This year, the Levi’s Brand will be making a big impression at the Hispanic Television Summit with their new, “docu-reality” series, entitled “Norte A Sur: Una Ruta, 5 Experiencias” which premieres this month on Discovery en Espanol. The series documents the individual experiences of five young American Latinos as they journey along the Pan-American Highway. Attendees at the Eighth Annual Hispanic Television Summit at the Hilton NY on Wednesday, September 29, will learn during the Opening Keynote address, scheduled for 9 a.m., how the Levi’s Brand and their agency, Dieste, collaborated to bring the series to life.

Diane Jones Lowrey, Levi’s Brand Director of Diversity Marketing and Operations will be joined by Dieste’s President, Aldo Quevedo, as they present the inspiration for the concept and series, and how the show is making the brand relevant in an authentic and organic way to the Young Hispanic Progressive audience.

“We are pleased that we have such a distinguished pair to open this year’s Summit,” said Larry Dunn, Group Publisher for both Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. Jones Lowrey is a marketing and communications professional, and Quevedo is a recognized leader within the community of Hispanic ad agencies
