Cinelatino has close working relations with Los Angeles-based production company, Plus Entertainment, helmed by executive producer Pejman Partiyeli and producers Gonzalo Gonzalez and Rene Michelle Aranda. Plus Entertainment's annual slate of features is produced its entirety to suit Cinelatino's niche market and distributes titles to the likes of Redbox, Walmart and Netflix to promote the network's presence in the U.S., primarily Hollywood. Recent Plus Entertainment titles that have aired on Cinelatino include theatrically screened Cherry Red Kiss (Beso de cereza),[2] Sins of a Call Girl (Pecados de una dama del noche) starring Emmy-nominated actress Vannessa Vasquez of East Los High, 4-time film festival award winning [3] Smile Now Cry Later (Sonríe hoy llora despues) and more.[4]
