Telefonica announced as part of MIPTV, the world's largest international event in the development and distribution of television content, the production of original fiction series in Latin America.

Pre-production of the first three series has already begun in Colombia and Peru and the first releases will be taking place beginning the second half of 2019 on Telefónica's different video platforms.

Thus, the company reaffirms its commitment to become the leading producer of Spanish-language fiction content in the world, which began in early 2017 in Spain through Movistar+. Since then, 19 original series have been produced which have been exclusively released for Telefónica customers in the markets where Telefónica operates, and in another fifty countries around the world through international distribution agreements.

The content, and especially the original fiction content, has become fundamental in making Telefónica video services stand apart. This is an offer that, through the excellent connectivity of its fixed and mobile networks and available over its video platforms, has the best content and provides the best user experience. All in all, the company has nearly 9 million pay-TV all over the world.

Paula Figueroa, Director of Telefonica Video Unit
Content is what makes our offer stand apart from the rest, and we have transformed our video platform into an aggregator where our customers can access the best content, our own and others, from one place.

Joanna Lomdardi, Peruvian Director and Producer, Director of Fiction for Telefonica in Latin America
We are very excited about the projects that we are developing. We seek to reach the Latin American viewer with stories that hit close to home, that move us, and that we can feel identified with.
