Mondo TV unveils first-ever movie

Studio breaks into the feature length business with first film based on its hit Heidi Bienvenida property

Mondo TV Iberoamerica, part of the Italian group Mondo TV, has announced its first major movie project at MIPTV 2018.

For the first time in the history of Mondo TV, the company is to produce a major film, which will be based on Heidi Bienvenida, Mondo TV’s highly successful live-action comedy-drama for teens, about the adventures of a happy and carefree girl who leaves her beloved mountain home to live in the big city.

Maria Bonaria Fois, General Manager of Mondo TV Iberoamerica, said: “We are thrilled to be able to announce this exciting project. Expect a feast of adventure, comedy, music, magic and much, much more as Heidi comes to the big screen!”

Like the TV series, the film will be co-produced by Mondo TV Iberoamerica and Alianzas Producciones and will be written by the legendary Argentinian author Marcela Citterio. The screenplay will be adapted from the Heidi book Citterio is writing for leading Italian publisher Mondadori.

As well as the co-producers and writer, many of the enormously popular cast members from the TV show will be part of the transition to the big screen, adding to the excitement for the fast-growing fan base of Heidi Bienvenida.

Visitors to MIPTV can hear more about the film at stand P-1.N1 / P-1.M2, where Mondo TV Iberoamerica will be discussing pre-sales of the Heidi movie with interested show attendees.
