Fox has picked up Q’Viva! The Chosen, the docu-series from Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment and Jennifer Lopez ‘s NuYoRican Productions, and has set a premiere date of March 3.

After its premiere at 8 p.m. EST/PST on Fox, the English-language version of the Univision series will continue to air on the U.S. broadcaster with two-hour episodes for five weeks until its finale on April 7.

Q’Viva! The Chosen sees Lopez, ex-husband and singer Marc Anthony and tour director Jamie King travel through 20 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and the U.S. to find the top Latin singers, dancers, musicians and performers.

Q’Viva is a passion project on so many levels,” said Lopez. “It’s really our dream to see it come together. This is about creating a live visual experience about Latin culture, rhythm and dance.”

“The beauty of Q’Viva is that talent and artistry transcend language,” added King. “We’ve found some of the most captivating performers from all over the region and just as I’ve experienced, despite not speaking Spanish or Portuguese, their stories will resonate with everyone.”

Executive producer Simon Fuller called the series “a celebration of the Americas, the diversity, the optimism and the extraordinary richness of the culture.”

The series was also produced in association with Endemol.
