ViacomCBS International Studio’s hit series “Pequeñas Victorias” was honored with a GLAAD Media Awards nomination in the “Outstanding Spanish-Language Scripted Television Series” category. The series is produced by VIS in association with Oficina Burman (The Mediapro Studio) and premiered in the United States and Latin America in August 2021 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video and on free to air channel Telefe.
“We want our content to be a benchmark of diversity, reflecting different realities and helping to foster an inclusive environment where the multitude of voices in our audiences are heard. Content is a powerful tool that helps usher in a more diverse and inclusive world,” said Federico Cuervo, SVP of VIS Americas.
“‘Pequeñas Victorias’ reflects emotional realities, where the characters, diverse in their universes, go through conflicts that transcend a reductionist view of the genre. The identity crisis experienced by the members of this diverse family exceeds the limits of definitions and prejudices,” commented Daniel Burman, CEO of Oficina Burman (The Mediapro Studio).
Based on an original idea by Erika Halvorsen and Daniel Burman, “Pequeñas Victorias” is directed by Juan Taratuto, and written by Juan Taratuto, Mara Pescio, and Matías Scartascini. The second season stars Julieta Díaz, Natalie Pérez, Mariana Genesio, along with Facundo Arana, Alan Sabbagh Juan Leyrado, Miriam Odorico, Lola Loyacono, and Joaquin Rescigno.
The story picks up with Victoria (Lola Loyacono) starting school and the mothers dealing with personal situations and conflicts they avoided during the first few years of the child’s life. Jazmín (Julieta Díaz), Bárbara (Natalie Pérez), and Emma (Mariana Genesio) will now have to go through a voyage of self-discovery and reconcile their identities with their roles as Victoria's mothers.
This is the second nomination that the ViacomCBS studio has obtained in the renowned and prestigious international GLAAD awards, which annually recognizes media for “fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQIA+ people and issues” in more than 30 areas around the world.
