MTV, Música y Más, the bilingual/bicultural cable network boost its original programming slate in 201 that include collaborations with Jennifer Lopez and Wilmer Valderrama.

New content in development includes the aspirational series Amigas, Inc. under executive producer Jennifer Lopez through her Nuyorican Productions.

Amigas Inc. chronicles the lives of four entrepreneurial Miami teens who pool their creative talents as singers, graphic artists, deejays and choreographers to launch a party-planning business to throw teenage girls their dream Quinceañera—the Latin cultural equivalent to a “Sweet Sixteen” celebration.  The business becomes such a success that soon the four teens find themselves with the hottest party-planning business in Miami.

Another original program is a docu-series starring Mexican-American BMX champ Ricardo Laguna, a thriving Hispanic millennial discovered by executive producer Wilmer Valderrama.

“When I met Ricardo, I immediately discovered a disarming, charming and inspiring young man with a vision larger than even his whole family expected. I related to him on so many levels. Ricardo and his family remind me and all of us the reason why we move away from our countries and come to America to embark in the search of the American dream,” said Wilmer Valderrama.
