Amazon Prime Video takes rights for two new Viacom series in LatAm

Amazon has agreed a deal with Viacom International Studios (VIS) that establishes Prime Video as the exclusive streaming provider for two new VIS productions in Latin America.

Comedy series Homens? and drama series Dani Who?  join Prime Video’s growing slate of exclusive streaming titles in Latin America, which also include FalcoThe Good Doctor and Mr. Robot.

Homens? was created by Porta dos Fundo, a Brazilian comedy provider that is part of the VIS portfolio. It is due to premiere in 2019. Dani Who? was created and produced by VIS and is scheduled to go into production in 2019.

“Amazon is committed to delivering great content to our Prime Video members across Latin America and this new relationship with the VIS team will bring two new and compelling stories to our service for audiences to enjoy,” said Pablo Iacoviello, head of content for Latin America, Amazon Prime Video.

“We remain focused on adding locally relevant content, so we’re especially thrilled about adding Homens? to our catalogue of titles as an exclusive Brazilian series.”

Viacom International Media Networks Americas president, Pierluigi Gazzolo, said: “We are very happy to be working with Amazon on this important deal for our Viacom International Studios.

“Since presenting our new slate of programming earlier this year, we have worked closely with the team at Amazon to create a tailor-made package to fulfil their content needs for Latin America and to extend the reach of our product throughout the region.”

The two series will be available to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video online and via mobile devices, smart TVs and connected devices like Fire TV. Amazon offers other local original series in Latin America such as Diablo Guardian and Un Extraño Enemigo, as well as the upcoming LOL: Last One Laughing.
