Upfront 2013: Univision Communications

Univision Communications Inc. unveiled its 2013-14 programming lineup presenting more than 30 new shows and an emphasis on more targeted, multimedia programming. Here’s a look at what’s coming up.

Four new telenovelas include: La Tempestad (The Storm), about Marina who finds work and love in a small fishing village; Mentir para Vivir (Lie So You Can Live), about Oriana, who flees to a Mexican resort hotel and takes on a false identity to protect her daughter; Libre Para Amarte (Free to Love), about Aurora who supports her family by taking over a famous taxi stand in Mexico City; and La Mujer del Vendaval (The Woman from Vendaval) about Marcela who is about to receive a large inheritance on the condition that she marry.

Three new comedies include: Durmiendo con mi Jefe (Sleeping with my Boss), a modern Mexican twist on the classic sitcom The Odd Couple; Todo Incluido (All-Inclusive), which  showcases the popular alter egos of comedian Adrian Uribe; and Casate Conmigo (Marry Me) about a woman who flees the altar for the third time.

Reality series include: Va Por Ti, which searches for the next music superstar; Mira Quien Baila! 4 (Look Who’s Dancing! 4), the reality dance competition returning for a fourth season; Nuestra Belleza Latina 8 (Our Latin Beauty 8), the reality/drama/talent contest/beauty pageant returning for an eighth season; and Parodiando 3 (Parody 3), a comedy featuring contestants competing as all-time favorite celebrities.

Through a joint venture, Univision News and Participant Media have come together to produce and market a series of ten documentaries drawn from the headlines and produced in both Spanish and English.

Unimas presents eight new drama series, including Metastasis, based on Breaking Bad, which tells the story of a high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer; and La Viuda Negra (The Black Widow), based on the true story of Griselda Blanco, “The Cocaine Godmother,” who ruled the Miami drug trade in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Galavision has three new entries: #Hoy Soy Nadie (#Today I’m Nobody), set in the real world and the murky world of cyberspace; Mistico e Inexplicable (Mystical and Unexplainable), a show that explores the paranormal; and Mexico, a series of hour-long documentaries dedicated to the experience of Mexico through its history, culture, sports and people.

Univision Deportes offers an action-packed summer with 90 Dias de Delirio (90 Days of Madness), featuring the most exciting soccer matches and tournaments from around the globe.
