Q'VIVA! THE CHOSEN, the first-of-its-kind docu-journey series showcasing Latin music and dance, and featuring entertainment icon Jennifer Lopez, international music star Marc Anthony and world-renowned concert director Jamie King, will premiere Saturday, March 3 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, and will continue with two-hour episodes for five weeks until its grand finale Saturday, April 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

In Q'VIVA! THE CHOSEN, Lopez, Anthony and King will travel through 20 countries to find and showcase the most outstanding Latin singers, dancers, musicians and other amazing performers. The transcontinental journey, which includes stops in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Panama, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, Venezuela and the United States will also feature the incredible stories and personal journeys of the performers they discover.

After travelling the globe, and reviewing talent through the BlackBerry(R) PlayBook(TM) tablet, Lopez, Anthony and King will bring the chosen ones to the U.S. to prepare for what is sure to be the most important performance of their lives in a spectacular show that will be the greatest celebration of Latin music and performance arts ever produced.

"Q'VIVA is a passion project on so many levels," said Lopez. "It's really our dream to see it come together. This is about creating a live visual experience about Latin culture, rhythm and dance. I believe that people will be so enlightened, so enriched by this experience."

"I am thrilled about our new association with FOX and to have their support in introducing Q'VIVA to a global audience," Anthony added.

"The beauty of Q'VIVA is that talent and artistry transcend language," King remarked. "We've found some of the most captivating performers from all over the region and just as I've experienced, despite not speaking Spanish or Portuguese, their stories will resonate with everyone."

"Q'VIVA is a celebration of the Americas, the diversity, the optimism and the extraordinary richness of the culture," executive producer Simon Fuller noted. "It's an incredibly ambitious and challenging undertaking. Searching out exceptional talent from every country in the region took months of planning and preparation. Every time I have travelled in the region, I have been blown away by its beauty and the potential of the people. Music and dance runs through the veins of everyone. Q'VIVA will reveal to the world just how much exquisite and pure talent exists in every corner of every country."

Previously announced sponsors include global wireless leader BlackBerry(R), American Airlines, founding member of the oneworld(R) alliance, and Kohl's Department Stores.
