Simon Cowell Developing Latino Boyband Competition Show
Simon Cowell is entering into the Hispanic entertainment world with a new reality show.
The X Factor creator will produce boyband competition show La Banda, in which contestants will vie to earn a spot in a Latino group.
He says, "I'm delighted to be partnering with Univision... They are fantastically ambitious and, most importantly for La Banda, they are totally focused on discovering and creating the next music superstars. There is a huge opportunity for this band and we are going to be giving the power via this show to the millions of teenage fans."
The series is slated to premiere next year (15).
