WarnerMedia Latin America has announced that Luis Peraza, president of Networks for HBO Latin America, and Roberto Ríos, Corporate Vice President of Original Production for HBO Latin America, will be leaving the company effective February 28, and February 20, respectively.
Peraza is part of the founding team that launched HBO in Latin America in 1991 and is a pioneer of the audiovisual industry in the region, having been responsible for the development of the first premium local content in the market, investing in original programming, and discovering new talent.
Since then, Peraza was responsible for the production of more original content than any other premium entertainment subscription-based service in the region, with early productions such as Epitafios and Mandrake.
Rios joined HBO in 1994 as a programming executive and the first employee in Brazil, where he helped launch the company locally. He later assumed the role of Vice President of Acquisitions and Programming and went on to become head of Original Production for the brand in the region. Over the past 27 years, he managed and participated in the acquisition of broadcasting rights for thousands of films and programs, as well as in the production of over 800 hours of local original content that aired via the HBO and Cinemax signals throughout Latin America and the rest of the world.
