As the leading producer and broadcaster of hit Spanish-language reality competitions, Telemundo is set to launch Los 50 (The 50), an innovative family-friendly format like no other premiering in the U.S. for the first time ever in July. The show, known internationally as The Fifty, was created by Banijay Productions France. This adaptation is set to be one of the biggest reality competitions in the history of U.S. Hispanic TV, and will be produced by EndemolShine Boomdog. The series will welcome 50 renowned personalities who will live together in a luxurious hacienda, disconnected from the outside world as they compete in a series of unpredictable and daring elimination challenges. Playing under the command of the eccentric and mysterious game master, El León (The Lion), together with his team of assistants comprised of foxes, dogs, and rabbits, participants will have to make alliances and develop strategies to avoid elimination until one of them walks away with the cash prize, up to $350,000. For the first time on Hispanic TV, viewers will have the chance to be part of the action and win a cash prize by supporting their favorite celebrity player. Celebrity participants and more details on how viewers can participate will be announced soon.
“As the #1 Spanish-language broadcast home of hit reality competitions, Los 50 represents an innovative and daring proposal for our audiences of all ages,” said Ronald Day, President of Entertainment and Content Strategy for Telemundo. “This one-of-a-kind format brings together an unprecedented 50 personalities and puts them to the ultimate test, while allowing viewers to immerse themselves in the action and, most of all, having the exclusive opportunity to take home a significant amount of cash at the end of the competition.”
