Onza Distribution Sends Cacao to Spain


Onza Distribution has inked a deal with Mediaset España for the Portuguese telenovela Cacao to air in Spain on the Divinity channel.

In Cacao, the life of a young woman who works on a cocoa plantation changes when she discovers she is the illegitimate daughter of the plantation’s owner and therefore the rightful heir to his estate.

The telenovela debuted in Portugal on TVI in January and reported an audience share of 19.48 percent.

“This agreement shows that our telenovelas can travel everywhere, and we are sure the Spanish audience will be captivated by Cacao’s great story,” said Béatrice Nouh, head of sales at Onza Distribution.

“I’m thrilled to witness the groundbreaking expansion of Cacao into Spanish television,” commented Margarida Victória Pereira, director of acquisitions and sales of TVI. “This historic deal not only underscores the universal appeal of Portuguese storytelling but also opens new avenues for cultural exchange and collaboration in the world of television entertainment.”
