¡Q’Viva! Lands at FOX


LOS ANGELES: The Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony competition series ¡Q’Viva! The Chosen, which showcases Latin music and dance, has scored a slot on FOX, to launch on March 3.

The series features Lopez, Anthony and world-renowned concert director Jamie King as they travel North, South and Central America in search of undiscovered Latin performers. The competition series recently premiered on Univision, but FOX will air an English-language version of the show.

Q’Viva is a passion project on so many levels,” said Lopez. “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.”

“I am thrilled about our new association with FOX and to have their support in introducing Q’Viva to a global audience,” Anthony added.

“The beauty of Q’Viva is that talent and artistry transcend language,” King remarked. “We’ve found some of the most captivating performers from all over the region and just as I’ve experienced, despite not speaking Spanish or Portuguese, their stories will resonate with everyone.”

Q’Viva is a celebration of the Americas, the diversity, the optimism and the extraordinary richness of the culture,” executive producer Simon Fuller remarked. “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 travelled 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.”
