It’s Hispanic Heritage Month and the nation’s top cable providers have partnered with the League of United Latin American Citizens to pay tribute and honor the positive influences of Hispanics in America.
Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, cable will highlight compelling Hispanic figures and events on cable’s On Demand service. The themed programming, part of the Diversity On Demand initiative, is aimed at representing a broad industry effort to provide digital cable viewers access to relevant, inspiring, entertaining and factual Hispanic and Latino movies and television shows. Here’s some of what you can expect this month:
A Storied Past — Gain a new understanding of historical events through real life stories. The dramatic account of Ernesto “Che” Guevara’s inspiring and thrilling youthful motorcycle trek across Latin America traces the origins of his revolutionary spirit.
Dramatic Interpretations – See award-winning novels brought to life on film to interpret history and culture. While characters such as Cesar and Nestor Castillo, brothers and aspiring musicians who flee from Cuba to America in the hopes of reviving their failed musical careers, may be fictional, their stories are reflective of today’s challenges.
Live and Laugh – Kings of Latin Comedy George Lopez, Cheech Marin, Joey Medina, Alex Reymundo and Paul Rodriguez joke about unique cultural oddities, while Carlos Mencia helps break down barriers by addressing ethnic stereotypes, racism and the inability to laugh at oneself.
Hispanic Hearth and Home –Complete the cultural immersion with a close look at food. Simmer awhile with chef Aaron Sanchez, owner of New York’s Centrico Restaurant and Tacombi, who preps dishes with people he admires and takes viewers on visits to iconic spots in the Big Apple.
