Escapade Media has secured select rights for the lifestyle culinary travelogue series The Spice Trails: Latin America, a co-production between Zee Plus and TelevisaUnivision.

The 12-part series travels through Mexico, Panama, Guatemala, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina. Escapade will rep the series in the U.K., Ireland, France and French-speaking territories, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Island countries.

Sunita Uchil, chief business officer at Zee Plus, said, “I am confident that the series will capture the imagination of audiences around the world, allowing them to vicariously travel and experience these exotic lands. Our mission at ZEE is to produce quality shows like this that have a universal appeal. We are so glad to partner with Escapade Media to promote and distribute our series.”

Carlos Murguia, executive producer at TelevisaUnivision, added, “We are extremely excited with the way The Spice Trails: Latin America has turned out, as the series beautifully captures the essence of Latin America from another very different angle: spices and their relevance in food, culture and so much more.”

Eduardo Murguia, executive producer at TelevisaUnivision, commented, “We are confident that the series will be delivered to its audience worldwide with the utmost quality and living up to the expectations we all have on the series as a production team.”
