Among the network's exclusive Latin America premieres are the Queen Latifah starrer Steel Magnolias and Drew Peterson: Untouchable, featuring Rob Lowe.

Lifetime, which targets female audiences, will be distributed by HBO Latin America Group. Eduardo Ruiz, president of A+E Networks Latin America, will serve as general manager of the new channel.
