MundoFox will premiere “El Factor X” this summer.
FremantleMedia Latin America will produce “El Factor X” for MundoFox. “El Factor X” will feature aspiring singers ages 8 to 15 years old, and include both solo artists and vocal groups.
"With the massive success that The X Factor has had in the U.S. and around the world, we are absolutely delighted to launch the same format with a twist for U.S. Hispanic viewers," Adriana Ibaez, executive vice president of programming for MundoFox, said in a release. "This format is very much aligned with the quality programming we look to provide to our MundoFox viewers."
This move is not unprecedented. “El Factor X” will join NBCUniversal’s Telemundo’s “La Voz Kids,” which is a Spanish-language version of “The Voice” for children.
Another show called “El Factor X,” a Columbian version of the original “X Factor,” also ran from 2005-2001 on RCN TV. It was created by Simon Cowell and presented by Andrea Serna.
