Network Celebrates Production Kick-off with Mayor Bloomberg and the City of New York’s “Made in NY” Initiative
NEW YORK, NY – After a successful city-wide search for new contestants, MundoFox today announced that production of the anticipated second season of hit game show Minuto Para Ganar has begun in New York City.
MundoFox hosted a special ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday at the show’s studio set located at ABC Studios (320 West 66th Street). The exclusive event included special appearances by the show’s host Marco Antonio Regil as well as Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg to help celebrate the milestone on behalf of both the network and the City of New York.
Making history, Minuto Para Ganar is the first Spanish-language production to be a part of the City’s “Made in NY” initiative, which supports and encourages television and film productions that shoot the majority of their projects in New York City. The program is run through the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment. Minuto Para Ganar will feature the “Made in NY” logo in its credits and be part of the “Made in NY” Marketing Credit, which provides qualified productions with free, co-branded advertising in City subways and bus shelters.
“We are thrilled to welcome ‘Minuto Para Ganar’ to the City,” said New York City Mayor Bloomberg. “As the first ‘Made in NY’ Spanish-language production, MundoFox is demonstrating a commitment to bringing new job opportunities to New Yorkers and, like so many others, investing in television in New York ¡Bienvenidos a Nueva York!”
Produced by Shine Latino, the second season of Minuto Para Ganar will feature a new round of contestants – each vying for a chance to win up to $100,000 in a series of ten different challenges with increasing levels of difficulty.
