Discovery U.S. Hispanic Networks had big news to share at NYC’s Stage 37: enhanced theme nights, a new reality show… and a little magic.
“Our U.S. Hispanic networks provide advertisers with the opportunity to participate in a broad range of contextually relevant environments that uniquely differentiates the Discovery brand and truly engages the Hispanic community,” said Ivan Bargueiras, GM, Discovery U.S. Hispanic, promising “surprising stories and edgy characters.”
As part of Discovery en Espanol’s successful “Motor Mondays,” the net announced the additions of Cromo Clandestino (Chrome Underground), the recently developed docu-realities Texas Trocas and Taller de Vaca. The premiere of Al Limite (Tethered) and Salvate si puedes (Survive That) give the human adventure genre a new twist, and to address viewers’ interest in natural history, the channel announced series Islas mortales con Dave Salmoni (Mystery of the Lost Island) and Sobrevivir (Survival). Bringing magic to Enigma thematic night: Mago Pop, with a young magician using all the tricks up his sleeve to meet a pop icon.
The focus of Latina-oriented Discovery Familia is on topics that affect women’s lives, from health, in new series such as Soy Muy Joven Para Esto (I Don’t Have Time for This), about young women facing breast cancer, to beauty programs like Volver a Empezar (Starting Over), showing the makeovers of eight women carving new career paths. Added to parenting programming will be 13-part series Sobreprotegidos (World’s Worst Mom), dedicated to “diffusing parental paranoia.”
