“Our new cutting-edge partnerships expand Telemundo’s dominant position and commitment to the evolving Hispanic market,” said Peter Blacker, Executive Vice President of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises Digital Media and Emerging Business. “We continue to develop content experiences across multiple screens, formats and languages informed by audience insights and predictive data, connecting with young Hispanic consumers better than any other media company in the U.S.”
In partnership with E!, Telemundo will develop the first total-market entertainment property for bicultural audiences across the U.S. & Latin America. The project will be anchored by a weekly entertainment show called “The Mix” (WT) to be co-distributed on linear, digital and social platforms via E! News, Telemundo and Universo. In keeping with Telemundo’s Upfront theme, Beyond Language, Powerful Consumers, the show will be produced in both English and Spanish using bilingual talent, and will cover a broad range of topics including a mashup of the top Hispanic news stories in entertainment, candid interviews with special guests, and highlights of Hispanic celebrities in fashion, style and beauty. All production efforts will be centralized out of Miami from the network’s new global headquarters, Telemundo Center. The new show is scheduled to launch in October 2018 leading up to NBCUniversal’s broadcast of the Latin American Music Awards and the People’s Choice Awards.
Since its launch in 2008, Hulu has consistently been at the forefront of entertainment and technology, with a U.S. subscriber count of more than 20 million.
