Endemol Shine Boomdog
Endemol Shine Boomdog is the new Spanish-language division of Endemol Shine North America that develops and produces original content for the U.S. Hispanic and Mexican TV markets.
The division was formed in November 2017, when Endemol Shine Latino joined forces with Mexico City-based production company Boomdog to form Endemol Shine Boomdog.
The newly combined studio focuses on original production of both scripted and unscripted content for the U.S. Hispanic and Mexican TV markets.
Boomdog CEO Alejandro Rincon will now serve as CEO of Endemol Shine Boomdog, reporting to Endemol Shine Latino President Laurens Drillich, who oversees all of Endemol Shine’s business operations in Latin America.
Boomdog and Endemol Shine Latino have been co-producing series in the region together for several years, including co-producing hit scripted series “El Vato” for Universo, “Gran Hermano” for Telemundo, “MasterChef Mexico” for TV Azteca, as well as developing the highly-anticipated upcoming drama series “Nicky Jam: El Ganador” for Telemundo.
In the U.S. Hispanic market, Endemol Shine Boomdog is producing a number of upcoming series for Telemundo, including the first-ever Spanish-language version of “MasterChef” in the U.S. (“MasterChef Latino”) and unscripted digital series, “Love Clicks 24/7” for Telemundo.com. The studio is also currently producing “Strictly Dancing” (“Mira Quién Baila”) and upcoming “Your Face Sounds Familiar” (“Tu Cara Me Suena”) for Univision.

The studio recently announced, that alongside Somos Productions and Piñolywood Studios, it is producing the first-ever scripted drama series based on the most successful Latin boy band of all time, Menudo.
