Discovery U.S. Hispanic Networks Announce 2014-2015 Lineup

On Tuesday night, Discovery U.S. Hispanic Networks announced their 2014-2015 programming lineup at their Upfront at Stage 37 in New York City. Embracing the Upfront’s theme, “feel closer,” the event highlighted Discovery en Español’s and Discovery Familia’s understanding of the Hispanic audience and their ability connect effectively with Hispanic viewers. Discovery talents in attendance included Dave Salmoni of Islas mortales con Dave Salmoni (Mystery of the Lost Island), Antonio Brunet of Cromo clandestino (Chrome Underground), Mago Pop’s Antonio Diaz, brothers Raúl and Rolando Mendez of Texas trocas, and the Cake Boss himself, Buddy Valastro, representing Discovery Familia.

Throughout the Upfront program, Discovery en Español highlighted new shows that support the network’s “Motor Mondays” theme nights as well as new, edgier material with new seasons of Supervivencia al desnudo (Naked & Afraid), and the premiere of Al límite (Tethered) and Sálvate si puedes  (Survive That). Additionally, building the channel’s natural history profile, the channel announced the series Islas mortales con Dave Salmoni (Mystery of the Lost Island) and Sobrevivir (Survival) as well as Mago pop, a part of the network’s Enigma thematic night, which will also include new seasons of (Lo inexplicable).

The Latina-oriented network, Discovery Familia, presented its focus on broader aspects of Hispanic women’s lives, ranging from sensitive health topics in new series such as Soy muy joven para esto (I don’t have time for this) to shows based on beauty, such as Desafio fashionista (Ultimate shopper), Volver a empezar (Starting over) and  ¡No te lo pongas! (What Not to Wear). Additionally, the channel will premiere Sobreprotegidos (World’s Worst Mom) and enhance its home programming with a new season of its successful show Vívala o véndala (Love it or List it). The network is also introducing new seasons of Cake Boss and El desafío de Buddy (Cake Boss: Next Great Baker).
