Mun2 has commissioned three reality series for its 2013/2014 season, the Hispanic-targeted U.S. cable network’s general manager Diana Mogollon announced at an upfront press conference in New York City on Tuesday (April 16).

New to the line-up, which features more than 200 hours of original programming, are the celebrity reality series Horoscopos (pictured above), docu-series Viva Los Vargas starring boxer Fernando Vargas, and the family real estate series Reinas de Realty.

Additionally, production has begun on returning shows Larrymania, starring Latin music star Larry Hernandez, and DUB Latino, an entertainment and car culture magazine series.

“In 2013 and 2014, we will develop series surrounding the most talked-about Latino personalities,” Mogollon said in a statement. “We will bring their story to our audience, 360, across all multi-screen platforms, in the duality of language and culture that our audience looks to us for.”

The hour-long Horoscopos follows Chicago-based sisters Vicky and Marisol Terrazas, the lead singers of Mexican pop group Horoscopos de Durango, as they navigate family relationships and balance their personal and professional lives and goals.

Viva Los Vargas, another hour-long series, focuses Mexican-American boxing champ Fernando Vargas as he steps away from the ring to raise his four children in Las Vegas with his wife Martha.

Finally, the hour-long Reinas de Realty follows a pair of Los Angeles-based real estate agents Jackie Mateos and Liz Perez as they juggle family life with the ups and downs of the Southern California Latino housing market.

All three shows will premiere in 2014.

The NBC Universal-owned network will also air two new music properties, Al Tiro con La Bronca and ¡mun2POP!, and is developing a series for Spanish movie site Fandango Cine called Movie Crashers.
