Germany’s Beta Group has set up Beta Fiction Spain, which will produce television series and feature films, offer production services, and act as a theatrical distribution arm.

Beta Fiction Spain will be headed up by Mercedes Gamero, the former general manager of Atresmedia Cine, and Pablo Nogueroles, who was senior vice president at Warner Bros. Pictures International España. They will work closely with Christian Gockel, who heads all Beta Group’s Spanish activities.

Beta Fiction Spain is the second Spanish subsidiary of Beta Group alongside Beta Entertainment Spain, headed by Javier Pérez de Silva, which creates new and adapts international unscripted entertainment formats.

Gamero was part of Atresmedia for 18 years, with credits including Klaus, Futbolín and Marshland. She previously headed acquisitions and film co-productions at Telemadrid as well as at AXN Channel Spain and Sogecable.

Nogueroles was general manager of Warner Bros. Pictures International España from 2006 and senior vice president from 2017. Before joining Warner Bros, Nogueroles worked at Yelmo Cineplex, Buena Vista International and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
