VIS in First-Look Deal with Luis Gerardo Méndez’s Cine Vaquero


ViacomCBS International Studios (VIS) has entered into a first-look deal with Mexican actor Luis Gerardo Méndez’s production company, Cine Vaquero.

“At VIS, we pride ourselves in partnering with the best talent and creatives to secure first-look deals that ensure we get the best global content,” said JC Acosta, president of ViacomCBS International Studios & Networks Americas. “Working with Luis Gerardo Méndez in Los Enviados for Paramount+ has been an amazing experience, and we are excited to partner with his production company, Cine Vaquero, to produce one-of-a-kind stories and content.”

“We are incredibly excited to partner with VIS,” said Méndez. “We’ve been working hard the past two years to find the right stories to create the kind of content in our language that we would like to see on TV.”
