Latina actress Zoe Saldaña and Lionsgate, the independent film and television distribution company, have inked a new deal to develop further content for the Hispanic market.
According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate’s Pantelion Films studio will start rolling on both film and TV projects with Saldaña Production, a company run by Zoe and her sister Cisely.
“We look forward to a fruitful and productive relationship with Pantelion,” the Avatar star said in a statement.
Pantelion Films, the first major Latino-focused Hollywood studio, was launched in 2010 in partnership with Mexico’s Grupo Televisa. Two years later it teamed up with Televisa to create English-language TV content with Latina flair.
