The adaptation will be developed by Gaumont’s Latin American team from Los Angeles.

Alex Avon, Vice President of Global Distribution for Amuz Distribution (Amuz) announced its first deal since the recent rebrand from ComediHa! Distribution.

This development involves a format license agreement for the highly acclaimed scripted comedy series, Writer’s Block. Amuz, an international distribution company, focuses on delivering exceptional comedy and heartwarming scripted and unscripted content.

Gaumont U.S. has secured the rights to produce a Spanish version of this comedy series, making it the first sale of the intellectual property (IP) in over a decade. The project will be overseen by their Latin American team, based in Los Angeles.

Writer’s Block, recipient of 11 Gémeaux Awards (the highest TV accolades in Quebec), tells the story of two TV showrunners who find themselves at the end of their creative ropes. Following the colossal failure of their far-fetched crime drama series, The Law of Justice, they are compelled by their producers to produce another season. Determined to regain their reputation and dispel notions of being shallow researchers, they embark on a quest to acquire genuine criminal experiences that will infuse authenticity into their second season. Will their efforts to replicate fiction in reality bring credibility to their script, or will they unwittingly attract the attention of more sinister forces? As fiction collides head-on with reality, a twisted sense of humor ensues.

Avon said: “Amuz Distribution is excited to close the first deal with our new company brand and are especially pleased that it is with Gaumont – a truly fantastic partner. We are looking forward to seeing the Spanish-language version of Writer’s Block and are sure that everyone will enjoy the series. This deal ensures that we are continuing our mission of keeping the world feeling good!”
