Globo Turns 40
The international
distribution division
of Brazilian network
Rede Globo -one of
the largest drama
factories in the
world- is celebrating
its 40th anniversary
from the time it sold
its telenovela ‘O BemAmado’ to Uruguay’s
Teledoce channel
in 1973. The company
continues expanding its
international business
to this day, and ttv is
taking a look back at
this past four decades.

his is a very special year for Globo and its international distribution division. This year, that project that began with the distribution of a telenovela
called ‘O Bem-Amado’ to Teledoce in Uruguay back in 1973, was the first
step in a content distribution venture that hasn’t stopped growing since,
reaching all corners of the globe, harvesting several international awards
and following down the same path as great media groups. It all started
a few months ago in January, during the opening day at the 2013 Natpe
in Miami, where Globo presented its catalog of programming for the new
year to 150 international guests at the event, while also celebrating its 40th year of presence in the global market.
“It’s a true joy for us to be able to celebrate 40 years of successful business in the international markets with all our clients who are interested in our work and invest on our productions,”
Raphael Corrêa Netto, executive director of International Business at Globo, said to ttv that day
in late January. “We are leaders in Brazil and a reference in drama production across the globe.
The trust from our viewers and partners was achieved through hard work, professionalism, investments in high quality and creativity.”
HISTORY OF SUCCESS. All things must start somewhere. For Globo, it all began with the sale
of one of its productions, ‘O Bem-Amado’ to the Teledoce network in Uruguay in 1973. And from
that moment on, both companies have worked together to this day.
After that, networks and audiences in regional countries began to enjoy the productions Globo
offered the international market, known for its profound stories, big budgets and high quality
factual content.
“During those 40 years as a company we’ve managed to accomplish a great challenge, which
is taking the Brazilian product, creativity and innovation across all borders,” Netto said at Natpe
2013. “I mean, we travel across borders in the
sense that we take Globo’s product and Brazilian culture to all continents. I think this is a
role we must be proud of and something will
surely continue to do,” he added.
versión of the hit telenovela ‘Gabriela, Cravo
e Canela’, based on Jorge Amado’s book and
starring Sônia Braga, will be distributed this
year by Globo and Warner Bros. International
Television Distribution.
History then continued to prove Globo’s products were destined to become established
worldwide. Thus in 1981 Globo won its first
International Emmy with the kids’ musical ‘Vinicius para Criança - El Arca de Noé’, based on
the work of Vinicius de Moraes and directed
by Augusto César Vannucci.
“Our telenovelas have been part of our
viewers’ lives for the past 40 years. Titles like
‘Sinhá Moça’, ‘Roque Santeiro’, ‘O Rei do Gado’
and ‘The Clone’; are sold to this day to networks on different platforms like satellite,
cable and IPTV,” Ricardo Scalamandré, director of Globo’s International Business Division,
said to ttv.
By the end of the nineties, more precisely in
1999, Globo launched its international network
Globo TV Internacional, becoming the first Brazilian network to be broadcast via satellite to
Brazilian and Portuguese-speaking audiences
overseas, with digital quality, 24 hours a day.
“Our telenovelas
have been part
of our viewers’
lives for the past
40 years.”
Guilherme Bokel, Executive Director of International
Entertainment; Ricardo Scalamandré Head of International
Business and Raphael Correa Netto,
Executive Director of International Business at Natpe 2013.
Nowadays, the network has over 620,000 subscribers worldwide, in 116 countries across the
five continents. Its programming includes live
newscasts, sports, telenovelas, miniseries, kids’
programs and variety shows.
The international awards kept on coming, and
in 2009 the company won its second International Emmy Award in the Best Telenovela
category with ‘India – A Love Story,’ by Gloria
Globo co-produced its first telenovela with its
partner network Telemundo in the US. The title was ‘The Clone’ -an adaptation of ‘The Clone’
by Gloria Pérez, originally broadcast in 2001
on Globo’s primetime in Brazil, and sold in
over 90 countries-, which aired from February
to October in the US and Mexico, reaching
high ratings.
In 2011 came another telenovela, ‘Blood Ties’,
co-produced between Globo and SIC, which
also won another International Emmy in the
Best Telenovela category. That same year, Globo won another Emmy in the Best Newscast
category for ‘Jornal Nacional’s coverage of the
invasion of the Complexo do Alemão neighborhood.
One year later in 2012, Globo won yet
another Emmy for ‘The Illusionist’, named
Best Telenovela, and another statue for ‘The
Invisible Woman’, crowned Best Comedy at
the ceremony. The company then also launched its sixth feed for Zon’s basic package in
Globo is currently developing new co-productions, including ‘Marido en Alquiler’ with
Telemundo, an adaptation of the original
Brazilian version sold as ‘Looks & Essence’ -in
production since February with no pending
release date-, in addition to other projects
with Azteca (Mexico) and Caracol Televisión
(Colombia). On top of this, ‘Gabriela’, a new
“We believe this success and recognition are
mostly due to the quality of the content we
offer. They’re original productions, always
good love stories with humor and drama. We
are very proud to be able to take these emotions to homes across the globe. I think this
comes from the passionate way we devote
ourselves to television,” he concluded.

elemundo Internacional is known for
developing high-quality telenovelas
and establishing the genre worldwide, always prioritizing good scripts
and production, finding the right
talent and using cutting-edge technology, to
create products with a life of their own. In the
following interview with ttv, Esperanza Garay,
SVP Sales and Acquisitions, Latin America at
Telemundo Internacional gives an overview
of the network’s main titles to present at the
Palais des Festivals.
How would you describe Telemundo
Internacional’s offer for MIPTV 2013?
Telemundo’s offer is extremely appealing for
our clients because it features telenovelas
that are known for their great performance, as
well as other series and formats that will surely spark their interest.
Which telenovelas will Telemundo Internacional be presenting in Cannes? We
are taking ‘Forbidden Love’ and ‘The Return’,
which is doing great in the US. ‘The Return’s
performance is groundbreaking, especially
considering it’s broadcast at 9:00 PM. In this
timeslot, it’s even been able to surpass ratings registered by ‘The Queen of the South’,
and this time frame is highly competitive.
Meanwhile, ‘Forbidden Love’ has shown increasing ratings and has a level of production that has made audiences embrace it
even more. And we’ll also show a preview of
a new major production ‘The Lord of the Skies’,
produced by Telemundo in association with
Caracol Televisión, which we expect will be
overwhelmingly successful.
How have Telemundo Internacional’s titles
performed in Latin America? One of Telemundo Internacional’s titles that truly deserves a special mention for its performance in
Latin America is ‘Tales of the Virgin of Guadalupe’, a series with stories related to the Virgin
of Guadalupe. This series is broadcast daily
on Telemundo with excellent ratings for the
US network. It’s been one of Telemundo’s top
products and now we’re taking it to other
countries in the region. We’ve tried it out in
Ecuador’s primetime on Ecuavisa, and it had
a great run. It was also broadcast at daytime
and it was also a success. ‘Tales of the Virgin
of Guadalupe’ has been distributed in several
countries throughout the region and we are
fully confident it will continue to be a success.

The Return
What details can you share about ‘The
Return’s performance in the US? ‘The Return’,
which premiered in January in the US and is
just taking its first steps in Latin America, where
it’s been sold to over 90% of the region, continues to be as successful there as it was in the
US, where it even surpassed ‘The Queen of the
South’. In this sense, ‘The Return’ has scored ratings of over 1.5 million viewers among adults
18-49, marking the seventh time it registered
ratings of over a million viewers.
In addition to telenovelas, how have Telemundo Internacional’s adaptations in Europe worked out in 2012? Of the formats we
sold in 2012, it’s worth highlighting the success of ‘Quinceañeras’, a teen game show that
appeals to both moms and daughters, both
of which are part of the competition and thus
helps engage more viewers. This format has
done great in Kazakhstan, where more than
one season has been developed.
Telemundo Internacional also represents
titles from Chile’s TVN worldwide. What
would you highlight from these Chilean
productions? At Miptv we’ll also present ‘Separados’, which is part of TVN Chile’s catalog,
as well as series ‘Tales of the Virgin of Guadalupe’, which was developed successfully in the
US and Ecuador. We also have ‘Naím Effect’, a
weekly news series hosted by Moises Naím
from Washington DC, which analyzed current
affairs and world news, produced by NTN 24.
Are you presenting any entertainment series in Cannes? We’ll present an entertainment format called ‘Letris’, a game show that’s
very innovative with elements of interactivity, and is already very popular on tablets and
smartphones. This product premiered on
April 1 on TVE in Spain, and by the time we
arrive at MIPTV, clients will be able to see the
first few episodes aired in Spain. ‘Letris’ is part
of Reset TV’s catalog, the company responsible for ‘Operación Triunfo’. We’ll also present
other productions from their catalog like
‘Minuto de Gloria’, an interesting game show
in which two contestants aspire to become
music stars. ttv
