Sky gave little away about the plot of Blocco 181 (working title), but it will revolve around themes of power struggles, love, generational conflicts and female emancipation.
Nicola Maccanico, EVP Programming at Sky Italia, described it as a “collision of storytelling, music and the diverse cultures,” while Salmo said it will touch on themes of “chaos, vitality, power, weaknesses, conflicts, passion.”
The artist will star in Blocco 181, as well as serve as creative and music producer. The series will be made in-house by Sky Studios, with input from Red Joint Film. Nils Hartmann, director of original production at Sky Italia, will lead on the project for the Comcast-owned broadcaster.
Blocco 181 is poised to go into production next year.
