Diego Luna, the Mexican actor, director, and producer for film and television will be the 2020 recipient of the prestigious Award for Outstanding Achievement in Hispanic Television presented by Future PLC’s Broadcasting + Cable and Multichannel News magazines during the Hispanic Television Summit. 

The Hispanic Television Summit will be presented as a virtual event for the first time as part of Fall TV 2020 this coming September. The Summit will be presented over a series of four consecutive days, beginning with the Awards Ceremony on Monday, September 21, and running through Thursday, September 24, 2020. Keynote interviews, presentations, and panel discussions occupy the agenda of the remaining three days.

Luna most recently starred in Netflix’s worldwide hit Narcos: Mexico and has appeared in multiple films and telenovelas as a child star and as an adult. Luna has also produced documentaries including the highly-acclaimed César Chávez. Luna will be starring in Pan y Circo, an original series from Amazon Prime Video and La Corriente del Golfo which launches in August.

“Luna’s performances always reflect the Latino voice. We believe that Hispanic TV is where Latino voices matter most, and that’s why Diego Luna is the ideal recipient of this legacy award at the Hispanic Television Summit,” said Joe Schramm, the Summit’s producer for 18 years.

The Award for Outstanding Achievement in Hispanic Television will be presented to Luna by Isaac Lee, from Exile Content. The award is one of a series of awards that will be presented during the Hispanic Television & Video Awards Ceremony.
