Profile

edit

The company started as the telenovela-production unit for TV Azteca with Nada personal and has since then produced many telenovelas for this network. It also co-produced Sexo, pudor y lágrimas in 1999 directed by Antonio Serrano who has directed five telenovelas and another film (Lucía, Lucía) with Argos. In 2001, Argos signed a contract with Telemundo to produce telenovels for this network and has since then produced nine, including Gitanas. Argos also owns an acting school, CasAzul, a music unit, Argos Música, and a theater production unit, Argos Teatro. Most of the content produced by Argos is filmed in the majestic Estudios Churubusco that were used to produce all the films during the Mexican gold film era.

As of December 31, 2006, Argos will no longer be co-producing any new projects with Telemundo. Argos has made a deal with TV Azteca to start production of new content. They have Casablanca in pre-production which is slated to start sometime in February 2007.[needs update] Argos will finish up the production of Marina and a few episodes of Decisiones with Telemundo. Also for 2007, Argos is producing a mini-series for HBO Latin America starring Ana de la Reguera.

Zoom TV

edit

It started out as a website with original content, a reality show with fixed cameras in a real house called Inquilino. Visitors to this website were able to go into a chat room and talk live to the renters living in the house. It also had an internet radio station where Osvaldo Benavides hosted a weekend show.

Zoom TV was the precursor of what Argos' dubbed as "la tercera mirada" (the third look), a new television station, that would compete directly with the giant Televisa and TV Azteca (whom they had just broke ties with). It was in January 2002 when this new TV station would emerge, but legal issues prevented Argos from tubing and this venture as well as the website disappeared.

The programming was to be color-coded based on the content it was showing. For example, red was to be for adults only, while yellow was for the whole family. CEO of Argos, Epigmenio Ibarra does not lose hope that some day, he will have an output in his homeland Mexico, but for now he will only work as a content generator.
