With these partners on board, the show is going to start shooting in April, Mohler revealed. "Mexico or Puerto Rico, we are thinking about it," he said.
Along with La hacienda del Rey, Olympusat is embarked in an ambitious project of making TV series all across the globe, with productions in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
"By the end of the year, we want to be producing 20 episodes per week. And in the movies side, we want to have up to 20 or 30 movies produced per month,” he said.
In addition to all this, the company will launch its OTT service Vemox in Latin America by mid-year.
“For now, Vemox is available in the US only. We intend to launch it in Latin America with our marketing partners. We have them in 20 countries and are expecting to have more by mid-year,” he added.
