Telemundo Global Studios Opens Mexico City Production Unit


NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises has extended its production footprint with the opening of a new production unit in Mexico City, operating as Telemundo Global Studios Mexico.

The new production arm will increase the company’s on-the-ground production capabilities of scripted and unscripted content. The new Mexico-based production unit is currently in preproduction of its first project for the network, the eighth season of El Senor de los Cielos.

“Our new Mexico team solidifies Telemundo’s presence across the Americas, building on our stature as the largest producer of Spanish-language scripted content in the U.S.,” said Karen Barroeta, executive VP of production and development for Telemundo Global Studios. “This new production arm will leverage our extensive production experience in Mexico together with the unparalleled know-how and robust infrastructure only NBCUniversal and Telemundo Global Studios can provide. Telemundo Global Studios Mexico will be a game-changer for our industry as we continue to raise the bar with the best and most relevant Spanish-language stories delivered with the highest production quality.”
