Federation Kids & Family is pleased to announce a major deal with industry giant, Universal Music France for its premium teen series LOVE, DIVINA (60 x 45 min). A premium international co-production with Televisa and Pol-ka Producciones starring the hugely successful TV and pop star, Laura Esquivel, LOVE, DIVINA will be represented at BLE by CPLG (Stand No. C30).

Universal Music will market LOVE, DIVINA under its MCA label – THE market specialist in teen and telenovela audiences. Other brands Universal Music have represented to multi-platinum, record-breaking success include VIOLETTA, SOY LUNA and the latest phenomena in the genre, CHICA VAMPIRO.

The agreement sees LOVE, DIVINA represented across all key platforms in France with the leading players in each industry:  broadcasting rights are held by top channel France Télévisions; global player CPLG represent the licensing rights; and now Universal Music’s MCA label is on board to develop the crucial, central element of music in the series.

Romain Delnaud, Managing Director, MCA France commented, “We are really looking forward to work with Federation, France Télévisions and CPLG, such dynamic partners that are 100% behind LOVE, DIVINA, and totally committed to making this brand a success. This exciting synergy – together with the popular, record-selling star of the show Laura Esquivel, we are sure to create another pop teen phenomena in France, and the rest of Europe.”

LOVE, DIVINA is an epic daily half-hour teen series co-produced by Televisa, Pol-ka Producciones and Federation Kids & Family. The lead role of Divina is played by established teen pop icon Laura Esquivel, who came to television and recording fame in another massive Televisa hit, PATITO FEO.  Broadcast in over 40 countries across the world, PATITO FEO became a ratings, licensing and music sensation, leading to 5 Platinum and 5 Gold albums.

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 is being broadcast across Latin America and Europe, including the key territories of Italy (Super!) and France (France Télévisions).
