Pantaya Acquires Ana from Viacom International Studios


The Viacom International Studios (VIS) comedy Ana, starring Ana de la Reguera, has been picked up by the Spanish-language streaming service Pantaya for the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

The series, which was also created, written and produced by the Mexican actress, tells the story of the daughter of a Mexican beauty queen who tries to attain fame as an actress in Hollywood.

“This acquisition completes the first cycle of content distribution for VIS in the Americas,” said Guillermo Borensztein, the VP of content sales and co-productions at VIS. “Following our deals with Amazon and Comedy Central Latin America for the series, we are happy to reach the U.S. Hispanic market by way of this agreement. Working with great partners like Pantaya not only expands our reach but also reinforces our position as industry leaders in the development, production and distribution of premium content.”

“We are a big fan of Ana de la Reguera, her unique creative voice and her incredible work,” said Mario Almeida, VP of programming, development and acquisitions at Pantaya, who negotiated the deal for the platform. “This series is a perfect addition to our lineup of bold and exciting premium content featuring A-list talent.”
