Endemol Shine Boomdog also recently produced scripted hit El Vato for both Netflix and Universo and is developing dramas To Selena with Love, El Clan and Súbete a Mi Moto—The History of Menudo.

We recently began our push into developing high-quality scripted content and Leo’s arrival will undoubtedly supercharge our efforts. We are all excited about his arrival. Leo will be in charge of all the company´s fiction productions and the development of all the fiction projects we have announced, such as El Clan, Nicky Jam, Súbete a Mi Moto (Menudo) and others we haven't announced yet.
