The Kitchen Russia






FEBURARY 6, 2017                                                                     FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


MIAMI/RUSSIA: Literally on the heals of announcing its foray into the emerging EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) markets, The Kitchen has announced the formation of The Kitchen-Russia, based in Moscow.

With newly appointed Managing Director of The Kitchen EMEA, Yoram Chertok cementing the deal, The Kitchen Russia becomes the first overseas acquisition of the 16 year old, Miami-based, Emmy Winning language-dubbing studio.

“The Kitchen-Russia, originally called D&C TV, is a studio I am quite familiar with,” Yoram Chertok explained. “I know that the D&C product can match the quality of work that The Kitchen is known for, as I’ve worked with them on behalf of numerous major distribution companies from Western Europe and the Far East.  We are extremely excited about being able to offer our clients the very best in Russian dubbing, as more and more distributors are recognizing the value and importance of all of the Eastern European languages.”

The Kitchen currently provides dubbing services, to and from the Russian language for a number of well-known producers of children’s programming and live action series. 

Yoram Chertok continued, “The Russian TV and New Media market is a major one and therefore we prioritize it. We believe that for a job well done, one needs to understand this unique market inside and out – regulation, client's needs and most importantly – budgets.  The Kitchen Russia, as all of EMAE's studios, will offer high quality, best rates and always a friendly hand and listening ear to the client's needs.”

 In order to facilitate the large volume of anticipated projects coming in, The Kitchen Russia will also soon be adding a well-known St. Petersburg based studio to the team – an excellent, tested and highly skilled facility as well.

 “Yoram will spearhead the company’s immediate planned expansion into Europe, The Middle East and Africa”, announced Ken Lorber, President/CEO of the parent company, The Kitchen, LLC.

“In his previous position, Yoram had been our “go to” guy for many of the languages we have not been able to provide in Miami.  We have depended upon him for much of our German, Russian and Arabic dubbing work and he has always delivered exceptionally high quality product on time and within budget”, Lorber stated.

The entire team in Miami is thrilled to have such strong representation across the pond.  “The Kitchen is highly regarded throughout the global industry,” Yoram Chertok added.  “It starts with the people and I knew that I wanted to work with this group from the get-go.  They understand the ever-changing global market, and what is needed to succeed and grow.  They pride themselves in servicing the client and I’m that way too.  Relationships are what makes any company work, and I am delighted to spearhead The Kitchen’s new venture overseas and to continue their unique philosophy.”

 “There is a very aggressive expansion planned for this coming year with our first two new Kitchen’s being launched in Russia and Moldova this month.  The two new Kitchen studios have been tried and tested”, Chertok explained.  “I have worked with both of them with remarkably good results”, he added.

While specifics have not yet been disclosed, there will be progressive movement west as The Kitchen continues to acquire interests in studios throughout Western Europe and beyond.

The Kitchen brand is widely known for its high quality, yet cost competitive product.  The intention is to provide clients around the globe with a new and better alternative for their dubbing and subtitling needs.

The Industry’s Only Emmy Winning Dubbing Studios


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                    October 26, 2015

MIAMI/JOHANNESBURG:  The Kitchen, the industry’s only Emmy Award Winning language dubbing studios, will be returning to DISCOP Africa again this year.

The leader provider of language dubbing for the pan-African market is excited to again be a part of DISCOP Africa and is thrilled to be an important and major contributor to the success of the African television market.

 “DISCOP Africa has become one of our most successful markets each year,” Ken Lorber, President/CEO of The Kitchen, explained.  “It is an excellent opportunity for us to meet face to face with the programmers, distributors, producers, networks and studios from around the globe, all wishing to air their product on the African TV networks”. 

While The Kitchen dubs all languages, into US English, Brazilian Portuguese and Parisian French, it relies on its close association with Ear Candy, South Africa’s leading dubbing company, to provide many of the local Sub-saharan African languages

“Our understanding of the African market has given us the opportunity to lead the industry in providing localized content for all formats of programming,” Lorber continued, “however it is no secret that the telenovela genre continues to rank high amongst African viewer requests throughout the continent.  That’s why there is so much demand for the localized product, and we’re convinced that nobody does it better than we do here at The Kitchen.”

According to DISCOP, “The African marketplace is now worth HALF A BILLION US DOLLARS in annual TV content sales, twice more than three years ago”. The Kitchen’s growth continues to emulate this growth, as new studios, staff and technology continue to expand and evolve with the expanding needs of its global clients.

The Kitchen recently announced the formation of a joint venture with Cisneros Media Distribution whereby 12 new recording studios will be constructed in Venezuela for the exclusive use of The Kitchen, for Latam Spanish dubbing.  This will bring to 30, the total number of studios being operated by The Kitchen.

Ken Lorber, along with Deeny Kaplan, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing, will be on hand throughout DISCOP Africa.

CMD & The Kitchen

Cisneros Media Distribution and The Kitchen

Join Forces to Expand Dubbing and Media Services


MIAMI – September 8, 2015 - Cisneros Media Distribution (CMD), a global distributor of entertainment content, and The Kitchen, an award-winning language translation, dubbing and subtitling services studio, today announced a strategic alliance to offer specialized dubbing services for the world’s Spanish-speaking markets, effective immediately.

Under the newly-formed alliance, The Kitchen will be the exclusive sales and marketing agent for Latin Spanish dubbing worldwide and Cisneros Media Distribution will be the exclusive provider of the voices, utilizing its large cast of actors and actresses under contract with its affiliated production companies in Venezuela.

The Kitchen will share its expertise in all facets of dubbing and its Emmy award-winning language technology with Cisneros Media Distribution.  The alliance will also allow The Kitchen to expand its offerings of post-production and media services, leveraging those services provided by Cisneros Media’s companies for more than 50 years.

“We always look to continue to diversify and strengthen our position in the industry, and through this alliance with The Kitchen, we are expanding our business model to offer additional services to our clientele; it’s a natural progression for us,” stated Cosme Lopez, SVP & General Manager of Pay TV Channels & Services of Cisneros Media Distribution.  “We’ve known of The Kitchen’s professionalism and vast experience in the language business, and we look forward to extending this alliance in the coming years.  Together, our goal is not only to become the leader in Spanish-language dubbing for the Americas, but to increase our reach and services to become the principal provider of multi-lingual dubbing in the world market.”

“While The Kitchen has always offered Latin Spanish dubbing in our Miami facility,” explained Ken Lorber, President/CEO of The Kitchen, “it was difficult to offer competitive pricing for the Latin, or Neutral Spanish markets.  Our goal, for the past 15 years, has always been to look for better ways in which to service our global clients, and we couldn’t be more excited by this new alliance, which allows us to do just that.”.

“Our Miami studios,” Lorber continued, “specialize in providing dubbing and subtitling into U.S. English, Parisian French, Brazilian Portuguese, as well as other languages. Working together with Cisneros Media Distribution, we will be able to share an abundance of knowledge, experience and talent, while offering the most competitive Latin Spanish dubbing rates in the industry, as well as other media services for the market.”

An abundance of new programming, originated in Turkish, Hindi, French, Mandarin and Korean, for example, continues to penetrate every country around the globe and language is no longer a barrier. With the proliferation of new formats and digital platforms, the need for global language services is even greater.  The coming-together of these two companies is certain to provide the highest quality and most competitively priced solutions for language dubbing.

“This is a great business opportunity for Cisneros Media Distribution and The Kitchen,” Lorber added.  “We’re offering the very best of both worlds, putting all of our services and resources into this new venture, combining the Emmy award-winning technology and language service experience of The Kitchen, and the multi-faceted and global media expertise of Cisneros Media Distribution.”
