Venevision International, the global distributor of entertainment content with more than 35 years in the industry, presents its diverse programming proposal for MIPTV 2013, headlined by the action tele-series “Los Secretos de Lucia” [Lucia’s Secrets], starring Iran Castillo, Juan Pablo Raba, Lucia Reina and Miguel Gaitan, and shot in HD by Venevision at multiple locations throughout Caracas, Venezuela and Miami, Florida.
“NATPE was an encouraging indicator of the positive disposition that prevails among our Latin American customers in general, and everything seems to indicate that, although the European region faces a rather complex economical state of affairs, there is a clear and concise belief that there’s a sound and solid future ahead, and we are confident that this attitude will be reflected in sales of our broad international catalogue,” stated Cesar Diaz, Vice President of Sales of Venevision International, who will be attending MIPTV accompanied by the company’s commercialization team, comprised of Manuel Perez, Vice President & CFO; Miguel Somoza, Regional Sales Director; Daniel Rodriguez, Sales Director for Latin America; Cristobal Ponte, Exclusive Independent Representative for Europe, Africa & Middle East; and Juan Julio Baena, President of Vision Europa, Exclusive Independent Representative for Spain.
MIPTV, which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary, takes place from the 8th through the 11th of April at the Palais des Festivals in the majestic city of Cannes, France. Venevision International will be located at Stand 14.02. Among the more than 11,000 participants, the international market is expected to attract in excess of 1,600 exhibitors, 1,200 production companies and 4,000 buyers representing more than 100 countries from around the world.
“Los Secretos de Lucia” [Lucia’s Secrets] (75×45’/Teleserie/HD) portrays the story of a woman, affected by amnesia, who struggles with an unknown past and uncertain future as she navigates through life running from an unknown threat. She battles with flashes of whom she was – a ruthless arms dealer and killer – and who she wants to be. Struck by love, Lucia must first bury her horrid past before it destroys her promising future. Produced by Venevision in collaboration with the U.S.-based Univision Studios and the Colombian company BE-TV, the passionate love story is encompassed by striking action sequences, pursuits and shocking scenes at stunning locations.
