TV Azteca and Keshet International (KI) have inked a scripted deal to co-develop and produce a new original Spanish-language super series to air on TV Azteca.

The 60-episode show — subject and title TBD — will be developed under the KI banner and co-produced with TV Azteca in-house, with a view to launching in 2018. KI will distribute the series globally.

“Keshet has a reputation for producing scripted series that stand apart from the crowd,” said Joshua Mintz, deputy president at TV Azteca. “We are genuinely excited about content we are going to create together.”

The news comes during a period of growth for KI in Latin America, having launched its production company Keshet MX earlier this year. KI is also co-developing a Spanish-language super series with Telemundo for the US Hispanic audience and has a four-series output deal with Televisa in Mexico (where Loaded has been remade as MINT and Easy Money as Mita Y Mita). It has also forged non-scripted co-development deals with Telefe in Argentina and MEGA in Chile to create a new entertainment series.

“As we continue our rapid expansion in Latin America, original development is a top priority,” said Kelly Wright, VP, distribution and new business, KI. “We have a true meeting of minds with TV Azteca since it is known for producing bold, daring series that resonate with audiences across not only Mexico but much of the world — something we strive for every time.”
