ViX, TelevisaUnivision’s Spanish-language streaming service, has teamed up with Spain’s Secuoya Studios and Cuban-American actor William Levy to create two new projects.

Levy will star and executive produce the series Arcadia and the film Bajo Un Volcán (Under a Volcano), both working titles, which will begin production this year and will be released exclusively on ViX.

This is a new step in a collaboration that began with the series Montecristo, an adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ literary classic The Count of Monte Cristo produced by Secuoya Studios for ViX and with Levy as the protagonist.

“Following the success of Montecristo in 2023, we are excited to renew our collaboration with Secuoya Studios and Levy, bringing our growing audience two compelling productions that will enhance our content offering with powerful narratives and visuals that will resonate with our subscribers,” said Augusto Rovegno, senior VP of content at ViX for TelevisaUnivision.

Arcadia is a suspense series that tells the story of Pablo, who flees from a frustrated love and a violent past and, with a false identity, starts a new life with his son in Arcadia, an idyllic town in the Canary Islands.

Bajo Un Volcán is about a forbidden and ill-timed love that arises during a natural disaster. It will be the actor’s first feature film in Spain.

Sergio Pizzolante, commercial and distribution president of Secuoya Studios, referred to the projects as “two of Secuoya Studios’ most ambitious projects for 2024.”

Elsewhere, Mexican content creator and producer Juanpa Zurita and his company Arco Entertainment Media have closed a first-look deal with ViX.

The deal, which was announced today at TelevisaUnivision’s 2024/25 Upfront presentation, gives ViX exclusive access to Arco Entertainment’s Spanish-language film and series projects.

With more than 90 million followers on social networks, Zurita is one of the most successful content creators in the Spanish-speaking world. As an actor, he has starred in the ViX original film ¿Quieres ser mi Hijo? released in 2023.

As co-founder and executive creative director of Arco Entertainment, he will create Spanish-language content and curate stories for ViX, working closely with his partner Brenda Tubilla, who will serve as executive producer on those projects.
