Mipcom: Telemundo and Netflix Strike New International, Domestic Deal

Pact includes exclusive SVOD Latin American rights to super series 'El Chema,' 'Sin Senos Sí Hay Paraíso,' 'Guerra de Idolos'

Telemundo and Netflix have struck a new SVOD content deal that will allow the streaming giant to premiere exclusively in Latin America Telemundo’s newest and anticipated super series, including “El Chema,” “Sin Senos Sí Hay Paraíso” and “Guerra de Idolos.” The pact also encompasses multi-territory on-demand rights for library series such as “La Reina del Sur” and telenovelas like “Pasion de Gavilanes.”

Under the deal, new seasons of super series “El Señor de los Cielos,” a ratings record breaker for Telemundo, will be available exclusively to Netflix members in the U.S.

Following the U.S. premiere on Telemundo of the first season of “El Chema,” a “El Señor de los Cielos” spin-off, the super series will be exclusive to Netflix including subsequent seasons, Telemundo said in a statement Tuesday.

Starring Mauricio Ochmann (“Easy,” “El Señor de los Cielos,” “Capadocia”), the super series exposes the origins and rise of El Chema Venegas, a character previously presented in “El Señor de los Cielos,” and one of the pillars of worldwide organized crime.

“These new deals with our partners at Netflix will allow both companies to continue to grow in the SVOD market and provide even greater international and domestic exposure to our content,” said César Conde, Chairman of NBCUniversal International Group and NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises.

“What is most exciting is that Netflix members will enjoy Telemundo’s latest and most anticipated series like ‘El Chema’ and ‘Sin Senos Sí Hay Paraíso’ exclusively on Netflix,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer.

The sequel to 2008 hit TV series “Sin senos No hay Paraíso,” “Sin Senos Sí Hay Paraíso,” also written by acclaimed Colombian author Gustavo Bolívar, reflects the reality of a new generation of women determined to be successful without resorting to plastic surgery or the temptation of easy money.

In“Guerra de Idolos,” music ignites action and romance in a universe of stars driven by their egos. Telemundo and Netflix inked in 2011 on more than 1,200 hours per year of Telemundo’s library, prior to Netflix’s launch in Latin America.
