Violetta has been a revelation. What started as a bit of an experiment to venture into the world of Argentinian television didnt take too long to go big.

How It All Began
It was the success of television shows like Patito Feo and Floricienta that attracted Disney towards making its own series for Latin, especially Argentinian audiences. The channel had begun to once again broadcast its shows in Argentina as that was thought of being an attractive market. The shooting began in the latter half of 2011 which went on for about seven months.
Martina Stoessel was brought onboard to play the lead role and Violetta premiered in the year 2012. The first two regions where it was telecasted were Italy and Latin America. The inaugural season went on air on 25th October.
Second Season and More Success
