Peabody Award-winning Gen-Z Media is translating its all-ages smash hit podcast Six Minutes into Spanish. Six Minutes is the most successful scripted family podcast in history, with over 150 million downloads and counting. The Spanish language version, SEIS MINUTOS, is already available since September 9 with episodes releasing twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Fridays, for nearly 2 years of continuous programming.
SEIS MINUTOS tells the story of Holiday, a girl found floating in the water off the coast of Juneau, Alaska with no memory of who she is or how she got there. Adopted by the family that discovered her on a whale-watching trip, Holiday starts to unravel the mystery of her past alongside her new family, only to uncover an even bigger, high-stakes mystery, with her at the center.
I had the opportunity to speak with director Paco Correa, from Pacovision, who adapt the famous podcast into Spanish. We chatted about the adaptation, picking the right voices, challenges, and more.
Here is the video interview in Spanish with Paco Correa:
With a singular focus on the youth audience, creating identifiable and compelling characters for pre-teens and teens, Gen-Z Media is the leader in the family and four-quadrant space, with deals at Amazon Music / Wondery and their shows being developed as film / TV for buyers such as Disney, Warner Media, Mimo Studios and more. Their recent launch of the “Annie”-reimagined audio drama Tomorrow stars Tony Award-winning Laura Benanti (Supergirl, Into The Woods), Lance Reddick (John Wick, The Wire) and Alan Ruck (Succession, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off).
