'Q'Viva': Jennifer Lopez Talent Competition Heads To Fox
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's "Q'Viva! The Chosen" is heading to Fox.
"'Q'Viva' is a passion project on so many levels," Lopez said in a statement. "It's really our dream to see it come together. This is about creating a live visual experience about Latin culture, rhythm and dance. I believe that people will be so enlightened, so enriched by this experience."
The Latin American-based show recently debuted on Univision, but an English-language version will debut on Fox on Sat. March 3. The show will air in two-hour installments with its finale scheduled for April 7. Univision nabbed the reality show back in October.
In the reality show competition, Lopez, Anthony and concert director Jamie King travel to 20 countries in search of the best Latin performers.
EW reports Fox landed the project thanks to its deal with Lopez for "American Idol." The judges frequently speak in English, but when Spanish or Portuguese is used, Fox will add subtitles. Lopez and Anthony announced their separation and plans to divorce in July, but said working together was been "great."
"'Q'Viva' a celebration of the Americas, the diversity, the optimism and the extraordinary richness of the culture,” Simon Fuller, executive producer of 'Q'Viva,' said in a statement. "It's an incredibly ambitious and challenging undertaking. Searching out exceptional talent from every country in the region took months of planning and preparation. Every time I have traveled in the region, I have been blown away by its beauty and the potential of the people. Music and dance runs through the veins of everyone. 'Q'Viva' will reveal to the world just how much exquisite and pure talent exists in every corner of every country."
