Paris-based Novavision has signed a distribution agreement with Venevision to bring its content to Latin American territories, U.S. Spanish-language channels, and English- and Portuguese-language channels in Africa (excluding South Africa).
For Latin America, Novavision shows will include Hilarious Home Video, Bubble Comedy Show and Extreme Sport Bloopers. Also, Venevision will set up local adaptations for popular Novavision formats, such as The Prize of Surprise and The QuizZz.
"With our ever-growing library, we had reached a point where we needed to reinforce our position in the Latin American market," said François-Xavier Poirier, the president of Novavision, in a statement. "Venevision, with whom we’ve always had a very good relationship, was the obvious choice for us. We believe their extensive experience and contacts in the industry will help us in our search for the right partners for the local production of our humorous clip shows."
The offerings are part of Venevision's slate at Miptv 2012.
