NEW YORK, September 29, 2009 – On Sept 30th, ShowBizCafe Media will extend its premium movie content over to television in a partnership with V-me, the 4th largest Spanish language television network in the US. En Pantalla, the first-ever weekly film series on Spanish broadcast TV, will devote itself to reporting the latest movie news in Hollywood and Latin America, providing film reviews on US and international films and interviewing filmmakers and actors who are the newsmakers of the moment, amongst other elements.
En Pantalla, airing every Wednesday at 9P (EST) is hosted by Jack Rico, founder and editor-in-chief of ShowBizCafe.com, the first Spanish language website devoted to movies for U.S. Hispanics. Prior to launching his multimedia company, Rico was part of Univision’s NY morning news team. “En Pantalla arrives at a great time when Hispanic movie spending and interest for film content is at an all time high. One of the most staggering statistics is Hispanic’s over-indexing in movie going attendance and DVD consumption the last several years,” says Rico. “It also helps that Latin American talent is being recognized internationally. This makes it all the more timely and significant to have a dedicated program hosted by ShowBizCafe.com on television.”
