HBO Max Sets LatAm Originals Slate


HBO Max plans to deliver more than 100 local original productions in Latin America over the next two years, with 33 already in production.

The platform is gearing up to arrive in 39 territories across Latin America and the Caribbean this June.

The lineup will include the Mexican action-comedy Búnker and family drama Amarres and the Argentine youth and musical drama Días de Gallos. On the sports doc front, there’s Bilardo, El Doctor del Fútbol from Argentina. HBO Max will also deliver a stop-motion horror anthology for kids from Mexico’s Cinema Fantasma called Frankelda’s Book of Spooks.

“HBO Max is a new platform that is committed to telling the best stories that generate experiences and emotions in our fans across Latin America,” said Tomás Yankelevich, chief content officer at WarnerMedia Latin America. “Currently, we are working on productions that cover a wide variety of different genres and formats, with all kinds of local stories that are relevant to our consumers, reinforcing our commitment to local communities with our great Latin American talent and most certainly with our audience. And this is only the beginning.”
