Endemol Shine Boomdog, Jessy Terrero ink development deal
Endemol Shine Boomdog, Endemol Shine North America’s Spanish-language production studio, has signed an overall deal with film and music video director Jessy Terrero.
Under the deal, Terrero and his production company, Cinema Giants, will develop original scripted and unscripted content with Endemol Shine Boomdog for the Latin TV marketplace.
One of the first projects in development is a 13-episode documentary series on reggaeton — a musical genre that originated in Puerto Rico.
Endemol Shine Boomdog was formed in November 2017, when Endemol Shine Latino joined forces with Mexico City-based production company Boomdog. The Spanish-language division develops and produces original content for the U.S. Hispanic and Mexican TV markets.
