This major partnership gives Global Agency to represent SIC’s five telenovelas, namely: ‘More Than Love’, ‘Frozen Memories’, ‘Heart of Gold’, ‘Will For Revenge’ and ‘Winter Sun’.

Izzet PINTO, CEO of Global Agency, said: “We are extremely happy to be partnering with SIC, one of the major Portuguese broadcasters. I believe this association will enable the two companies to build and develop synergies together. It is the first time that we are partnering with SIC and I am certain that it won’t be the last.”

Rogério Canhoto, CRO of SIC, commented: “Global Agency is exactly the type of company we were looking for international distribution in the CIS and Eastern Europe regions, knowing it will ensure that our telenovelas will be marketed as we have envisioned in this very competitive market of content sales”.
