Streaming service Pantaya announced that it has signed a multiyear overall deal with the Mexican actress Fernanda Castillo. Under the terms of the agreement, Castillo will star and co-produce original series and films for the company.
Films developed as part of this deal will be produced in tandem with Pantelion Films, Pantaya’s partner company. Castillo and Pantelion previously partnered on the film “No Manches Frida,” which is one of the top grossing Spanish-language comedies, and “Ya Veremos,” which is one of the most successful films on Pantaya.
“One of the most fascinating and exciting things about my work as an actress is that it allows me to cross borders and tell stories that have an impact on the culture and identity of the viewers. I am honored to be able to create content with Pantaya for the US Hispanic community and for this to be a bridge that allows us to connect to our roots and reflect who we are. I am thrilled to be part of their mission to give Latinos the premium television content they deserve,” Castillo said.
Paul Presburger, CEO of Pantaya and Pantelion, declared: “Fernanda is an incredible talent, and her films are consistently fan favorites amongst Pantaya subscribers. We are thrilled to collaborate with her on this new slate of projects and to be continuing the aggressive growth of our talent partnerships and content offerings”.
