GoTV, Latin Anywhere Merge to Form Latin Everywhere
Latin Everywhere's RCTV telenovela 'Juana la Virgen' inspired the CW drama 'Jane the Virgin'
Jorge Granier’s Spanish-language digital entertainment company GoTV has merged with Rich Hull’s Latin Anywhere. The new company, which will have Granier stay on as CEO while Hull will take the role of executive chairman, will be called Latin Everywhere.
Latin Everywhere will be one of the largest Spanish-language digital rights holders of television and feature film content in the world, with more than 50,000 hours of award-winning telenovelas and feature-length films, as well as web series like Isla Presidencial (more than 40 million total views) and daily shortform content.

Latin Everywhere will absorb GoTV’s YouTube network that boasts 5 million subscribers and averages more than 50 million views per month and will continue the digital platform partnerships with companies like Hulu, Amazon, Google, Netflix and others.
Recently, Granier partnered with U.S. television producers to create Jane the Virgin, based on Latin Everywhere’s RCTV telenovela Juana la Virgen. The new company plans to continue to exploit the rights to and remake the telenovelas and series in its catalog.
Granier and Hull said in a joint statement: "Latin Everywhere operates at the intersection of eyeballs and assets. U.S. Hispanics are the fastest-growing demographic in America for content consumption and the depth of our library allows us to service our audience with the best in television, film and user-generated material while streamlining advertisers to this in-demand market."
