Gloria Wants to Know It All is an animated series developed and produced by VIS, Magnus Studios, Juan José Campanella's Mundoloco Animation Studios, and Laguno Media Inc.  Gloria Wants to Know It All, centers around an eight-year-old alpaca from the big city, whose adventure begins when she goes to spend time at her grandfather's house in Pueblo Lanugo. This small town embodies the richness of the Latin American culture where there is very much to learn. Gloria learns about her culture and the different things that make her who she is. Created by Carla Curiel, Roberto Castro, Felipe Pimiento and Gaston Gorali and written by Doreen Spicer, Maria Escobedo and Diego Labat, the series will feature the music of Marc Anthony, who will work as both Executive Producer and Executive Music Producer of the series.

These productions are the first projects to be announced as part of VIS’ exclusive First Look Deal with Magnus Studios, which was recently signed as a partnership to develop, create, and produce digital video content, original music, film, and TV productions.
