Santiago Galindo, an established and respected producer at Televisa who helmed a slew of successful shows, including entertainment blockbusters Pequeños Gigantes and Bailando por un Sueño (Dancing for a Dream), has died. According to published reports, Galindo was found dead inside his car Wednesday morning of an apparent suicide, although no formal cause of death has been provided by authorities.

Galindo worked for years alongside his cousin Ruben Galindo in conceiving and producing some of Spanish-language television’s most successful formats and shows, many of them music-centric. Most recently, he and Ruben Galindo had produced Hoy Voy a Cambiar, a miniseries based on the life of Mexican singer Lupita D’Alessio.

News of Galindo’s death was greeted with shock and consternation by the Mexican and Latin American entertainment community, with the producer becoming a trending topic on Twitter.

“At Televisa, we are saddened by the death of our producer colleague Santiago Galindo,” the media company tweeted. “Authorities are investigating his death as it happened in a public road. We ask respect for his friends and family.”

Galindo’s very long line of credits began in film. Early in his career, he produced the horror film Vacacines de Terror, starring ranchera star Pedrito Fernandez, and later, he helmed the Gloria Trevi movies Pelo Suleto and Zapatos Viejos.

Trevi, in fact, was one of many Mexican celebrities who posted heartfelt condolences online after Galindo’s death. “So saddened to learn of the death of my friend, director and producer Santiago Galindo,” wrote Trevi. “Thankful to him for the time and faith he gave me.”
