Cinelatino and Argos ink agreement

Cinelatino has announced it has entered into a partnership with Mexico's Argos Comunicacion to produce original television movies exclusively for Cinelatino.

Cinelatino is a popular Spanish-language movie channel in the United States. Argos Comunicacion is a successful Mexican independent production company.

Argos has a track record for producing the highest-quality feature films and television product and we are confident these movies will deliver the great quality and entertainment value that characterize our channel, Jim McNamara, president of Cinelatino, said in a statement Thursday. We are excited to be able to offer our consumers original content designed with their specific interests in mind.

The first of the two Cinelatino-commissioned movies began production this week and are expected to air this fall, the network said.
