Hulu strikes extended deal with Telemundo

Hulu has inked a further deal with NBCUniversal’s Telemundo to provide more Spanish-language titles for the platform.

The deal, which was announced at Telemundo’s Upfronts last night, will see Hulu add 28 Spanish-language series to its catalogue.

Shows include El Señor de los Cielos, Señora Acero, Alguien Te Mira, La Casa de al Lado, Perro Amor, The Riveras and I Love Jenni. 

The move sees Hulu contend with Netflix, which has recently invested in a range of Spanish-language titles including Las Chicas del Cable and Elite.

Telemundo titles already on Hulu include La PatronaDuenos del ParaisoSenora Acero and The Riveras.

Telemundo also announced partnership with E! to develop a weekly bilingual entertainment show called The Mix to US audiences. It is due to launch in October this year.

Furthermore, Telemundo is due to create a bilingual series called Fuerza, which tells the stories of multicultural women leading up to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2019.
