June 04, 2014 --

Los Angeles, CA, June 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tristan Leostar  announced its deal with Olympusat to serve
as its content aggregator for Olympusat's English
Language Latin Themed television network in the U.S.. The new
-yet-to-be- named network intends to launch in 2015 and
will feature movies and series.

Tristan Leostar has a strong track record for acquiring and
producing high quality independent movies. Olympusat's
business strategy has always focused on delivering Latin
content through new platforms. "We will continue to change the face
of  television programming with the launch of this
new English television network with a Latin perspective
while continuing to explore international distribution
opportunities in selected markets." says Tom Mohler, CEO of
Olympusat.

"We are now planning to maximize Olympusat's capabilities to
bring an increasing variety of commercial and innovative
films directly to Bi-lingual speaking viewers. Tristan Leostar is a
strong aggregator to make this a successful network as
we continue what has already been a productive relationship."
says Maria Luz Zucchella, Olympusat's VP
of  Acquisitions. 

Tristan Leostar will license rights to current feature films and
TV series in English targeting second and
third-generation Latinos who are often bilingual but
speak English as their primary language.
 "I have watched Latin Americans
 struggle for a space within the film, television,
and music industry for many years. By
developing this new network for Olympusat, we aim to continue
overcoming the stereotypes that mainstream have constructed about
them." says Dina Almeida, CEO of Tristan Leostar.  Sandra
Avila has been tapped by Almeida to assist Tristan Leostar's Latin
division in finding films.
