HBO Max, new WarnerMedia’s SVOD OTT about to launch in Latin America, has recently announced that it will include the Chilean series ‘La Jauria’ as part of its catalog in the US. The series is part of a plan announced earlier this year by Amazon Prime Video to produce original series in Argentina, Chile and Colombia. Its premiere on HBO Max is scheduled for next December 16th.
The Chilean premium series was directed by Lucia Puenzo and is a production made by Fabula and Fremantle, together with the Argentine company Kapow, in partnership with TVN and the National Television Council of Chile (CNTV), and premiered in July on Amazon Prime Video in Latin America and Spain, and on Chilean FTA TV, through TVN. Currently, the filming of the second season of ‘La Jauria’ is in process.
The agreement with HBO Max was reached by Sheila Aguirre, EVP of Content Distribution and Format Sales for Latin America and International at Fremantle. ‘We are very proud to partner with HBO Max for ‘La Jauria’. It is a compelling and timely drama that addresses important current affairs related to the epidemic of violence against women. We are confident that HBO’s audience will be moved by the story and the powerful performances of an exceptional cast’, Aguirre reported.
According to specialized websites, Fremantle plans sales for the series in 73 territories around the world. Some of the screens that will broadcast it are SBS (Australia), ARTE (France, Germany, Switzerland and German-speaking Austria), COSMOTE TV (Greece), Manoto TV (MENA), CANAL + Poland (Poland), VIASAT (Russia) , Movie Generation TV (Croatia), BluTV (Turkey) and Mola TV (Indonesia).
