Posted on 2009-03-26

Miami, March 26th , 2009 – HBO Latin America GroupSM has announced that on April 19 they will begin broadcasting the second season of the successful series EpitafiosTM in that region. EpitafiosTM , whose first season enthralled fans of the psycho-suspense and horror genres, once again will feature Julio Chavez and Cecilia Roth in the roles of detectives Renzo Marquez and Marina Segal, respectively.

Both are under the orders of Police Superintendant Mazzoni, played this time by Daniel Fanego. The homicide squad also has a new member, Mariano Lagos (Juan Minujin), who aids the investigation with his very unique gift: an extremely keen sense of smell that allows him to anticipate the plans of the new serial killer (Leonardo Sbaraglia).

The second season of EpitafiosTM, the first suspense series that HBO® has launched in Latin America, was produced by Pol-Ka and written by the same pair of brothers who also authored the first season, Walter and Marcelo Slavich. The directing was handled by Daniel Barone and Alberto Lecchi, who also was one of the directors during the first season.

“The second season of Epitafios TM takes the suspense to a new level. The idea is to combine top-notch acting with impeccable production. I’m sure that this new season will leave fans of this genre more than satisfied and captivate new viewers,” said Luis Peraza, Senior Vice-President of production and acquisitions for HBO LAGSM.
