15 de noviembre de 2018
Amazon and Viacom International Studios (VIS) have closed a content deal for Latin America that will bring two new VIS productions to Prime Video, Homens? and Dani Who?, which will only be available to stream exclusively on Prime Video.
Created by Porta dos Fundos, Brazil’s top comedy content provider and part of the VIS portfolio of brands, Homens? is a comedy series starring Fabio Porchat that follows four very close friends who are dealing with the conflicts of understanding what it means to be a man.
Recently produced in Brazil and slated for a 2019 premiere, Homens? takes a look at what men want and can do in today’s world.
In the dramatic series Dani Who?, created by VIS and produced by Argos, Dani and her friends investigate their shared origin after the disappearance of a friend. They discover they possess unique abilities, which leads them to believe they may not be from this world, but they later find out their story hides even darker and deeper secrets. Dani Who? is scheduled to begin production in 2019.
“Amazon is committed to delivering great content to our Prime Video members across Latin America and this new relationship with the VIS team will bring two new and compelling stories to our service for audiences to enjoy. We remain focused on adding locally relevant content, so we’re especially thrilled about adding Homens? to our catalog of titles as an exclusive Brazilian series,” said Pablo Iacoviello, Head of Content for Latin America, Amazon Prime Video.
“We are very happy to be working with Amazon on this important deal for our Viacom International Studios. Since presenting our new slate of programming earlier this year, we have worked closely with the team at Amazon to create a tailor-made package to fulfill their content needs for Latin America and to extend the reach of our product throughout the region. We look forward to continuing this partnership to deliver high-quality series to our shared audiences across the region,” commented Pierluigi Gazzolo, president, VIMN - Americas.
Both Homens? and Dani Who? join Prime Video’s growing slate of exclusive streaming titles in Latin America which include Falco, The Good Doctor and Mr. Robot, in addition to local original series which to date include critically acclaimed series Diablo Guardian and Un Extraño Enemigo, as well as the upcoming LOL: Last One Laughing which stars Eugenio Derbez and premieres globally on December 14.
