"We are proud of the international success that MTV's Latin America novellas have had throughout the region, the United States and Europe. With this new production, MTV is committed to keep innovating; this novella has a different youth direction, it has a touch of psychological thriller and it's being produced entirely in Mexico," commented Fernando Gaston, SVP of Production and Programming, MTV Latin America.
Written by Josefina Fernandez (Chilean), whose scriptwriters include Claudia Bono (Ninas Mal and Popland), Francisca Bernardi and Hugo Morales, ULTIMO ANO is a youthful psychological thriller, which tells the story of a group of students belonging to the high class: Martin, an apparently ideal teenager, arrives at an elite school as part of a student exchange program. He lives with Benjamin, a popular kid with whom he built a good friendship but both of them fall in love with the same girl, Celeste. Mistrust develops when a conniving Martin steals his friends, his popularity and his entire life. Faced with disbelief from family and friends, Benjamin begins to wage a solitary battle to unmask the real Martin.
The cast also includes Julia Urbini (Mexican-Argentinian), Dolores Gomez (Mexican), Paola Galina (Mexican), Michel Duval (Mexican), Norman Delgadillo (Mexican), Leopoldo Marin (Mexican), Martin Navarrete (Mexican), Maria Jose Suarez (Mexican) y Juan De Dios (Mexican), amongst others.
ULTIMO ANO marks MTV's first partnership with the NGO, Population Media Center (PMC), to integrate in its scripts and creative pieces, issues that may raise social awareness amongst the audience. Through the use of entertainment-education programming, characters will be developed to evolve into role models for the audience, encouraging the adoption of healthier behaviors to benefit individuals and their societies
