MarVista, TelevisaUnivision content deal
March 2, 2022
Fox Entertainment’s MarVista Entertainment and TelevisaUnivision have entered into a development and production deal involving ten exclusive original Spanish-language movies to be produced for ViX+, the premium SVoD tier of Vix, the Spanish-language streaming service.
As part of the agreement, MarVista will produce ten original Spanish-language films across family, comedy, romance, and holiday genres that will stream exclusively on ViX+, which is scheduled to launch in the second half of the year. Featuring top creative and top on-screen talent from Latin America, TelevisaUnivision will hold worldwide streaming distribution rights for all ten films produced under the deal and MarVista will oversee global distribution outside of streaming and second windows for all platforms.
“It is an incredible honour to be a founding creative production partner of TelevisaUnivision on the launch of ViX+,” said Szew. “MarVista and FOX Entertainment take great pride in being leaders in delivering diverse stories and premium content across multiple genres for all viewers. We’re looking forward to introducing these initial ten films to what undoubtedly will be a fast-growing and leading streamer within the Spanish-speaking market.”
MarVista’s deal with TelevisaUnivision on ViX+ marks its continued expansion in Latin America by providing locally produced, multicultural, Spanish-language content for existing and emerging platforms throughout the region and around the world. Recent Spanish-speaking films produced by MarVista include Operacion Feliz Navidad for HBO Max in Latin America; and El Robo del Siglo, which is currently streaming on HBO Max in the US.
