(September 28, 2006 - Los Angeles, CA) Recognizing the need for multi-lingual programming, “Extra” is the first entertainment newsmagazine show to “hablar español” by launching “Extra en Español” on ExtraTV.com. Created by Extra producers Omar Lugones and Tony Carrasco, “Extra” en Español” features daily original content, streaming video and exclusive interviews with some of today's hottest stars – all en español. “Extra” Senior Executive Producer Lisa Gregorisch-Dempsey will oversee the project. Dempsey says, “Latinos are the fastest growing segment of the population and a major part of our nightly audience. This is the perfect extension of the ‘Extra’ brand and a way to tap into a market not being serviced by the entertainment news genre.” Since its inception, “Extra en Español” has featured huge stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz, Oscar de la Hoya, George Lopez, Shakira and Marc Anthony. The biggest names in the Latino community come to “Extra en Español” with all the latest breaking news. “Extra” is a Time Telepictures Television production and is distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. For more information on the show, please visit “Extra” at www.extratv.com or AOL Keyword “Extra."
