As announced at the NATPE Market & Conference earlier this year, Telemundo and Spain's Reset TV partnered to jointly own, develop, produce and distribute this13-episode, two-hour reality series based on an original concept from Reset TV founders Toni Cruz and José Maria Mainat, the creators of popular entertainment formats such as Cronicas Marcianas (Martian Chronicles), Mira Quien Baila (Look Who's Dancing) and Operacion Triunfo (Star Academy), among others.
"We are delighted to kick-off the casting process for El Artista," said Toni Cruz, Managing Director and Executive Producer of Reset TV Corp. "Our goal is to produce an innovative concept of talent reality competition that would contribute to bring a different way of watching television in Spanish-language moving forward. To be the ultimate Artist, it takes more than great singing ability or dance skills. We are looking for a performer with a full range of ability, star quality, appeal and showmanship".
