¿Quién Eres Tú, Mun2?

Mun2 wants to be the new home for Latin culture -- without the Spanish

Marchosky uses the '80s TV show Qué Pasa, USA? as an example of something that wasn't necessarily seen as a gold mine in the past. "Twenty years ago many TV producers doubted Qué Pasa, USA?'s relevance, but its success proved them wrong," Marchosky notes. "Mun2's concept is relevant to the U.S. Hispanic society -- I mean, those of us with a Latin background that were raised in the American culture. I think it's a brilliant concept that has to be properly shaped and needs a lot of work, but still, it's a brilliant concept.

"Is the channel more relevant now? To the U.S. audience, definitely," he says, "and not only because it's spoken in English, but because it represents a bilingual culture."
