LOS ANGELES, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Latin Hollywood Films, a full-service production company and creator of hit shows like Showtime Networks' "Kiki Melendez Hot Tamales Live," will be producing 13 one-hour episodes of the new series "Kiki Mobile" for A+E Networks' lifestyle network FYI this fall. Premiering during Hispanic Heritage Month, "Kiki Mobile" will debut Sunday, September 17 at 12pm ET and new one-hour episodes will air weekly nationwide.
"Kiki Mobile" will bring the Hollywood studio to fans and viewers with a mobile talk show operating out of a custom designed RV. The RV will be outfitted as a studio and travel around California to cover events like film premieres, award shows, concerts, conduct one-on-one interviews and more.
"This is my ultimate dream gig, to create a launching pad for multi-cultural talent in America. This show will be all about discovering new faces, while celebrating those already embraced in Hollywood," said Melendez.
Melendez has successfully proven herself on both English and Spanish language television networks. In Spanish television, Kiki hosted one of the first bilingual shows in the U.S., "Kiki Desde Hollywood," which became the #1 entertainment show for Galavision National Cable Network. Her next project, "Kiki Melendez Hot Tamales Live" on Showtime was a bonafide hit and aired from 2009-2011. Her docu-comedy A Journey of A Female Comic enjoyed a theatrical release through AMC Theaters' independent program and was Oscar qualified in 2015.
