New Programs on Univision, Telemundo, Mun2 & others
When will your favorite TV shows return and which news shows will join the lineup? Those questions and more are being answered by some of your favorite networks including Univision, Telemundo, Mun2 and MTV Tr3s as part of their “upfronts” which is an annual meeting where they announce program changes and start selling billions of dollars in advertising time.
You’ve probably already heard that NBC is dropping Law and Order and that’s all part of the upfront process. Univision presents Thursday, but we’ve got a preview of some of what they may announce and also have updated from several others:
Univision (and TeleFutura, Galavision and its radio, Web and mobile assets):
Univision Communications CEO Joe Uva told B&C in April that the Hispanic media giant is considering launching new services both online and in mobile. The network will also be showcasing new programming in its 10 p.m. hour. The Unvision upfront is scheduled for Thursday.
Mun2 will launch reality show “Jenni Rivera presents Chiquis & Raq-C.” Co-produced with Mexican music star Jenni Rivera, it features two young, strong Latino women — Rivera’s oldest daughter who runs Rivera’s business and her best friend and radio DJ, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Telemundo COO Jackie Hernandez said the Mun2 success comes from the network’s focus on YLAs, young Latino Americans who are passionate about such things as music, fashion/style, reality and sports.

Have you watched any Spanish-language programming online? Telemundo also announced that they will begin streaming its telenovelas with English subtitles online with the hope of expanding their reach and audience.
Telemundo is expanding its primetime from three to four hours as of next week with the help of the 7 p.m. launch of “A Corazon Abierto” (“With an Open Heart”), a Spanish version of “Grey’s Anatomy,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Today, the MTV channel is expected to announce a new name: Tr3s: MTV, Música y Más. The channel will continue to target 12-to-34-year-olds, but they will do more to appeal to the older part of that age range and produce programs both parents and teenagers can watch together, according to the New York Times. Changes won’t start until July 12.Tell us what you think in the comments below or on:
