Discovery en Español addresses issues of concern to U.S. Hispanics in the weeks before the Presidential Elections in two new original productions

Miami, Florida, October 23, 2012 – With the presidential elections around the corner, Discovery en Español is launching a range of programs focusing on key issues of concern for the U.S. Hispanic community, including immigration and unemployment. The programming includes two new original documentaries: “Caras del odio,” which examines hate crimes against Hispanics; and “Desamparados,” a look at Hispanic families struggling to survive in difficult economic circumstances. 

“As part of our commitment to our audience, we feel a responsibility during this pre-election period to offer unique and quality content that entertains while informing our viewers about current affairs,” said Ivan Bargueiras, General Manager, Discovery U.S. Hispanic. 

To explore the controversial topic of immigration, Discovery en Español will premiere the original production “Caras del odio” on October 28 at 9 PM E/P. The documentary analyzes two notorious hate crimes: the death of Mexican immigrant Luis Ramírez after a fight with a group of high school students in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania, in 2008; and the case of Juan Varela, a U.S. citizen and fifth-generation Hispanic murdered by a neighbor in 2010 after an argument over illegal immigration. Two other original productions will air the same day: “Objetivo el norte” (10 PM E/P), a documentary that examines all sides of the immigration debate; and “La ruta de la muerte” (11 PM E/P), which follows a group of migrants on their journey to the United States as they try to avoid violence from drug cartels and other dangers. 


“Desamparados,” another original production, premieres on Discovery en Español on November 4 at 9 PM/EP. This documentary chronicles the daily lives of Hispanic families who have lost their homes and their jobs in the economic crisis and have been reduced to living in shelters, parks and even their cars. The same day’s lineup also includes “Deportados” (10 PM E/P), in which the network takes its cameras inside the largest detention center in the United States to capture the personal stories of immigrants about to be expelled from the country; and “Viviendo en la sombra” (11 PM E/P), real-life profiles of illegal immigrants as they struggle to raise their children, earn a living and dream of a better future.
