The new arm operates under the umbrella of Miami-based Telemundo Global Studios and will increase the company’s production capabilities covering scripted and unscripted content in Mexico.

The division aims “to meet the growing demand for Spanish-language programming in the US and around the world,” said the company.

It is currently in pre-production on its first project for the Telemundo 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 US,” 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.”
