This is Sonoro´s & Tenderfoot TV First Fiction Crime Drama Debut featuring Actress Stephanie Cayo and Singer Tessa Ía
Sonoro and Tenderfoot TV announce their first co-production by launching Ciudad Mágica, a new crime fiction drama series in Spanish. This alliance will allow both companies to expand to other markets including the Spanish-speaking community around the world. Ciudad Mágica is a fiction and crime drama set in Miami, the Magic City. The two leading characters were voiced by the Peruvian actress Stephanie Cayo (Club de Cuervos, Hasta Que Nos Volvamos a Encontrar on Netflix) and the Mexican singer and actress Tessa Ía (Narcos: Mexico, Desenfrenadas on Netflix).
“Ciudad Mágica is a great milestone because it’s our first non-English podcast for Tenderfoot TV. We’re expanding the way we deliver content internationally and partnering with Sonoro allows us to elevate diverse talent while breaking through language barriers to reach new markets.”
Donald Albright, President & Co-Founder Tenderfoot TV
The heroine of this story is Carolina Echegui (Stephanie Cayo), a popular local news reporter who is persistent about demonstrating her journalistic skills and initiates a public investigation into the disappearance of Vicky Aranda (Tessa Ía). Aranda is a well-known influencer and reggaeton singer who has been missing for days. Her fans are worried sick and are hoping to make her disappearance go viral in order to help find her. Each episode dive into new twists of the investigation that Carolina uncovers, building theories about the mystery of Vicky and the dark world that surrounds the artist.
This is the first co-production between chart-topping Sonoro, and Tenderfoot TV, a U.S. leader in the podcasting industry with more than 700 million global downloads. Tenderfoot is the studio behind the true crime hit podcast “Up and Vanished,” as well as 2019’s AP Podcast of the Year, “To Live and Die in LA,” the latter of which had two seasons that focused on women who disappeared pursuing their dreams in entertainment. A premise similar to the fictionalized Ciudad Mágica.
Ciudad Mágica is another project by Sonoro that provides its Latin audience with original stories that represent them. Where everyday situations such as immigration, human rights, LGBTQ+ relationships, and the gender gap of women in their work environment is at the forefront.
“At Sonoro, we are producing award-winning global content, in fiction and nonfiction. Our partnership with Tenderfoot TV extends the reach of our nonfiction projects while also experimenting with new ways to tell stories anchored in true events. Our first series together, Ciudad Mágica, is the perfect blend of Tenderfoot’s legacy of producing blockbuster true crime hits and Sonoro’s prowess in scripted content.”
Camila Victoriano, Co-Founder of Sonoro
This six-episode podcast series is available to binge on all podcast platforms beginning August 8, 2022.
