Viacom International Studios (VIS) Americas has sold the formats 100 Días Para Enamorarse (100 Days to Fall in Love) and Historia de un Clan (History of a Clan) to Telemundo Global Studios.

100 Días Para Enamorarse, a Telefe and Underground co-production, tells the story of two couples who agree to separate for 100 days to date other people, and follows the entanglements, encounters, disagreements, infidelities and reconciliations that ensue. The critically-acclaimed Historia de un Clan, also produced by Underground, is based on the real story of a family known as “El Clan Puccio,” who carried out a kidnapping for ransom and murder during the 1980s. The deal for the series marks the first time that VIS formats are being adapted for the U.S. Hispanic market.

Pierluigi Gazzolo, president of Viacom International Media Networks Americas, said: “Bringing 100 Días Para Enamorarse and Historia de un Clan to the U.S. Hispanic market through our agreement with Telemundo is an important milestone for VIS Americas. Our VIS team are incredible storytellers, and the content that we create clearly resonates both in its market of origin as well as around the world. 100 Días Para Enamorarse and Historia de un Clan are two of our most successful series, and now an entirely new audience in the United States will have the opportunity to enjoy them.”

Marcos Santana, president of Telemundo Global Studios, added: “We are very excited to adapt these two large formats created by Underground and Viacom.”
