New Miami Studio for Viacom

MTV Viacom Miami Studio

Viacom Inc’s global entertainment brands (Nickelodeon, MTV et al) are to gain a class leading production hub with the opening of a two-stage, 88,000 square foot production facility in Miami, Florida. Sat Bal (6 Oct’15) 

 

The new studio is public-private partnership between its builder the Miami Omni Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and EUE/Screen Gems Studios.

“We are creating more content than ever before across all of our brands at Viacom,” said Robert Bakish, president and CEO of Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN). “The Viacom International Studio in Miami will offer a turnkey facility where we can create even more original, high quality content to meet the increasing demand for long-and-short-form content on all of our global platforms.”

“We have had terrific success with the recent live action productions we have coming from Miami, and we are very excited to be committed to doing more,” said Cyma Zarghami, president, Viacom Kids and Family Group. “We are constantly looking for new creative ideas and content formats that allow us to tell stories in a completely different way, and this facility will certainly forward that effort.” 

From central Miami, the studio location benefits from the area’s highly skilled, multilingual talent, enabling global productions in multiple languages.  The studio’s two sound stages are able to create a variety of content simultaneously, from daily scripted series, music specials and game shows to short form content for mobile, digital and on-air.  

“Viacom has demonstrated again and again that hits come from all over the world,” said Pierluigi Gazzolo, president, VIMN Americas and Executive Vice President, Nickelodeon International.  “With an established track record of multi-lingual hits including Every Witch Way and Talia in the Kitchen being produced in Miami for multiple audiences simultaneously, in global collaboration with the US and local Latin American teams, we’re excited to have the opportunity to further expand our production capabilities in the market.”

“We welcome Viacom as a long-term partner at our new Miami studios," said Chris Cooney, COO, EUE/Screen Gems Studios. “Our company has worked closely with Viacom to develop a facility worthy of a dynamic content producer. Today, we celebrate our relationship with Viacom, and we applaud our partners at the Omni CRA, whose vision and efforts have made this building possible.”

VIMN Americas’ Miami HQ drives Viacom’s businesses across Latin America and Canada and the company reports that VIMN Americas has increased its production output in Miami three-fold within the past five years.
