MIAMI – Mediaset Distribution is set for a new partnership with Mega Global Entertainment (MGE), an independent distributor of series, telenovelas, formats and original productions from Chile and Colombia.
For the first time, Mediaset will distribute MGE catalogue, and specifically pitch 3 telenovelas and 1 reality show.
The titles are Hidden Truths (Verdades Ocultas) a successful telenovela of 220 episodes across two seasons in which Laura, a poor mother of 2 little girls is forced to sell her youngest daughter to a rich restaurant chain owner. She then later faces a new opportunity to have her separated daughter back when the man decides to give the restaurant to his now daughter, under a new name, as a gift. The two unaware girls will confront each other as they fall in love with the same man.
The other telenovela is Amanda, with 170 episodes. It is a story of revenge and love, as a 14-year-old girl who was raped seeks justice. The last telenovela is Forgive Our Sins (Perdona nuestros pecados), a series of 232 episodes currently airing in Chile. It focuses on the story between the new charming priest in town and the daughter of one of the richest men of the parish.
The list also includes the reality show Would You Take Your Ex Back? (¿Volverías con tu ex?), in which 12 former couples spend a period of time together on an isolated location where they can re-examine old relationships and get a second chance.
In addition to finished products, Mediaset also distributes scripts and offers the possibility to create strategic alliances for the creation of new products.
Partly-owned by Chile’s most watched network Mega, MGE holds rights for the international distribution of Mega’s successful fiction content. Their content portfolio is complemented with the innovative and creative ideas of Zona A Entertainment, a Colombian company which represents editorial products for audiovisual purposes, as well as the Mediaset catalogue.
The new deal between Mediaset Distribution and MGE will allow the companies to distribute their own catalogues in Latam, CEE Regions and the rest of Europe.
