17 de mayo de 2016

Netflix and Univision Story House, Univision Communications Inc.’s (UCI) new development and production arm, announced that they will co-produce the drama series, El Chapo, based on the life story of one of the world’s most notorious criminals. This will be available to Netflix members in the US after its television airing on UniMás in 2017. “El Chapo is a great example of how Univision continues to innovate and evolve with premium storytelling formats. The IP we’ve developed from more than 50 years of award-winning news and investigations gives us unique and innovative ways to tell stories in a way no other network can,” said Randy Falco, president and CEO of Univision Communications Inc. This announcement is part of an unprecedented promotional and co-production agreement between Netflix and Univision. They have teamed up to bring the first season of Netflix´s acclaimed, Golden Globe nominated original series Narcos to broadcast television on the Univision Network. “Narcos is a huge global success on Netflix and sampling the series to every single Spanish-speaking living room in the U.S. will give additional viewers the opportunity to fall in love with its unique storytelling. Promoting these original shows on Univision is a great way to further reach Hispanic audiences and help them discover Netflix,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. On the other hand, UniMás will air the Spanish-language Netflix original series Club de Cuervos. The seasons 2 of both series will be available exclusively on Netflix later this year, along with the first seasons.
