Discovery Networks Latin America has acquired the rights for the documentary Operation Victoria: The Fall of Shining Path

Discovery Networks Latin America/US Hispanic (DLA/USH) has acquired from Televix Entertainment the Latin American and U.S. Hispanic Pay TV broadcast rights for the documentary Operation Victoria: The Fall of Shining Path. The documentary was produced by Televix and Bliss S.A.C., and is directed by renowned documentary filmmaker Judith Velez, whose other credits include ¡Libérenlos Ya!

During the 1980s, Abimael Guzman led Shining Path into being one of the most brutal terrorist groups of the 20th century. Over 20,000 people were murdered. In April 1990, the Peruvian Secret Service assigns police officer Benedicto Jimenez to form a secret unit to capture Guzman. The documentary follows Jimenez and his team as they overcome limitations and capture the most wanted Latin American terrorist in September 1992.

Discovery Networks Latin America/US Hispanic will air the documentary on Discovery Channel in Latin America and on Discovery en Español in the United States in 2012.

Beverly Hills-based Televix Entertainment, founded in 1990, is a television program distributor with over 4,000 hours of programming.
