Telemundo viewers will now be able to enjoy primetime series and telenovelas produced by Estudios TeleMéxico, thanks to a new deal announced in mid-April by NBCUniversal Hispanic Group.
The multiyear agreement allows Telemundo to air the Mexico-based studio’s programming in the U.S. and distribute it globally through Telemundo Internacional. Estudios TeleMéxico will produce each series in México or Colombia, in collaboration with Telemundo Studios.
Telemundo’s “Super Series” are presently supplied by Estudios TeleMéxico and Fox Telecolombia, which are sister entities.
Samuel Duque Rozo, CEO of Fox Telecolombia and TeleMéxico Studios, said: “This is the culmination of a longtime desire for us to establish a production partnership with Telemundo, one of the major U.S. networks. We are confident that with our experience in the creation and development of ‘Super Series,’ that knowhow will serve Telemundo well.”
“This agreement will strengthen our prime-time offerings while continuing to provide our international clients the superior product they have come to expect from Telemundo,” Telemundo Network president Luis Silberwasser said.
Among the current offerings from Estudios TeleMéxico are El Capitán Camacho, presently airing on MundoFox; and Lucky Ladies, a reality show airing on Fox Life in the U.S. that puts cameras on the wives of Mexican rock stars.
