France Télévisions Acquires Premium Teen Series LOVE, DIVINA

16 Feb - 2017

Key European Platforms Secured in France and Italy’s Super!

Televisa, Pol-ka Producciones and Federation Kids & Family are pleased to announce the sale of LOVE, DIVINA (60 x 45 min) to leading French broadcaster France Télévisions. Coming on the heels of its acquisition by Super! in Italy, the agreement sees the premium daily drama series secured in two of the most important markets in Europe.

Co-produced by Televisa, Pol-ka Producciones and Federation Kids & Family LOVE, DIVINA features TV and pop star Laura Esquivel – as well as a steady stream of every teen’s daily essentials: comedy, drama and music! Laura Esquivel came to fame in PATITO FEO, a Televisa co-production broadcast in more than 40 countries, which became a ratings, licensing and music sensation, with an amazing 5 Platinum and 5 Gold albums.

Tiphaine de Raguenel, France Télévisions’ Executive Director and Director of Youth Programming, France 4, commented, “We are delighted to welcome LOVE, DIVINA exclusively on France 4, France Télévisions’ family channel. LOVE, DIVINA, and her friends, offer our viewers a positive portrait of a modern, supportive and united family. These values to which France Télévisions aspires contribute to an aspirational story that will appeal resonate with kids and parents alike.

Our partnership with France Télévisions is a cornerstone of our pan-European strategy, securing key channels one by one, while filling a needed gap in the market,” commented David Michel, Managing Director of Federation Kids & Family. “LOVE DIVINA has a unique creative angle in that it is a drama that works for both tweens/teens and parents audiences, which is a hard genre to find right now.

DIVINA tells the story of a kind and conscientious teenager who grew up without a family. With a deep understanding of life on the streets, Divina takes a group of homeless kids under her wing. The mysterious Irene, who turns out to be her long-lost grandmother eager to be close to Divina and atone for past mistakes, takes them all under her Mansion’s roof, saving them from social services. Divina, who secretly dreams of becoming a pop star, lives with her friends, side by side with Irene’s privileged family – including Felipe, the love of Divina’s life – forging fast new friendships alongside bitter new rivalries…

LOVE, DIVINA launched on eltrece (Argentina) and Televisa’s digital platform BLIM (Mexico and LatAm) in the first quarter of 2017, with broadcast on Super! (Italy) and all Televisa’s other platforms including Free TV (Mexico) to follow. European rights are managed by Federation and Televisa, and ROW by Televisa.
