Approximately 1 in 6 Americans – 50.5 million – is Latino and they are searching for and consuming content relevant to their interests and experience. A multitude of US Latino focused networks, digital platforms and distribution channels are being expanded and created for this market in Spanish and English.

NBCUniversal and Telemundo, ABC and Univision, Fox and Colombia’s RCN; major networks recognize the opportunities in providing content to the growing U.S. Latino and Hispanic population, including 2nd generation viewers who want content in English and Spanish. The demand for content is as diverse as the viewership, and includes the spectrum of non-fiction programming, from news, to lifestyle programming, to documentary series.

How can you leverage the opportunities available with this new demand for content?   What stories are programmers seeking, and how does your doc fit into the picture?  How can you incorporate these new outlets into your distribution plan?
