Jennifer Lopez spills details on her ambitious new music competition series
Jennifer Lopez, Simon Fuller and Marc Anthony officially announced the details of their Latin music competition series that EW exclusively reported last week.
Tweaking the name to Q’Viva! The Choice, the show seeks out the best Latin America music performers “from remote villages to major cities.” (Truly, if you know how to sing, no matter where you are, a reality show is going to find you!). The ambitious project will be shot in three languages and “broadcast simultaneously across 21 countries.” BlackBerry has signed on to sponsor the show.
Of course, anybody can announce a TV series; it’s not real until there’s a network on board. Sources tell EW the Q’Viva! team already has a couple foreign distributors, but still needs to find a domestic partner.
“This is a show for the 21st century with an unprecedented global and local story,” Lopez said in a statement. “The Latin culture is a tapestry that is rich in passion, tradition and artistry. We are going to places where all of this talent lives and wouldn’t have otherwise been discovered. This journey for me and Marc is going be exciting and groundbreaking.”
