From a new alliance between Chilean network Mega and Esperanza Garay comes Mega Global Entertainment (MGE), a new distributor which will commercialize all fiction titles and entertainment formats from the Chilean network.
Garay, who'll lead the new company as CEO, is beginning a new stage in her career after 18 years at Telemundo Internacional, company which distributed Mega's catalog from 2015 to 2017.
"We trust Esperanza Garay and her team's vast expertise to lead Mega Global Entertainment to a place of ultimate prestige," said Patricio Hernández, executive director of Mega Holding.
And added: "This step is key for Mega's international predictions. Our content and productions must be sold across all five continents and be present on every platform available."
Esperanza Garay added: "I am extremely proud to be part of Mega's team and to start a project of this nature, through which we plan to bring Mega TV to the next level in its international projection".
MGE will begin its operations at the LA Screenings (Suite 616), where it will arrive with a catalog of proven Mega hits, including telenovelas like Sres. Papis, Pituca sin lucas, Papá a la deriva and Perdona nuestros pecados; and realities like Amor a prueba, ¿Volverías con tu ex? and Doble tentación, among others.
In addition to Mega's catalog, MGE will also offer the entire content slate by Zona A, company based in Bogota which represents writers from several countries and offers a diverse array of movies, series, miniseries and telenovelas.
Esperanza Garay began her career in 1990 as a founding partner for Zebracom Internacional, a content distributor for film, video, TV and cable.
After that and until last month, she worked as SVP of International Sales and Acquisitions for Telemundo Internacional, managing the Latin American region and playing a key role in building and strengthening the company's relationships with major international clients.
Mega is the highest-rated broadcast TV network in Chile since 2014. It belongs to Bethia group, which also owns other companies like Falabella, Latam Airlines Group, Colmena Salud, Aguas Andinas and Ancali, among others.
In May of 2016, Discovery Communications acquired 27.5% of the network's stock as part of a major deal to boost its internationalization.
