In many regions, LGBTQ people face brutality, incarceration, and constant abuse. We are focused on helping to decriminalize homosexuality in cultures where our LGBTQ family is in extreme and immediate danger.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) July 17, 2019
Jungo TV, the leading international entertainment distribution network, and Here Media, America’s first and largest LGBTQ television network, today announced a partnership to distribute Here Media’s Here TV internationally under the new brand Lushpop, a 24/7 channel targeting female and LGBTQ+ audiences on cable, satellite, and OTT.
Lushpop is set to launch later this year and will deliver the best in movies, dramas, music, fashion, beauty, design, and pop culture targeting engaged, upscale, and educated female and LGBTQ+ consumers.
“I am proud of Jungo TV’s ability to bring high-quality, affordable video content to these audiences across the globe,” said Dr. Mehmet Oz, co-founder of Jungo TV.
The channel will air programming from Here TV’s content library and specially curated content for international audiences. Here TV owns and controls the largest LGBTQ library featuring thousands of hours of award-winning movies, series, documentaries and short films, with new titles added every week.
“Lushpop will combine Jungo TV’s international reach with Here TV’s premium and expansive library to reach these exciting and fast-growing audiences and unlock opportunities with these markets on an international scale,” said George Chung, CEO and co-founder of Jungo TV. “We look forward to bringing Here TV’s programming to consumers around the world.”
Select programming includes concerts from the world’s biggest pop performers such as Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue and more, the supernatural drama series “Dante’s Cove,” “Falling for Angels,” a diverse anthology series on modern-day relationships, David Millbern’s provacative expose on online dating, “Now What?!” and movies including the Oscar-winning “Gods and Monsters” and the Spirit Award-winning “Shelter.”
"In the last few years, LGBTQ rights have made tremendous progress — but only in some parts of the developed world," said Paul Colichman, Here Media’s Chief Executive Officer. "In many regions, LGBTQ people face brutality, incarceration, and constant abuse. We are focused on helping to decriminalize homosexuality in cultures where our LGBTQ family is in extreme and immediate danger.”
JM Longoria of Jungo TV will lead the channel as Lushpop’s head of programming. Longoria’s background includes writing, producing, and acting (Imagen Award nominee).
