NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises is adding new shows at Peacock — under its Tplus content brand.
They include Madres. Amor y Vida, La Verdad, and Los Relojes de Diablo.
The three scripted shows join Tplus’ slate through a distribution agreement with Mediterráneo Mediaset España Group and add to the growing list of titles under the Tplus brand.
Importantly, the agreement represents a new partnership, and the first commercial agreement between the two companies to date.
Tplus’ initial programming slate will launch on Peacock’s premium tier later this year. Last month, Tplus previewed a number of scripted and unscripted programs coming to Peacock .
“With so many Tplus titles in development, we’re excited to announce even more shows coming to Peacock today,” said Romina Rosado, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Hispanic Streaming for NBC Universal Telemundo Enterprises. “Tplus is about cultivating an underserved audience of U.S. Latinos and recognizing the cultural fluidity of global Hispanic audiences today.”
Mediterráneo Mediaset España Group is the distribution sale and production arm of Mediaset España, Spain’s largest media company and owner of the free-to-air TV channel Telecinco.
The new titles added to Tplus content slate are described as follows:
- In Madres. Amor y vida, the life and death reality of a hospital maternity ward is only the beginning of this powerful new dramatic series following the relationships and conflicts of a group of women whose children are receiving treatment. An unflinching chronicle of motherhood, the women all have much in common: their lives have been upended to focus on the recovery of their children and they have established a special bond of camaraderie in the face of uncertainty.
- La Verdad explores the psychology of a family pushed to the limit. Eight years after her mysterious disappearance, 17-year-old Paula García returns to her family fold, sparking further intrigue about what happened to her. La Verdad tells the love story between a policeman and the mysterious young woman while, in parallel, criminal and journalistic investigations unfold to uncover the truth behind the mysterious García case.
- In today’s complex world of crime and punishment, choosing the right side may not always be the best idea. In the series Los Relojes del Diablo, marine mechanic Gianfranco Franciosi, is enlisted by local police to help infiltrate an international drug trafficking ring, but soon finds the noble act proves to only disrupt and endanger his life. Inspired by a true story and shot across Italy, Spain and Belgium, the series recreates the dangerous odyssey lived by the protagonist.
