TelevisaUnivision’s ViX+ and Salma Hayek Pinault’s Ventanarosa Productions Start Filming”Quiero Tu Vida” in Mexico City



MIAMI – APRIL 12, 2022TelevisaUnivision Inc., the world’s leading Spanish-language content and media company, today announced that production began in Mexico City on “Quiero Tu Vida” (I Want Your Life), an exclusive romantic fantasy feature for ViX+, the new premium Spanish-language SVOD tier that the streaming platform will launch in the second half of 2022. This is the first project under TelevisaUnivision’s recently announced first-look deal with Salma Hayek Pinault’s Ventanarosa Productions to produce Spanish-language feature films exclusively for ViX+.   “Quiero Tu Vida”is a romantic fantasy feature about Nico, a young soccer player whose promising career comes to a sudden end when he suffers a devastating injury on the field. Eight years later, Nico turns into a bitter man who keeps fantasizing about what his life could have been. When the universe magically gives him an opportunity to live the life he always dreamed of, Nico learns that fame and glory can be deceitful and sometimes happiness comes in the most unexpected ways.   Produced by Salma Hayek Pinault and José Tamez under their Ventanarosa banner along with Jorge Garcia Castro, “Quiero Tu Vida” is directed by Jorge Colón (Sin Ella and Tired of Kissing Frogs) based on a script by Tamez and Garcia Castro. The ViX+ Original Film will star Erick Elías (Tormenta en el Paraíso and El Hotel de los Secretos), Zuria Vega (Que te Perdone Dios and Mi Marido Tiene Familia), Bárbara de Regil (El Torito and Rosario Tijeras), Jesús Zavala (La Boda de Valentina and Cómplices) and Natalia Téllez (Logout and Te Acuerdas de Mí).   Soccer – or rather fútbol – is a strong component of Latin American cultures, and a passion point for the all-star cast participating in front of and behind the cameras, in the production:
“The role of a soccer player is an exciting challenge for me as it makes me step out of my comfort zone. For almost two months, I’ve been training and rehearsing with director Jorge Colón, whom I wanted to work with again, said Erick Elías, star of “Quiero Tu Vida.” “I love the story because it pushes me to transform my look several times, in addition to being a physical challenge. I’m also thrilled to work in Mexico again.” “I love soccer, and I’m excited to be part of a movie that takes place in that world. I am very excited to work again with my good friend Erick Elias and also with Jorge Colón as I made my first film with him. This story will resonate with audiences because, given the immediacy of social media, we always aspire to a different life. The grass is always greener, but this film reminds us to be grateful and value what we have,” added Zuria Vega, star of “Quiero Tu Vida.” “I love the ‘Quiero Tu Vida’ story and am obsessed with my character, Sofi del Mar. Sofi is a very self-centered woman; it’s all about her. I’m making sure that, despite her narcissism, it comes across very naturally,” said Bárbara de Regil, star of “Quiero Tu Vida.”

Watch HULU’s ‘Dear Santa, the Series’ Six-part Series Premieres



On the heels of the critically-acclaimed Christmas documentary, Dear Santa about the United States Postal Service’s venerated Operation Santa program – streaming on Hulu and included on the Entertainment WeeklyTown and CountryWomen’s Health and Men’s Health magazine lists of must-watch holiday films – Hulu will debut the new documentary series Dear Santa, The Series tonight: Sunday, December 18 at Midnight Eastern.

The six-episode series takes audiences on an inspiring holiday journey as children across America write letters to Santa and kind-hearted “elves” step up in unexpected ways to make their Christmas wishes come true.

Directed by Dana Nachman (Pick of the Litter, Batkid Begins) and produced by her company, Sweet World Films, along with Chelsea Matter, TRAVERSE32’s Brendan Gaul and Brett Henenberg, and Christopher Karpenko, the series was brought to life by the same team behind the acclaimed IFC Films documentary feature.

Nachman is a veteran documentary filmmaker and former journalist. Her films have received dozens of awards from top film festivals across the U.S. and around the world. Her television news work earned her multiple Emmy® awards, an Edward R. Murrow Award, and a regional AP award. Nachman is a member of the Directors Guild of America (DGA).

This year (2022) also marks the 110th anniversary of Operation Santa. Since 1912, thousands of children and families in need have sent letters to Santa asking for everything from toys to the most basic of necessities. And each year, Santa, through the USPS, has partnered with anonymous human “elves” to fulfill those requests by December 25th.

Dear Santa, The Series has been rolling out this month across ABC’s local stations including WABC in New York, WPVI in Philadelphia, WLS in Chicago, WTVD in Raleigh-Durham, KTRK in Houston, KABC in Los Angeles, KFSN in Fresno, KGO in San Francisco and ABC’s Localish. This is the first time the series is available to stream nationwide on Hulu.

In this new family friendly show, audiences traverse the country to meet some of Jolly Ole’ St. Nick’s most memorable letter writers, the human elves Santa tapped to make their Christmas wishes come true, and the USPS employees who annually make everything possible.

About Accused

From Emmy Award-winning producer Howard Gordon, the co-creator of landmark television, such as Homeland, and the showrunner of 24, comes Accused – a collection of 15 intense, topical and exquisitely human stories of crime and punishment. Each episode is a fast-paced provocative thriller, exploring a different crime, in a different city, with an entirely original cast. Based on the BBC’s BAFTA-winning crime anthology, Accused opens in a courtroom on the defendant, with viewers knowing nothing about their crime or how they ended up on trial. Told from the defendant’s point of view through flashbacks, the show holds a mirror up to current times with evocative and emotional stories. In the end, audiences will discover how an ordinary person gets caught up in extraordinary circumstances, and how one impulsive decision can impact the course of that life – and the lives of others — forever. Developed for American Television by Howard Gordon (Homeland24) and executive-produced by Gordon, Alex Gansa (Homeland24) and David Shore (House, The Good Doctor), Accused once again fearlessly takes on the hottest topics of our time.
