MIPTV Spotlight: TelevisaUnivision


Montecristo, based on Alexandre Dumas’s classic The Count of Monte Cristo, leads TelevisaUnivision’s slate.

It stars William Levy as an enigmatic figure who bursts into the public eye and raises concerns among the elite due to the unknown origin of his fortune.

The six-part series Volver a caer, a contemporary retelling of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, sees Kate del Castillo play a gold medal-winning Olympic diver and Mexican national hero who falls in love with a young musician.

The telenovelas El amor invencible and Pienso en ti are on offer as well. All four series made their debuts earlier this year. “Between our original series on ViX and Televisa’s library of telenovelas, we’re able to work with a wide spectrum of clients,” says Guillermo Borensztein, senior VP of international content licensing.

“Both the quality and volume of our premium original content are unmatched,” says Borensztein.
