US history, the Latinos were there and doing their part even if history forgot them. And of course, it’s ripe for so much humor…” said Derbez.|
