MONACO, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Profugos and Mulher de Fases, the successful productions of HBO Latin America, were nominated for the Golden Nymph at the Monte Carlo Television Festival in the Best Drama TV Series and Best Comedy TV Series categories. 

“It is an honor for HBO Latin America to once again have two original productions like Profugos and Mulher de Fases be nominated for this award,” stated Luis Peraza, HBO LA’s executive vice president of Original Production.  He also added, “This honor is a true recognition of HBO’s commitment to create the highest quality content in the region.”

Profugos is a dramatic series filmed entirely in Chile, which revolves around a failed drug trafficking operation that triggers a frantic pursuit by the mafia and by law enforcement for those responsible, causing them to desperately flee across the Chilean countryside.  The series, which combines drama and action, has allowed HBO to have solid impact on its audience with the content of impeccable quality that is produced regionally. 

Mulher de Fases was the first comedy by HBO Latin America Originals, and it was the channel’s first incursion into the genre.  Mulher de Fases follows the adventures of Gracia (Elisa Volpatto) a real estate agent, who after her divorce, is searching for the ideal man to start her life over with.  The fun begins when the protagonist transforms herself and changes her personality depending on the current suitor.
