American Idol is one of the many reality programs on the dial, a lot of which come from the production company Bunim/Murray.

It's behind hits like The Real World, Paris Hilton's The Simple Life and Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and has become the go to hit-maker for the 18 to 34 demographic. Now Bunim/Murray hopes to conquer a new slice of the industry: Hispanic audiences.

Gabriela Cocco- Sanchez, vice president of Bunim/Murray productions' brand new Latin division, joins the show to explain the new initiative.
