Univision to Produce Its Own U.S. Telenovelas

Enlace, Posted: Dec 11, 2009

NEW YORK -- Univision, the largest Hispanic television network in the United States, announced this week that it will open a production division in Miami to create its own telenovelas and other programs for U.S. audiences. Although rival Hispanic network Telemundo produces its own telenovelas specifically marketed to Latinos in the United States, Univision has until now aired Mexican telenovelas through the network Televisa. Based in Miami, the new division plans to film telenovelas, reality shows, dramas, entertainment specials and other formats for their channels Univision, TeleFutura and Galavision. The move comes two months after Cesar Conde took over as Univision's new president in October.

Despite the changes, Conde said Univision would maintain its relationship with Televisa and other partners in Latin America, including Colombia's RCN network, the Venezuelan Venevision and Brazil's Globo. Univision's contract for exclusive access to Televisa programming expires in 2017, but Conde expects the relationship to continue after that date. The relationship between Univision and Televisa became tense in recent years after the Mexican company filed a lawsuit against Univision for a breach of contract. Both companies reached an agreement in January, in which Televisa would receive free publicity and $25 million in compensation.

When asked about the deal announced last week between Comcast Cable and NBC, which owns Telemundo, Conde stressed that his goal is for Univision to become the largest network in the United States within five years.
