Pantaya has signed a multiyear overall deal with the illustrious Mexican actress Maite Perroni.“It’s such an honor to formalize this partnership with Pantaya and Pantelion Films, after collaborating for so many years on great projects, including the opportunity to be the Pantaya spokesperson at the beginning of their launch eight years ago,” Perroni said. “I am excited and grateful to get to work with great minds to create powerful and entertaining premium quality content for the Hispanic audience in the U.S. and around the world.” 

As part of the agreement, which is Pantaya’s first-ever overall deal of its kind, Perroni 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. This overall deal builds on an existing relationship between the widely recognized Latin superstar and the leading Spanish-language streaming platform following Perroni’s current starring role in Pantaya’s original series "El Juego de las Llaves" which is exclusively available on the platform.

Perroni won worldwide recognition after starring in the telenovela Rebelde in 2004 and became part of the music phenomenon RBD.  Since then, she has become one of the most important Latin stars at an international level as an award-winning actress, singer, host, influencer, and businesswoman. Represented by Carolina Palomo and Punto y Aparte Agency,  she also serves as the star of the animated film "Un Rescate de Huevitos."  “Maite is an extraordinary talent, and we are delighted to continue our successful relationship with her. This new partnership highlights the immense growth we’ve had at Pantaya as we expand our slate of content in tandem with leading talent and producers. We can’t wait to collaborate with Maite and share our new programming with our subscribers," Presburger said.

 Ranking #1 among Spanish SVOD services for both iOS and Android users, the service is compatible with most major devices and platforms including mobile, tablet and web, connected devices and smart TVs, as well as wholesale distributors.  Last month, along with Pantelion, the company signed significant multiyear direct-to-platform deals with prominent production companies El Estudio, The Lift, and Traziende Films. Under the terms of the deal, each company will produce direct-to-platform Spanish-language films to stream in the US exclusively on Pantaya. Additionally, Pantaya recently signed a co-development and production deal with Elefantec Global to create feature films, original series, and other entertainment offerings for Hispanic/Latino audiences as well as a deal with Fremantle and Fabula to develop a slate of eight new series.
