Discovery U.S. Hispanic is ramping up adventure and motor series for Discovery en Español and bolstering its slate of beauty and cooking series for Discovery Familia.
Both nets revealed their rosters of new series – many of them Discovery Channel titles translated into Spanish – during an upfront presentation on Monday (May 11). While Discovery en Español focuses on genres including adventure, natural history, investigation and current affairs, Discovery Familia caters to Hispanic women.
New series heading to Discovery en Español include a number of previously announced programs also headed to Discovery Channel in the U.S. The slate includes Pilgrim Studios-made Cuban Chrome (Motores: Ingenio cubano) as well as the betty-produced 6 x 60-minute series Lost and Starving (working title: Perdidos y con hambre) and the special Lunar XPrize (w/t: Premio lunar or XPrize lunar).
Meanwhile, natural history specials coming to the net are the Aquavision Television Productions-made South African lions special To be King (Leyenda de un rey) and Louie Psihoyos’ documentary Racing Extinction (En vías de extinción).
Over at Discovery Familia, new series include Buying Alaska, Top Chef, Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, How do I look (Cámbiame el look) and Quinceañera, in addition to My Big Fat Fabulous Life (Gran-diosa) and New Girls on the Block (Ahora mujeres).
