After dismantling its fiction unit and amidst a strong restructure process, the Chilean network will outsource the production of television series, thus signing a deal with Pablo Ávila's production company, which up until now, had strong ties to Mega. The new alliance with AGTV establishes the production of at least 10 fiction products for the primetime 8pm to 10:30pm timeslots.

According to Deadline, Damián Alcázar (Narcos) and Tamara Vallarta (Paquita la del Barrio) will spearhead the cast of Tijuana, the much anticipated premium drama from both companies.
