“We are glad to offer to our audience a product like Love, Divina and we are also happy to work with partners like Pol-ka Producciones, Federation Kids & Family and Televisa, who have very good expertise in daily, long-running live-action series for teens and tweens,” said Massimo Bruno, the head of TV channels at De Agostini Editore. “At Super!, we are glad to work with a known teen idol like Laura Esquivel; she is a very talented girl, perfect for our channel! Friendship, fun, music, and family are some of the values and themes that our audience will find in this brand news series that we will broadcast on Super! in 2017.”

Love, Divina is a natural sequel to Patito Feo, which De Agostini Editore helped make such a huge success in Southern Europe; we are delighted to be working with them again,” commented David Michel, the managing director of Federation Kids & Family. “Super! is the perfect place to connect Love, Divina with its target music-loving audience—including new and established Esquivel fans—and create an exciting new teen brand.”
