LOS ANGELES, March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting Monday March 7th, LATV the national Hispanic entertainment network will launch five new series that cover a wide range of genres and topics targeting the growing Latino audience in the United States.

In true LATV form, the network continues to prove just how diverse their Latino audience base is by offering content that highlights everything from the fastest cars on the road to the newest gadgets available. LATV is also offering a fresh new take on popular formats that include a cooking show (El Sazon de la Vida) and two new talk shows (Tu Decides, Mis Doctores).

"Our programming continues to be as diverse as our audience," commented Luca Bentivoglio, COO LATV.  "The one common denominator is that every one of our shows intends to inform, inspire, and entertain the Latino audience.  This isn't a strategy, this is a priority!"

Mis Doctores: A prominent and dynamic group of young doctors tackle medical issues affecting the Latino community.  Each episode undertakes issues ranging from mental and physical health to clinical and surgical subject matter, and how they affect the human relationship.

Tu Decides: A talk-show that pits four well-known personalities from different age groups against one another. The group includes telenovela star Adriana Fonseca, ex-wife of legendary singer Jose Jose, Elena -"Anel"- Norena, ex-lead vocalist of pop-Latino group Flans, Mimi Hernandez, and rounding out the group is up and coming TV personality Elba Jimenez.
