VIS, a division of ViacomCBS, announced the start of production of its dramedy, Cecilia, part of the portfolio of original content developed for the streaming platform Paramount+.
“We are excited to begin filming Cecilia, one of the first VIS originals for Paramount+ and the beginning of a new era for our studio,” said Federico Cuervo, SVP & Head of VIS Americas. “This story deals with some highly relatable topics that will undoubtedly capture the attention of audiences everywhere.”
