HBO Max Scores BBC Studios Titles for LatAm


BBC Studios has licensed more than 100 hours of scripted, factual and children’s content to WarnerMedia for HBO Max in Latin America.

On the drama front, the deal includes The Pursuit of Love, the adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s novel starring Lily James, Emily Beecham and Dominic West; as well as Smother, Wakefield and Time. HBO Max also opted for the new comedy The Outlaws.

On the factual end, HBO Max’s LatAm customers will be able to access The Trump Show and Greta Thunburg: A Year to Change the World. Preschool audiences will be able to view the International Emmy Award-winning Hey Duggee.

Dina Vangelisti, executive VP of content sales at BBC Studios—Americas, noted, “Latin America is a growing, vibrant, diverse community, and it was crucial to us to find the best-in-class home for our content in the market. Expanding our relationship with WarnerMedia and HBO Max, we can reach Latin American fans who are eager and excited for new British programming and compelling storytelling.”

“This agreement reinforces our commitment in offering the most diverse, top quality content from around the world to our audiences in Latin America,” said Andres Mendoza, head of content acquisition and negotiations at WarnerMedia Latin America.
