The New Series Will Closely Follow the Winner of la La Casa de los Famosos México in the Day-To-Day Life After Winning the Competition
ViX, the world’s leading Spanish-language streaming service, announced today that it will soon premiere Wendy: Perdida, pero famosa (Wendy: Lost But Famous), a new reality series that will closely follow Wendy Guevara, the winner of La Casa de los Famosos México, on the service’s premium plan and will be available in the U.S., Mexico and most Spanish-speaking countries of Latin America. The original series will show the details of the life of the influencer who positioned herself as the audience’s favorite after remaining 71 days in the competition.
Wendy, who won the hit show with more than 18 million votes, made history as the first transgender woman to win a reality show in Mexico, shedding light on the prejudice and discrimination faced by the LGBTQI+ community.
Produced by EndemolShine Boomdog, the show Wendy: Perdida, pero famosa will feature how Wendy lives her new reality and discovers the impact of her participation in the hit show. In addition, she will share her beginnings and her relationship with her closest circle, including her family and the team that won the audience’s sympathy, the “team infierno.”
“Wendy Guevara’s participation in La casa de los famosos México generated a movement that transcended the screen, managing to connect the public in a unique way on an international level. The show broke records and became a phenomenon never seen before on multiple platforms thanks to the talent and charisma of participants like her. At ViX, we continue to generate authentic content to strengthen the connection we have with our growing and diverse audience and Wendy’s new show is an example of our commitment,” said Augusto Rovegno, SVP of Content ViX at TelevisaUnivision.
“Wendy is a fascinating, charming character, full of surprises. With Wendy: Perdida Pero Famosa we will follow Wendy’s incredible journey after winning the La casa de los famosos México, after 71 days of confinement, giving our audience the opportunity to continue witnessing, from up close and in a very intimate way, this wonderful story with this marvelous character. We want to reiterate our gratitude to our partners and friends at ViX for their trust in working with us on this beautiful project and thank Wendy for her enormous willingness and commitment,” said Frank Scheuermann, SVP and Head of Unscripted, EndemolShine Boomdog.
