Discovery en Español has announced a November 19 airdate for the premiere of its six-part series 2111, produced by Discovery Latin America and U.S. Hispanic.

Over the course of six episodes, viewers will be transported to futuristic versions of Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires. Each episode will have a particular focus, ranging from architecture and urban planning to health and well-being.

In addition, Discovery Solutions worked with various brands to create innovative integrations within the series. Brands including American Airlines, Samsung, Oracle, Bridgestone and FedEx appear throughout, featured in “relevant environments.”

The series will have its premiere on Discovery Channel Latin America on November 16.
