Nova Vita is a ten-episode series, which has already been filmed, and was created and executive produced by Bagrat and Vaagn Sargsyan. USA TV Productions is currently seeking distribution. In a statement to Variety, Bagrat Sargsyan said, “Nova Vita is seeking a network or streaming platform for distribution. We decided to announce the completed project now as we believe Nova Vita will be a much-welcomed escape for TV audiences around the world facing these difficult times. The high-concept thriller is a very popular genre with viewers, both young and old. We can see what has resonated on Netflix, Amazon and HBO and Nova Vita will be a plug and play series for the right outlet.” E! founder Larry Namer, who is also backing the series, added, “With Hollywood production at a standstill, broadcasters and streaming platforms are hungry for quality content like Nova Vita. The series has it all: luxury lifestyle, international crime, conspiracy and intrigue. It’s sure to have great appeal for viewers around the globe.”

Nova Vita is written by Scott Windhauser and directed by Santiago Salviche, who has worked on music videos for Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey and Marc Anthony. Watch the trailer for this exciting new series here on Soaps.com.
