Venevision, the Cisneros Media production company based in Miami, said it has formed an alliance with well-known executive producer Cristina Palacio to develop new series targeted at the U.S. Hispanic market.
Palacio recently served as president and founder of BE-TV, a production company based in Bogota, Colombia. She was responsible for the development and production of a number of highly successful shows, such as “Los Infiltrados,” “El Cartel de los Sapos,” “La Isla,” “Las Muñecas de la Mafia,” and “Minuto Para Ganar”, among others.
“This partnership with Cristina Palacio strengthens our commitment to continue providing high quality original content under the Cisneros Media brand,” said Venevision Studios EVP of Operations Juan Carlos Sosa in a statement. “We have established a new management team that has implemented the strategy of investing resources for the creation and development of innovative content to satisfy the needs of Hispanic audiences.”
Venevision produces a wide variety of programs from talk shows and variety shows to acclaimed telenovelas and series, which are broadcast in the United States and Puerto Rico exclusively by the television networks of Univision Communications, and commercialized around the world by Cisneros Media Distribution, which distributes television programming to more than 100 countries and 20 languages. It founded its Miami production studios in 2004 and produces three daily shows from that location: “¿Quién Tiene La Razón?,” “Casos De Familia,” and “Tu Desayuno Alegre;” in addition to original productions such as “Eva Luna,” “Corazón Apasionado,” “El Talismán”, “Rosario,” “Cosita Linda,” “DeMente Criminal,” and currently “Voltea Pa’ Que Te Enamores.”
“It is a pleasure to work with Venevision Productions,” Palacio said in a statement. “I value their years of experience in this market, along with their state-of-the-art facilities and incredibly talented team. It’s a perfect fit.”
