A+E Networks Latin America will launch for the last quarter of the year three big productions on its channels: El Embarcadero (Atresmedia Studios and Vancouver Studios) on Lifetime on November 19 in Mexico and Brazil; Hernán (Dopamine and Onza Entertainment) on Friday November 22 with a double episode (8x60’, two seasons) on History (Mexico and Colombia) and the five seasons of Narcos (13x60’) on A&E, whose first episodes will have its debut on November 25.
These series will also be available in the group´s entire digital ecosystem: History Play, A&E Play y Lifetime Play.
The debut of Hernán on History for Chile and Argentina will be on Sunday, November 24, simultaneously with Amazon and Azteca 7.
“A very strong last quarter of the year. We are coming with solid growth in 2019. We´ve managed to grow between 10 and 25% on our four brands -History, H2, A&E and Lifetime- in LatAm, versus last year. We think all our users will enjoy these three mega productions we will have as of November," pointed out Eddy Ruiz, president and general manager of A+E Networks Latin America.
He highlights that for Narcos, A&E he dubbed the main character, Pablo Escobar -played by the Brazilian actor Wagner Moura- into Spanish, with an accent from Medellín, Colombia, that was more interesting for them than how it originally came out in Netflix.
The second season of Narcos will be launched on December 9, the third on Monday, January 6, 2020 and the fourth on Monday, January 20. The fifth depends on when they finish shooting and after it is released on Netflix, who has the first window.
