Background

ViacomCBS International Studios is an international division of ViacomCBS founded to focus on their global brands. The firm is headquartered in Miami, FL and opened in 2015.

1st Logo (2019-2021)

Nicknames: "V of Valvoline", "Millennial V", "The New Viacom V"

Logo: On a black background a turquoise blue strip draws down right diagonally, and another shorter strip of the same color of the last one draws up right diagonally which is to the right top of the first strip to form an abstract "v", so then, "VIACOM" in its 2006 font in white appears one letter at a time, below the "v", and then "INTERNATIONAL STUDIOS" in white appears below the font, with "international" being more skinnier than "studios". Three spotlights then appears, and then the logo reverses. With all the fonts disappearing and the strips going in reverse, with the spotlights also vanishing.

Variants:

  • Sometimes, a copyright stamp is seen below the logo.
  • Due to the remerger of Viacom and CBS in 2019, the logo sometimes appears without the "VIACOM" text.
  • There is a still variant on a shaded white background with the text "DISTRIBUIDO POR:" (translated to "distributed by") above the logo.
  • An alternate variant exists where the background strips are gray and more transparent.
  • At the end, the logo wipes to the Paramount Network or Comedy Central logos.
  • Sometimes, the background is blue and the "V" is white.

FX/SFX: The V forming and deforming, the text appearing and the spotlights appearing. None on the still version.

Music/Sounds: A fast four note piano tune that plays while the "V" forms, alongside what sounds like a heartbeat. The variant uses the ending theme of the show.

Availability: The animated logo appears on Resistiré (not the 2003 Telefe TV series), which is a Latin American version of Stranded With a Million Dollars, while the still counterpart is seen on the Chilean version of the Telefe show PH: Podemos Hablar. Also seen on the MTV miniseries Balcony Stories.

Editor's Note: This logo is a nice reimagining of the original Viacom "V of Doom" logo, except this one is calmer and a lot nicer looking.

2nd Logo (2021- )

Logo: Against a black background with a light shining downwards, a white, diagonal bar streaks across the screen. Various beams that appear to be made of glass pass over the screen, revealing more white bars, eventually revealing the letters "VIS" (with the V being the similar to the one in the previous logo, without the beveled corners). The glass beams slide off screen, as the letters settle in the middle of the screen. The byline "A Division of ViacomCBS" fades in below.

FX/SFX: The glass sliding and the wordmark forming. Simple, yet effective CGI.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 1st logo.

Availability: Brand new. It's first known appearance is on The Best of: CCN Comedy Central News con Michela Giraud.

Editor's Note: None.
