Univision to launch ‘Story House’ production studio


Spanish-language broadcaster Univision is launching Univision Story House, a new unit that will produce original content for the company’s network portfolio as well as third parties. The studio will create content in English and Spanish and will be part of the company’s recently announced Fusion Media Group.

Story House has signed a production deal with HBO for two projects. “Outpost” is a ten-part series that combines experiential journalism and adventure. The series offers viewers a local perspective of faraway places through immersive stories about current affairs, subcultures, the environment, and adventure sports. “Hate in America” ​​will see Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos investigate why hate seems to be growing in this country.

Based in Los Angeles, Story House will be overseen by Camila Jimenez Villa, who will serve as president and chief content officer of Fusion Media Group, and creatively led by Juan Rendón. Christian Gabela will assume the role of Vice President and General Manager and will help lead strategy and partnerships as well as manage the day-to-day operations of the team. Rendón and Silvana Aguirre will serve as the company’s creative directors.

Rendón previously headed the documentary division of Univision and Fusion where he produced, directed and produced over 15 documentaries since 2012. Aguirre most recently served as Creative Director for UniMás.

The team will report to Isaac Lee, director of news and digital for Univision.
