Somos to Represent Shows by MK-Distribution in the Region

Francisco Villanueva, COO at Somos Distribution talked to ttvnews during Miptv about how his company has just closed a distribution agreement with MK-Distribution to represent its shows in Latin America.

Pioneers in bringing Turkish content to Latin America and driving forces behind content from “exotic” countries like India and Poland, Somos Distribution is now adding Ukrainian and Easter European shows to its catalogue thanks to a deal with MK Distribution.

The deal was announced to ttvnews during Miptv by Francisco Villanueva, COO at Somos Distribution, who explained that the first step was to select eight shows from MK’s catalogue to commercialize in Latin America.

“We’ve made a deal with MK-Distribution. We’re representing a slate of their shows and telenovelas with excellent scripts and an extraordinary production,” he mentioned to ttvnews.

“We need to see how our market responds to them, but the quality is unparalleled and MK has a strong presence in many territories like the Ukraine and Russia, and for us it’s great to partner up with someone with such a strong international presence,” he added.

Thanks to the deal, Somos is adding new shows to its catalogue and as such, will be able to offer more diverse content.

Anna Verbovskaya, Head of Sales at MK Distribution for Latin America, highlighted that the deal aims to promote the company’s growth in the region.

“We noticed that Somos was an excellent partner to sell content from less traditional countries and we’re happy to have them as allies,” she claimed.
