More than a year after Univision announced plans for a new music reality-competition at its 2014 Upfront, “La Banda” has got a launch date. The search for the “ultimate boy band” begins Sunday, September 13th.
Developed by Univision Communications and Simon Cowell’s SYCO Entertainment, the weekly show will air at 8 pm.
“La Banda” is executive produced by Simon Cowell and Ricky Martin, who also serves as a judge alongside Laura Pausini and Alejandro Sanz.
Auditions were held nationwide in major cities including Los Angeles, Houston, New York, Chicago, Miami and in Puerto Rico, as well as via the show’s official online site, LaBandaOficial.com.
Contestants will compete for their place in “La Banda” and for a coveted recording contract with Sony Music Latin. Ricky Martin will manage the winning band.
