As part of Univision´s reorientation strategy in their central businesses and platforms, the company is closing their original content studio, Story House Entertainment.
Story House Entertainment, founded in Los Angeles a bit over two years ago (May 2016) in the aim to develop and produce original content for Univision and for third-party channels and platforms, made several successful projects such as the three seasons of El Chapo
with Netflix; Outpost
and Hate in America for HBO.
Univision informed that Tijuana
, Univision’s and Netflix’s latest production–that is currently in post-production phase—will be aired at the beginning of next year and will have its debut nationwide on Netflix.
The company assured in a statement that “scripted series remain central to Univision’s strategic focus and the company will continue to collaborate with Televisa on innovative scripted content. Univision will also be increasing its investments in the acquisition of another third-party programming
. Univision’s exclusive relationship with Televisa, the largest program producer in the Spanish speaking world, will help ensure that our consumers have the best content experience across all our media platforms.”
Camila Jiménez Villa as president of Story House Entertainment and Chief Content Officer at Fusion Media Group was the supervisor of the unit.
