New programming caters to the diverse lifestyles of U.S. Latinos
LATV, the national bicultural entertainment network, announced the April 18th launch of five new series created to engage the highly coveted bicultural 18-49 Latino demographic. With the reality genre serving as the main focus of LATV’s new series, the network plans to take on the paranormal world with Codigo Paranormal, the transformational reality genre with Transformacion Radical Express & Star Central and the romance genre with Chef 911 & Pareja En Llamas.
According to the latest U.S. Census figures, Hispanics account for 16.3 percent of the population – slightly more than 50 million Latinos are shaping the entertainment landscape and LATV is poised to meet their television viewing needs.
