Continuing its love affair
with Mexican-American norteno singer Jenni Rivera, Mun2 has announced the
upcoming premiere of I Love Jenni.
The new original reality show will
star the singer and her family as she juggles her career as a performer and
entrepreneur with her full-time job as a newlywed and mother of five.
Expected to premiere in March,
I Love Jenni is a sort of sequel to Jenni Rivera Presents Chiquis and Raq-C,
a reality series starring Rivera's daughter and one of her friends that helped
score strong ratings for the network.
Chiquis and Raq-C was Mun2's highest-rated original reality show in 2010, grabbing nearly 4
million total viewers as part of the "You're On Weekends" block and drawing
222,000 persons 2-plus for its final eposide.
Also, according to Mun2, Chiquis and Raq-C scored over 7 million
page views on mun2.tv and, in the last six months, 1.2 million unique visitors
have requested Jenni Rivera content.
An online teaser for the
upcoming show, whose premiere date has yet to be announced, informs viewers, in
Mun2's traditional Spanglish format, that the "diva is back and this time she's
brought the familia."
it was the case with Chiquis and Raq-C,
I Love Jenni will be executive
produced by Rivera; it will run for 13 weeks and offer an inside look at the
life of the singer, who recently married Esteban Loaiza, a pitcher for Major
League Baseball's Los Angeles Dodgers.
