Reimagined ‘Telenovela’ Among New Series
As part of that deal, the companies announced its first round of collaborations including a reimagined version of NBC’s Telenovela from Eva Longoria. Longoria, who is married to Elefantec Global’s co-founder Pepe Baston, is set to direct the premiere episode. The other two greenlit projects headed to Pantaya domestically are La Rebelión de las Esposas (Wives’ Rebellion) and Sonido Latino (Latin Sound).
“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 Baston. “This significant deal represents another important step in helping us to realize our vision of bringing together top Latino creative talent to develop content for the global Latino Audience.”
