Earlier this year, Telemundo and NBCUniversal announced the launch of Telemundo International Studios, a new production unit that would shift its focus to Telemundo’s original, hour-long scripted Premium Series. The new studio’s lineup of programming kicked off on September 25 with the 13-chapter prison thriller El Recluso (The Inmate), an adaptation of Argentine series El Marginal. The latter was created by Sebastian Ortega and Mariano Ardanaz, who serve as executive producers of El Recluso. Ardanaz also directed the first batch of episodes, with cinematography by Jaime Reynoso (Netflix’s Bloodline, USA’s Shooter).
