Monday, October 17, 2016

New Telemundo International Studios launched by NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises, headed up by Marcos Santasa, president of Telemundo International.


The new Telemundo International Studios has been launched by NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises.

The new Telemundo International Studios will help to produce series for international markets with programming that will very likely show up in future on channels like Telemundo Africa (DStv 118) on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform.

MultiChoice carries the channel from NBCUniversal International Networks with its Spanish telenovelas in dubbed English and Portuguese in South Africa and across the African continent.

Marcos Santana, president of Telemundo International, will head up Telemundo International Studios that will be based in Miami in the United States.

Telemundo International Studios will "generate content that can travel to all platforms, from broadcast to pay-TV and digital media".

"Telemundo International Studios will tap into an international growth opportunity at a time when Telemundo has established itself as the number 1 Spanish-language broadcast network in prime time in the United States," says Cesar Conde, chairman of NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises.

"With this new production, we will continue innovating and increasing the level of content production in Spanish in the United States internationally.

"The launch of Telemundo International Studios represents the great growth of our unit, increasing our offer's expansion and our distribution catalog, generating new opportunities for markets and platforms," says Marcos Santana.
