Telemundo and NBC Universo share Upfront stage

Telemundo and NBC Universo share Upfront stage

Telemundo-NBCUniverso2015UpfrontsUnder the theme  of “All Together. Latino,” NBCUniversal Hispanic Group’s annual Upfront presentation emphasized the importance of digital in reaching younger audiences, announcing strategies targeting “Generation M” – Millennial, Multicultural and Mobile.

Company executives also recognized the power and impact of Latino culture in the market and pitched “CultureFirst,” an NBCU proprietary strategic approach to help inform advertisers’ decisions when designing campaigns directed to the Hispanic segment.

On the programming front, Telemundo boasted a 20% year-to-date ratings increase in its weekday primetime among adults 18-49, registering a record high share, 6 points more than a year ago, according to Nielsen.

The third season of “El Señor de Los Cielos,” which ranked #1 in Spanish-language in its daypart every night of the week among adults 18-49 and 18-34 delivering a 41% share, has fueled the network’s commitment to stick with its 10 pm strategy of faster-paced, action-packed and shorter scripted drama super series designed to return for multiple seasons.

Meanwhile, newly rebranded NBC Universo anchors its programming with sports, new scripted and reality shows.

Peter Blacker, EVP of Digital Media presented Telemundo's digital initiatives.

Among its “Generation M” digital initiatives, the group announced:

  • “Double Acción,” a concurrent scripted experience, which plays out storytelling on two screens via a mobile device while the TV show is playing.
  • R.A.V.E (Real-time Augmented Virtual Experiences) to complement the viewing experience with multiple camera angles and incremental stories by combining a brandable attachment to a smart phone.
  • An Interactive Comic Book Series which allows fans to insert themselves into the action via a mobile device, which they can then share with friends.
  • A partnership with DEFY Media, an independent creator and distributor of digital content focused on the influential 13-34 demographic, to develop new social and mobile content specifically designed for “Generation M.” The partnership will be focused around DEFY Media’s popular Spanish-language channel, Clevver Teve, with initial initiatives centered around moms, fitness and beauty running across digital, linear and mobile platforms launching in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • FLUENCY studios’ “Ana Maria in Novela Land,” which recently aired on sister network Oxygen, will be seen on Telemundo, NBC UNIVERSO and on digital platforms in Spanish this fall. The studio’s next film will be the Psychological thriller “Sophie,” about a brilliant young marketing executive who is haunted by new details of her mother’s death.

Telemundo Deportes rebrands as NBC Deportes

Telemundo Deportes rebrands as NBC Deportes

NBC Deportes logoNBCU’s Hispanic Enterprises and Content (HEC) and NBC Sports Group announced the creation of a new Hispanic sports production unit called NBC Deportes.

Eli Velazquez, who was promoted in January to EVP Sports, Hispanic Enterprises and Content, will lead NBC Deportes, which will leverage the resources of the NBC Sports Group.

The new unit will essentially take over the sports production role previously held by Telemundo Deportes. A company spokesperson insists NBC Deportes isn’t a rebranding, because the newly created unit will be responsible for generating content not just for Telemundo, but also for NBC Universo and all digital platforms.

While there is nothing certain, the spokesperson said “Deportes Telemundo” may continue to exist on the air of the Telemundo network.

The @TelemundoDeportes twitter handle, with its over 97,000 followers, has been taken over by @NBCDeportes.

In an email sent out on Tuesday afternoon, hours before Telemundo’s Upfront, HEC Chairman Joe Uva told staff:

“NBC Deportes will produce all of the sports events for all of our networks and digital channels, including all FIFA World Cup competitions, the Olympics, our CONCACAF World Cup and Olympic Qualifying tournaments, our Premier League matches, Liga MX games, the NFL, NASCAR and a line-up of action sports which will be added to the NBC UNIVERSO schedule over the next couple of years.”

NBC Deportes will capitalize on the parent company’s brand, logo and “incorporate the iconic Peacock.”

On February 1 of this year, NBCU/Telemundo rebranded mun2 to NBC Universo, using the same formula.

Telemundo to launch variety show “La Sorpresa de Tu Vida”

Telemundo to launch variety show “La Sorpresa de Tu Vida”

Raúl González and Angélica Vale will host “La sorpresa de tu vida.”

Raúl González and Angélica Vale will host “La sorpresa de tu vida.”

Hours before its Upfront presentation, Telemundo announced it will try to fill the void soon to be left by the cancellation of Univision’s “Sábado Gigante.”

The #2 Spanish-language network will launch “La Sorpresa de Tu Vida” (The Surprise of Your Life), a weekly two-hour, family-oriented Saturday night show that will help contestants’ “dreams come true.”

Hosted by singer/actress Mexican Angélica Vale and Venezuelan TV personality Raúl González – both former Univision talents – “La Sorpresa de Tu Vida” will be taped in front of a studio audience in Miami and will feature special guests and celebrities.

“We identified an opportunity on Saturday nights a while ago and took our time to develop the right concept and identify the right talent,” said Luis Silberwasser, President, Telemundo Network in a statement. “Angélica and Raúl are the perfect hosts for this modern, interactive format that will appeal to the whole Hispanic family.”

This will be Angélica’s debut on Telemundo. The actress, who has starred in a series of Televisa telenovelas, films and television shows, also had a stint on Univision’s “Despierta América.” That’s where she met her soon to be co-host Raúl, who after 13 years, left his gig on the #1 Spanish-language morning show last year to join Telemundo.

With this variety show, Telemundo hopes to attract a multi-generational family audience, a feat that may be difficult to achieve, given that Latino millenials prefer to consume English-language and video streaming content.

“Sábado Gigante” has been facing the same challenge in recent years. Despite its popularity, the show helmed by Mario Kreutzberger, aka “Don Francisco”, has steadily lost younger viewers.

The show will replace Telemundo’s Saturday night movie. No exact air date has been announced.
