Their marriage maybe long over, but Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s ¡Q’VIVA The Chosen talent competition is moving forward after Univision and Televisa confirm they are among the multiple networks on board to broadcast the reality show.
XIX Entertainment announced on Wednesday that “Univision in the U.S., Televisa in Mexico, and Caracol TV in Colombia,” are the first three confirmed network homes, out of 21, where ¡Q’VIVA! The Chosen will be shown. The other networks will be announced at a later date.
Lopez and Marc Anthony called it quits July of this year after seven years of marriage. The superstar celebs share 3-year-old twins Max and Emme.
Nevertheless, the show must go on.
Simon Fuller, who along with Lopez and Marc Anthony is producing the show, said in a statement that ¡Q’VIVA! The Chosen is a “growing importance of Latin culture.”
“¡Q’VIVA! The Chosen will be a spectacular showcase of Latin music and performance arts,” Fuller said.
Lopez, Marc Anthony and veteran choreographer Jaime King are scheduled to begin production for the series this month up until January of 2012.
“Very soon the world’s heart will beat to the tune of Latin rhythms and we’re looking forward to experiencing history in the making,” Lopez said in a statement. “It is with great pride that we embark on this amazing and very personal mission to discover and celebrate the most captivating talent the world has ever seen.”
Marc Anthony, who earlier this week twitted multiple photos of himself in Mexico auditioning ¡Q’VIVA! The Chosen prospects, said he is “thrilled” to “open doors for the next generation of Latin superstars” and to have “the beauty of Latin music, artistry, and dance” seen by a mass audience.
