Telemundo Media President Emilio Romano kicked of the network’s 2013 upfront presentation on Tuesday night at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall stating the “Power of T” has delivered record audiences and claiming to be the “only Spanish-language network that’s growing.”
Telemundo execs proudly touted they will be producing over 1,000 hours of new, original content across broadcast, mobile and online platforms for the new season.
The wealth of original productions from Telemundo Studios sets the #2 network apart from its competitors.
Celebrity coaches Paulina Rubio, Prince Royce and Roberto Tapia helped promote the return of Telemundo’s new hit reality competition “La Voz Kids” for a second season with a live performance on stage.
Telemundo unveiled a lineup of 5 new telenovelas, a gossip show and a new variety competition show in association with Ryan Seacrest Productions called “Duelo Musical: Super Estrella.”
The show ended with a surprise performance from Marc Anthony.
Here’s Telemundo’s 2013-14 programming lineup:
“Dama y Obrero”
“Reina de Corazones”
“Camelia la Tejana”
“Suelta la Sopa” – daily celebrity-driven gossip series in which a team of paparazzi will deliver insider news and headlines that will have viewers buzzing about the celebrities they love.
“Entre Grandes Y Chicos” – new game show in which adults compete against kids in wacky role-reversal games to see what it’s like from each other’s perspectives.
“Duelo Musical: Super Estrella” – showdown between two well-known music icons who go head to head in a friendly music battle royale. The variety-competition show, produced in association with Ryan Seacrest Productions, will feature performances by some of today’s top talent. Each week the two artists will face off in four rounds of music-based games and sing-offs. The audience will vote after each round to determine a winner, but the results for each round are not revealed until the very end of the show.
“MISS LATINA USA” – exclusive new reality series where one talented, beautiful woman will compete to win the title of MISS LATINA USA™ and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to compete in the MISS UNIVERSE® pageant. Multi-city auditions will be held to select contestants based on poise, physical attributes and personality. Once chosen, the competitors will move in to a luxurious mansion where they will live together and undergo training by a team of talented experts in fields such as modeling, acting, fashion, nutrition and beauty.
The new series represents the first time in the history of the MISS UNIVERSE® pageant that a U.S. contestant other than MISS USA® will be awarded the opportunity to participate in the MISS UNIVERSE® competition.
