Emilio Estefan to Develop Latino-Themed Drama Series Under New Pact With 20th TV – by Lesley Goldberg

Emilio Estefan, the filmmaker, author and Grammy-winning producer behind Miami Sound Machine, Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin, is venturing into television through an overall deal with 20th Television.

Under the pact, he will create and executive produce a Latino-themed drama series with the goal to put the project into the studio’s development pipeline in the fall.

“Emilio Estefan’s eye for talent, taste in material and brilliant creative instincts have made him one of the most accomplished producers of our times, and we are excited to be in business with him,” 20th TV chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden said in a joint statement. “Reaching out to all audiences, including the Latino audience, is a critical priority for this studio as we look for that next big international hit. Emilio has a vision for a dramatic series that combines great storytelling with an authenticity in terms of Latino culture that we think every network will want on their schedule. We can’t wait to begin the development process with him.”
