Pantaya has signed an agreement with Elefantec Global to co-develop and produce a slate of premium series and announced their first three new premium series, La Rebelión de las Esposas (Wives’ Rebellion), Sonido Latino (Latin Sound), and Telenovela (Soap Opera). All productions will premiere exclusively in the U.S. on the Pantaya platform.
Paul Presburger, CEO of Pantaya stated, “We are thrilled to partner with our friends at Elefantec Global. Their impressive track record of creating high-end, culturally relevant content that resonates with different segments of the Hispanic/Latino audience seamlessly aligns with our own company’s mission and values. These additions to the Pantaya offering are a testament to our commitment to providing our valued subscribers with high-quality entertainment via a format and platform designed specifically for them.”
“We are extremely pleased to see that our latest series created by the independent studio we founded 2 years ago are being co-developed with Pantaya, a company led by a team of professionals that we respect and admire,” said Pepe Bastón, co-founder of Elefantec Global. “This multi-series, the premium content agreement enables us to further foster the writing careers of Adriana Pelusi, Fernanda Eguiarte, Carlos Algara as well as many other talented on- and off-screen Latino entertainment professionals who will participate in these productions.”
La Rebelión de las Esposas (Wives’ Rebellion) is a six-episode drama series written by Adriana Pelusi, depicting the consequences of a life-changing decision made by four friends; tired and bored of their marriages, the women reunite and run away together with the hopes of rediscovering themselves and what they really want out of life.
Sonido Latino (Latin Sound) is a dramedy set in Miami that takes us into the world of Latin music through the eyes of a very successful manager who has to balance the passion she feels for her work - managing world-class musicians along with all their eccentricities, and her personal life which is slowly unraveling. The show will cameos from well-known recording artists playing themselves and appearing in each episode. Carlos Algara and Mandy Otero are writing the 8-episode show.
Telenovela (Soap Opera) is based on the format originally produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group in association with Tall and Short Productions and UnbeliEVAble. The new eight-part comedy is written by Fernanda Eguiarte, with Eva Longoria attached to direct the first episode.
