TelevisaUnivision announced two new deals in Portugal for ViX Original series. The deals include the acquisition of "Travesuras De La Niña Mala" and "María Félix" by RTP, the public service broadcasting organization, and "Marea Alta," acquired by SIC, a Portuguese television network and media company, which runs several television channels. 
"Travesuras De La Niña Mala" is a romantic series based on the acclaimed novel by Mario Vargas Llosa, which premiered exclusively on ViX with new weekly episodes in 2022. The series tells the epic love story between a nonconformist and adventurous young woman and Ricardo, a man trapped in a predictable routine whom she calls a “good boy.” Thanks to the “bad girl,” he slowly learns to get out of his comfort zone. These two characters’ lives will intertwine over forty years through reunions across Lima, Paris, Madrid, Tokyo, London, and more. The “bad girl” invites us to challenge our life on autopilot, transform ourselves, take more risks to feel alive and seek happiness through excitement. A premise that questions what life is without those exciting moments from the perspective of a character that lives life feeling immortal. The series’ cast include Macarena Achaga and Juan Pablo Di Pace, who stars in the original production filmed in Paris, London and Mexico City.
"Marea Alta" is the first ViX Original young adult thriller, produced, written, and directed by a team of award-winning creators, including Ariel Award-winning Spanish screenwriter Antón Goenechea, Spanish Goya Award-winning director Roger Gual; and renowned directors Gabriel Mariño and Michelle Garza. The cast features Cassandra Ciangherotti, Raúl Méndez, Antonio López, Susana Zabaleta, Fermín Martínez and Gustavo Sánchez Parra. This young adult thriller tells the story of the disappearance of Mia, a young cyber activist dedicated to denouncing the injustices around her and will shake the uneventful city of Ensenada to its foundation. Overseeing the case is a new detective who suspects that any of the people surrounding Mia might have had motives to get rid of her. Meanwhile, Pau, Mia’s best friend, will dive into the deepest sewers of the city along with Greg, David, Beto, and Cruz to find answers about her friend’s disappearance. 
"Maria Félix" is the authorized biographical series about María Félix, that follows the journey of one of the icons of Mexican cinema, whose influence is still felt across generations of women. Twenty years after her death, "Maria Félix" is the first series to portray the legendary actress and was produced by a team comprised mostly of women: produced by Carmen Armendáriz, directed by Mafer Suárez and written by Larissa Andrade, Alejandro Gerber, Tania Tinajero and Gabriela Rodríguez.
