Thanks to the success achieved until now by MasterChef (17x120) for Azteca 13, original format from Endemol Shine Group, TV Azteca plans the children's version as one of its big bets for 2016, followed by the third season of México Tiene Talento and the return of La Academia on Saturdays.In an interview with PRODU, Rodrigo Fernández, general director of Azteca 13 and Azteca 7, said the success of MasterChef was unexpected: Today, it is the most successful program on the TV station and that leads us to produce MasterChef Junior for the first quarter of 2016, using the same resources, set, judges and host, but now with children.México Tiene Talento is another of the formats that will be back next year, now with the third season and after, the TV station will bring the second season of MasterChef. Meanwhile, La Academia will be back on Saturdays, in both versions, children´s and adult´s.In dramatics, Fernández announced that the original miniseries Dos Lagos (13x60) will be broadcast mid 2016 by Azteca 7. And he mentioned the purchase of international content like the Globo miniseries Amores Robados (7x60), which will be preceded by ¿Qué Culpa Tiene Fatmagül?: We want to bring to the 9pm schedule the best stories that have been international hits and have done well in other countries.Finally, he clarified that after the change of name that the station went through, it is now TV Azteca again and their signals are now Azteca 7 and Azteca 13 once again.
