Ryan Seacrest (pictured) will produce a music competition series for NBC Universal-owned cable network Telemundo.

The variety series, tentatively titled Duelo Musical: Super Estrella (Superstar Showdown), will be co-produced by the network and Ryan Seacrest Productions. It features two musicians competing in a series of challenges for the audience votes.

The program is among some 1,000 hours of new content unveiled during the Hispanic-skewing channel’s 2013-14 Upfront presentation in New York City on Tuesday (May 14).

Other non-fiction offerings include the celebrity gossip program Suelta La Sopa, in which a team of paparazzi report insider news from the worlds of celebrity and entertainment; and the role-reversal game show Entre Grandes Y Chicos (Kids vs Grown-Ups, working title).

The network also renewed the singing competition series La Voz Kids for a second season and greenlit five primetime telenovelas.

Last week, Telemundo Media launched the Los Angeles-based multiplatform studio Fluency, which will develop and produce bilingual programming. Its slate includes the romantic comedy La Buena Mala (The Good, Bad One) and ISA, a sci-fi coming of age mystery.
