Other highlights of CMD’s programming proposal for MIPTV include XRC, the new series of spectacular news clips; Corazon Esmeralda (Emerald Heart), the telenovela starring the talented and beautiful Irene Esser (Miss Venezuela Universe 2011) and Luis Geronimo Abreu; DeMente Criminal (Criminal MasterMind), the super-series based on the best-selling thriller Sangre en el Divan; Cosita Linda (Sweet Thing), an enchanting telenovela featuring Christian Meier, Ana Lorena Sanchez, Zuleyka Rivera and Pedro Moreno in the leading roles; the original English-language production of the travel/beauty series Latin Angels; and the teen series Candela, Una Chica Real, to mention a few.

Cisneros Media Distribution began the year by launching #yourstoryhere at NATPE, a campaign it will continue to accentuate throughout the year and at every market, including MIPTV, emphasising the importance of a truly great story, which is the foundation of each one of its productions.

MIPTV, which takes place from 13-16 April at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France, is the world’s most-established TV and digital content market and the biggest annual gathering of entertainment professionals, according to its organizer Reed MIDEM.  Top industry executives and creative talent from 100 countries converge to forge early-stage content development partnerships and seal international distribution deals for the year ahead.  The international market, which features some 60 keynotes speakers and conferences, is expected to attract more than 11,000 participants, 3,800 buyers and over 1,600 exhibitors from around the world.
