EL TERRAT (The Mediapro Studio) started in 1989. The first project was “El Terrat de Radio”, a programme with Andreu Buenafuente on Radio Reus (Cadena SER). This humorous programme in the midday slot surprised everyone with its freshness and ability to innovate and it has lead to almost 25 years of audiovisual production. During all this time the company has successfully produced television and radio programmes, movies and documentaries, shows for theatre, books, advertisements and internet formats.
The first television programme by EL TERRAT was “Sense títol” (“Without title”) (TV3, 1995). EL TERRAT has been growing ever since: more than 100 programmes have been produced for the main Spanish television channels (making up altogether more than 5.000 hours of broadcasting), a score of books have been published, a large number of projects for the internet, lots of branded contents have been created, have been made and about ten plays have been produced for theatre so far.
Its goal is to create and produce entertainment and fiction formats for any medium such as television, internet, theatre, cinema… It has the mission and vocation to cover the artistic needs of the creative partners while at the same time pursuing the recruitment of the best external talents. To that end, EL TERRAT comes with an expertised team on fiction (TV and cinema), new formats, humour and entertainment, internet, adverstising and marketing.
