HABLA NOW, the latest installment of the award-winning “Habla” series from HBO Latino, debuts FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 (9:00-10:00 pm ET/PT). The one-hour documentary special features testimonials from U.S. Latinos sharing their personal experiences directly to the camera for a national audience, in both English and Spanish. The special features chef and humanitarian José Andrés, Olympian Laurie Hernandez, actress Diane Guerrero, Emmy nominated journalist Mariana Atencio and many more.



HABLA NOW will be available on HBO Latino and to stream on HBO Max.

“Habla” is a landmark public affairs news and documentary program featuring interviews with everyday heroes, a cadre of inspiring celebrities and influential Latinos from all walks of life who, through their reflections and testimonies, lift the voices of the nearly 50 million+ Latinos who live and thrive in the United States. Sometimes funny, often poignant, always truthful, the program provides a platform to reflect, celebrate and honor the humanity and strength of individual Latino lives. The stories told have an educational and cultural impact not only on the fast-growing American Latino community, but also with a broader audience. The universal experiences shared in “Habla” provide an opportunity to bridge cultural gaps in both directions.

"The Latino population is incredibly diverse, but it’s often painted with a wide monochromatic brush,” says director and series creator, Alberto Ferreras. “Since 2003, ‘Habla’ (Speak Up) has created a space to include Latinos from all walks of life in order to lift up the voices and experiences of this group, and better reflect our depth and diversity. With this latest installment of the series, we hope to spark thoughtful conversation and build bridges of understanding, as we work together to reimagine a more just and inclusive United States of America.”

Emmy-award nominated and Peabody award–winning journalist, author and speaker Mariana Atencio has joined the growing Talento Unlimited roster. The boutique marketing consultancy representing Latina, Latino and multicultural content creators is tasked with fostering new partnerships with brands and organizations to build engaging content campaigns and digital experiences that harness Mariana’s unique story-telling style and connection with consumers.
