“I’m thrilled to be working with Tr3s in an area I’m so passionate about!” said Mario Lopez. “I’m very excited to be working with Mario and Tr3s on this project. We want fans to get an inside look at a fighter’s life as he negotiates, trains, and mentally prepares to step into the ring on fight night. Golden Boy Promotions is extremely happy be able to showcase some of our best fighters on the new show,” said Oscar De La Hoya.

Executive Producers Mario Lopez and Wilmer Valderrama bring their behind-the-scenes production chops to “The Golden Boys” and season two of “The Ricardo Laguna Project,” respectively. “The Golden Boys,” produced by 51 Minds, is a half hour show that tracks the legendary Oscar De La Hoya as he trains, promotes and mentors three up and coming fighters on the verge of the world stage. The half-hour freshman series “The Ricardo Laguna Project” returns for a second season of more wild and amusing antics from the Mexican-American BMX pro & his bicultural family in Las Vegas. Produced by RelativityREAL, season two will make its debut in fall 2012.

“The Chisme Club” shares witty comedic banter from infamous Latino personalities and stand ups who reveal their favorite and most absurd ‘pop culture’ news. Personalities include the Mob Wives Rene Graziano and Mayte Garcia, as well as “The Latin Divas of Comedy” Sandra Valls and Sara Contreras, “Broads of Broadway” comedian Cristina Galston, Showtime Comedy Special headliner Joey Medina, and comedian Eric Nieves, among others.

Three new realities star acculturated Hispanic Millennials. Under the production of 51 Minds, “Latino Boot Camp” will connect young Latinos to their roots through an eye-opening encounter with their ancestors in Latin America, and in the female-driven competition “From Chongas to Reinas” rough Latinas are transformed into well-mannered queens, with plenty of cattiness and drama in between. The new comedic series “Culture Swap,” produced by RelativityREALL, stars two young adults (one Latino) with very different cultural backgrounds that switch lives for a week of exposure to another world.

After achieving ultimate stardom in Latin America with a booming career in music, film and television, social media magnet Dulce Maria has her eyes set on conquering the US. “The Dulce Maria Show” follows the triple-threat’s departure from her beloved family and fans, to new-found independence, a new language and a new culture in Hollywood. Under the production of Ennovva, the new show is set to premier fall 2012.
The new suspense thriller novela “Ultimo Ano” is set in the world of adolescence, and driven by a conniving foreign exchange student who tries to deceive and manipulate the lives of his new host family and friends. The co-production with MTV Latin America introduces a first-ever initiative uniting network writers and researchers from Population Media Center (PMC) to produce entertainment-education content, where characters will be developed to evolve into role models for the audience, encouraging the adoption of healthier behaviors to benefit individuals and their societies. Series is produced by Argos Productions and set for spring 2013.

Zoë Saldaña, Diego Luna, Demian Bichir, Penélope Cruz and Harmony Santana are  the nominees for Best Latino Actor at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, which will be  held June 3, the MTV, Musica y Mas television channel announced Monday. The bilingual entertainment channel said in a press release that Saldaña was  nominated for her role in the film “Colombiana,” Luna for “Casa de Mi Padre,”  Bichir for “A Better Life,” Cruz for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger  Tides” and Santana for “Gun Hill Road.”

The winner will be announced on Tr3s on June 10 on the rebroadcast subtitled  in Spanish of the 2012 MTV Movie Awards that MTV will broadcast live on June  3. Between now and June 2, viewers will be able to vote online for this year’s  Best Latino Actor at movieawards.tr3s.com. In 2011, film fans selected actress Alexa Vega as Best Latino Actor for her  role in the comedy “From Prada to Nada.” Last year it was Alexys Nycole Sánchez who stole the show at the 2011 MTV  Movie Awards by winning an award for her classic line “I want to get chocolate  wasted” in last year’s comedy “Grown Ups.” The child actress, who acted alongside Hollywood heavyweights Salma Hayek,  Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, was presented the “Best Line From A Movie” award by  Cameron Díaz.
“First of all I want to thank my friends, my family and my fans for voting  for me,” the four-year-old said like a grown up herself. “I want to thank Debbie  my manager for doing all the hard work she has done and most of all I want to  thank God.” In the film, Sánchez plays Becky Feder, the daughter of Salma Hayek’s  character Roxanne Chase-Feder. “I want to thank all the people from “Grown Ups” for letting me in the  movie,” Sánchez added. “You are so fun! And I want to get chocolate wasted!” Meanwhile, Eva Mendes and Saturday Night Live actor Jason Sudeikis kicked off  the show with a short spoof imitating scenes from two major blockbusters: “The  Hangover” and “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.”

Wilmer Valderrama & RelativityREAL Executive Produce new docu-series. 

Tr3s: MTV, Musica y Mas, the bilingual/bicultural entertainment destination for Latinos in the US, announces the premier of the new docu-series The Ricardo Laguna Project under Executive Producers Wilmer Valderrama and RelativityREAL. The new series takes a look inside the outrageously amusing life of bilingual/bicultural BMX star Ricardo Laguna as he attempts to break 3 world records and start his own family business – all while balancing his close knit Latin family and the enticing social scene in Las Vegas. Tr3s will produce eight 30-minute episodes of The Ricardo Laguna Project, which premiers every Wednesday at 9pm (ET), starting March 14th, 2012.

“Ricardo Laguna is a relatable young guy who’s experiencing the same bicultural realities of our audience – striving to stand out, embracing his Hispanic and American ethnicity, conquering new opportunities and keeping his family unit strong,” said Charlie Singer, SVP of Creative & Content for Tr3s. “He is unbelievably passionate about life and will be an incredible role model for our audience.”

“I have a passion for riding and being a part of the community – whether I’m helping kids or building huge dirt jumps at events – and of course I have a lot of fun along the way as it is Vegas, but I’m trying to do it all while building my brand AND in a way that makes my parents proud,” BMX champ Ricardo Laguna. “There aren’t really any Hispanic riders in BMX that give back so I’m hoping I can be a role model to some of the kids out there. All in a day’s work and I can’t wait for the world to see it!”

“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,” commented Valderrama.

Moving from La Paz, Mexico to the states at the age of 13 was a struggle but looking back Ricardo merits his familia for his extraordinary bilingual/bicultural experience. Even after turning pro at 21, Ricardo chose to continue living with his parents. Now at 29, he’s left the nest but didn’t stray too far from home or dinner time with family. Ricardo has been riding for more than a decade and holds multiple titles including the Best Latin-American Dirt Jumper in 2004. Since then, the BMX renaissance man has joined the X Games, competed nationwide and mentored youth across the country – all while keeping a steady (and responsible) presence in the Las Vegas social scene.

The Ricardo Laguna Project is produced by RelativityREAL and Myra Santiago, Director of Production for Tr3s: MTV, Musica y Mas. Wilmer Valderrama and RelativityREAL’s Tom Forman, Brad Bishop and David Brown serve as Executive Producers.
