Original Superhero Comedy Launches on Univision NOW


Univision Communications Inc. (UCI) has debuted Super X, the latest Univision NOW original series that also premiered simultaneously on Univision Network.

The first episode of the superhero comedy series debuted on the Spanish-language streaming and on-demand subscription service, as well as on Univision Network, this weekend. All 13 episodes of Super X also became available on demand exclusively on Univision NOW. Super X tells the story of Alex, a regular guy who works at a video-game store, lives with his mother and has bad luck with women. Alex spends his time with his two best friends, who incidentally give him the worst advice. Alex’s life changes when he gets struck by lightning and gains the super powers of the hero of the video game he was playing. The series stars Axel Rico, Mauricio Llera, Paco Rueda and Michelle Renaud.

“The premiere of Super X builds on our commitment to making the best programming available everywhere our audience is,” said Eric Ratchman, the executive VP of content distribution at UCI. “As we continue to expand original offerings, Univision NOW gives our audience the most sophisticated experience and the richest content on every screen, as is expected by a digitally savvy community that over-indexes on mobile, digital video and social.”
