Emilio Estefan signs development deal with 20th Century Fox

After a fairly successful run with Univison’s Dale con Ganas, Miami producer Emilio Estefan has now been presented an offer to sign a development deal with 20th Century Fox for a Latin-based drama for TV.

Cuban-born musician/music producer Emilio Estefan has signed a development deal with 20th Century Fox Television. Under the pact, Estefan will shepherd his first drama series for network television. He already is meeting with writers for the project, a Latino-themed series which he will executive produce. The pitch is expected to be taken out to the networks this fall. “Reaching out to all audiences, including the Latino audience, is a critical priority for this studio as we look for that next big international hit,” 20th TV chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman said. “Emilio has a vision for a dramatic series that combines great storytelling with an authenticity in terms of Latino culture that we think every network will want on their schedule.”
