On May 15, Azteca America, launches El Pelado De La Noche, a bi-weekly, late night talk show mixing stand-up comedy sketches, music and interviews to deliver Azteca's own version of Letterman meets Saturday Night Live through a unique Latino lens.
The show is hosted and produced by Sergio Bruna. Bruna, born in Madrid, Spain, arrived in Mexico on his own, at the age of 15, looking for his father, and this is when his life adventure begins. As an immigrant himself, he shares a lot of the same life experiences as that of his audience.
The Spaniard's use of Mexican slang comes from living in Mexico for many years and being surrounded by Mexican comedians Enrique Navarro and Eleazar Del Valle (Trapicio), his side-kicks in the show. The show is produced in the U.S. with a diverse cast from Mexico, Central America, Spain, Peru, Australia, Russia and the U.S.
"We are going to connect with our audience in a way that no other show has been able to do, not yet,"said Bruna. ÔÇ×We are delighted to bring innovative programming such as El Pelado De La Noche, into U.S. Hispanic homes,ÔÇ? said Marlene Braga, Vice President of Programming for Azteca America.
El Pelado De La Noche will air on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:00 PM EDT/9:00 PM CDT as part of Azteca America's new primetime line-up.
