Sonoro and iHeartMedia have announced a new deal to co-produce a slate of podcasts for My Cultura, iHeartMedia’s podcast network for Latinx voices and creators.
First in the slate will be “Princess of South Beach,” a 36-part modern audio telenovela series available in both English and Spanish, making it widely available to bicultural and bilingual listeners around the world. The first three episodes will debut on Monday, October 4th with new episodes dropping every Monday, Wednesday and Friday following the launch. Listeners can hear the “Princess of South Beach” trailer today on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are heard.
The English-language series is voiced by both well-known and new voices alike, including:
● Rachel Zegler (West Side Story, Snow White) as twins María and Gloria ● Gina Torres (Suits, Pearson) as Luisa Calderón ● Raul Esparza (Law & Order: SVU) as Esteban Calderón ● Danny Pino (Law & Order: SVU, Mayans M.C.) as Nacho Santana ● Andy Bustillos (Wedding Season, Most likely to Murder) as Raul Santana ● Ivonne Coll (Jane the Virgin, Switched at Birth, Teen Wolf) as Hermana Claudia ● X Mayo (comedian and Emmy-nominated writer for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah) as Estrella
Sheryl Rubio (La Casa De Las Flores) will portray twins María del Carmen and Gloria Calderón in the Spanish-language cast. More details on full casts and characters can be found at www.princessofsouthbeach.com.
“The My Cultura podcast network is about elevating Latinx creators and sharing our ‘voces’ in English, Spanish and Spanglish,” said Gisselle Bances, Head of iHeartMedia’s My Cultura. “We are excited to co-produce a series with Sonoro that connects our U.S. Latinx community with a beloved genre like the telenovela that many of us grew up enjoying with our families. Our goal is to create a multi-generational audio experience while paying homage to our ‘cultura.’”
Sonoro’s new slate with My Cultura will include six additional scripted and unscripted audio-first franchises, including “The Super Secret Bestie Club,” a show about love and friendships, and “Morenita,” a show celebrating Afro-Latinidad, both set to launch later this year.
