Within the framework of the recent Content Americas, TV Azteca announced its new content, highlighting original production in series, reality shows, talk shows, unitary shows, and its return to the production of telenovelas. The network’s presentation had more than 100 guests, including buyers and clients of companies like Amazon, Pluto, Canela, and Telemundo.

“With a lineup that redefines standards, TV Azteca consolidates its position as a leader in the global audiovisual industry. We are committed to excellence, innovation, and diversification of our offering to capture the attention of audiences worldwide. La Captiva, Diana, and La Academia represent a renaissance in our narrative and also a bold leap towards content versatility,” said Adrián Ortega, Content Director of TV Azteca. “Our cooperation with giants such as BBC, Freemantle, Sony, Acunmedya, Eccho Line, and Caracol underlines our unwavering pursuit of quality and originality. At TV Azteca, we are raising the bar of television storytelling to new heights, and we are excited to present these productions that will define the avant-garde in 2024.”

Fernando Muñiz, director of Distribution and Strategic Alliances of TV Azteca, one of the keynote speakers, noted that these productions represent a renaissance of the company’s focus on melodrama and a step toward diversifying its offering, with genres and themes that seek to appeal to an international audience.

One of TV Azteca’s original productions for 2024 includes the telenovela La Captiva (90×60′): In the tireless search for her revenge, a woman embarks on a journey of redemption and justice. During this arduous journey, she brings down a ruthless human trafficking and slave labor network that held her captive and threatened to kill her. However, she does not foresee an unexpected turn of her destiny allowing her to reunite with her daughter, whom she believed lost forever.

Diana (Series 10×60): Diana goes to a dark place when she discovers that behind the disappearance of her daughter, there is a famous “female empowerment” organization that recruits women and disappears them.
