As covered in Variety last week, The Lift has signed a first look deal with LA-based, Spanish-language streaming platform Pantaya and Latino Hollywood studio Pantelion.

Arriving to answer the demand for original streaming content, we will produce direct-to-platform Spanish-language pics to stream exclusively on Pantaya in the United States. Pantelion will serve as the studio on the projects, tapping its long-established relationships with some of the leading producers in Mexico and beyond.

“In the 10-plus year history of Pantelion, we have had the pleasure to work multiple times with Avelino Rodriguez and his team at The Lift,” recalled CEO of Pantaya and Pantelion, Paul Presburger. “These companies are leaders and innovators in the world of Spanish-language content, and I look forward to sharing all of the exciting films that are to come with Pantaya’s loyal subscribers.”

We are thrilled to be a part of this amazing group and are excited to see what the future holds as we expand the scope of Spanish-language media.
