Viacom International Studios announced a first-look deal with Infinity Hill to develop and produce feature films in Spanish.
Viacom International Studios (VIS) signed an exclusive deal with Infinity Hill, the production company founded by renowned movie producers Axel Kuschevatzky, Phin Glynn and Cindy Teperman, to develop and produce feature films.
The slate will focus on Spanish-Language movie production, filmed around the globe with international talent both in front and behind the camera.
“This deal empowers us to increase our development of high-quality, long-form content generating more IPs for VIS”, said Federico Cuervo, SVP, Head of Viacom International Studios. “We know the talent of Infinity Hill’s producers and what they can bring to a studio like ours in terms of high end content.”
“For a rising film company like Infinity Hill setting up a deal with such a giant as Viacom International Studios is a great opportunity and a marvelous way to create new films aimed for both local and global audiences”, added Axel Kuschevatzky, from Infinity Hill, “Spanish is the second most spoken language win the world, with 460 Million Native Speakers.
