Azteca introduced in Mexico City Ximena Sariñana, Héctor Martínez and José Manuel Figueroa as judges of its new show México Tiene Talento, the local version of the show Got Talent, co-produced with format owner FremantleMedia. The show premieres October 19th at 7pm and will air Sunday through Monday on Trece. “For a couple of months we’ve been tweaking our programming grid, emphasizing quality family entertainment Monday through Friday. In this effort of finding better content and exploring different formats from around the world, we met again with FremantleMedia, and determined it’s the ideal moment to bring this project, which is viewed by over 450 million people around the world,” said Alejandro Chávez, Programming director of Azteca. According to Luciano Cardinali, executive producer at FremantleMedia, this partnership between the two production companies, “makes México Tiene Talento an ambitious project that changes a bit what we’ve been doing worldwide. The most important aspect is that talent fits in a show. There are many emotional moments and the judges gave us a lot on the first encounter. It is a pleasure to produce in this country such a big show that is giving us great material.” México Tiene Talento is produced by David Limón of Azteca and Juan Pablo Ybarra of FremantleMedia.
