MSNBC & Telemundo to Simulcast Doc Underwater Dreams


LOS ANGELES: As part of a nationwide pro-social campaign, MSNBC and Telemundo are set to simulcast the science documentary Underwater Dreams this Sunday.

The film chronicles the story of four teenage boys, all children of Mexican immigrants, who found success after entering a sophisticated underwater robotics competition, even going up against engineering powerhouse MIT. On July 20, MSNBC and Telemundo will simultaneously air the doc in both English and Spanish at 1 p.m., with mun2 broadcasting the next day at noon.

The feature is a main pillar of NBCUniversal Hispanic Enterprises and Content's Aprender es Triunfar campaign, which is aimed at closing the Latino student achievement gap, especially in education dealing with science, technology, engineering and math. Up to 100 free community screenings of Underwater Dreams will also be shown on AMC theaters across the U.S. throughout the summer and fall.
