After 23 years in Univision, producing and directing musical shows, Cisco Suárez, senior VP for Special Events, feels this is a “super cool” period in the company, where technology, social networks and direct feedback from the audience keeps them very motivated. Currently Suárez supervises five projects at the same time: Premios Juventud, Premios Lo Nuestro, La Banda, Latin Grammy and Teletón USA. “Premios Juventud celebrated its 13th anniversary. The way the show is conceived allows it to target all kinds of audiences, from 5 to 90-year-olds. This year for me in particular, is one of the most important. The topic of Throwback Thursday is very cool because we can travel back to the 50s, 60s and have a format that will be balanced enough for all kinds of TV viewers," he expressed. He added that the production involved 300 people and required around 30 cameras, counting the stage and the red carpet. He highlighted that the second edition of La Banda will have an amazing twist for the format: the inclusion of the girls. "This year we are improving technology. I think the combination of what we are doing this year will result in a much superior show than last year's. We have an excellent team. When I see what our people do, they have nothing to envy shows in the general market. We feel super proud."
