Viacom will open a two-stage, 88,000 square foot, state-of-the-art production facility in Miami, Florida. The new studio, which was built by the Miami Omni Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) as a public-private partnership with EUE/Screen Gems Studios, will serve as a production hub for Viacom’s global entertainment brands including Nickelodeon, MTV and Comedy Central.
“We are creating more content than ever before across all of our brands at Viacom,” said Robert Bakish, President and CEO of Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN). “The Viacom International Studio in Miami will offer a turnkey facility where we can create even more original, high quality content to meet the increasing demand for long-and-short-form content on all of our global platforms.”
“We have had terrific success with the recent live action productions we have coming from Miami, and we are very excited to be committed to doing more,” said Cyma Zarghami, President, Viacom Kids and Family Group. “We are constantly looking for new creative ideas and content formats that allow us to tell stories in a completely different way, and this facility will certainly forward that effort.”
