A+E Networks has sold a raft of its TV movies, including Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy, starring Hayden Panettiere, to Hispanic broadcasters in the U.S.

Univision Puerto Rico snapped up Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy, featuring Panettiere and Marcia Gay Harden; Big Driver, starring Maria Bello; Fatal Honeymoon; The Christmas Consultant (David Hasselhoff, Caroline Rhea); Liz & Dick (Lindsay Lohan); and Finding Mrs. Claus, starring Mira Sorvino. Other TV movies included in the deal are Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret, Return to Zero, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever and Murder in Mexico: The Bruce Beresford-Redman Story.

Meanwhile, Telemundo licensed The Rise and Fall of El Chapo. The two-hour documentary special offers an unprecedented look at the drug lord and the impact of his international cartel.

“We are thrilled to announce these latest programming sales, negotiated by Helen Jurado, who leads our sales efforts within the U.S. Hispanic and Latin American markets,” said Sean Cohan, the president of international and digital media at A+E Networks. “As the world’s most prolific producer of movies for TV, A+E Networks delivers titles about compelling and contemporary issues that resonate with viewers across the globe and we look forward to similar success throughout the U.S. with such leading broadcasters as Univision and Telemundo.”
