Telemundo has its heart set on developing more reality shows. During a press conference today at the 2014 NATPE conference, it announced it has partnered with Spain’s Reset TV to develop, produce and distribute a new musical competition format and weekend primetime series.
“El Artista” (Working Title) is set to premiere in the 2014-15 season.
The deal includes the co-ownership and production of a new format to be based on an original concept from Reset TV. The 13 episode, two-hour weekend series will be helmed by Reset TV founders Toni Cruz and Josep Maria Mainat.
Reset TV are the creators of entertainment formats such as Crónicas Marcianas, Mira Quien Baila and Operación Triunfo, among others.
Telemundo International also announced the launch of a second feed for its pay TV channel in Latin America. Beginning February 1, 2014, Telemundo International’s new feed will cover South America and the Caribbean, providing a customizable schedule consistent with the habits of the audience in the region, while the original feed will continue to serve the Mexican territory on its own timetable.
