“Minuto Para Ganar” Named First Spanish-Language Production Part of the “Made in NY” Initiative

Minuto Para Ganar, the popular Spanish-language version of Minute to Win It airing on American network MundoFox, is currently taping its second season.  The Marco Antonio Regil-hosted game moved to New York City for its second season, and it’s earned significant notoriety for it.  Minuto Para Ganar has been named the first Spanish-language production to be included in New York City’s “Made in NY” initiative.  The program supports and encourages television and film productions to shoot the majority of their projects in New York City.

MundoFox held a special ribbon-cutting ceremony to launch production of the second season of Minuto Para Ganar on March 27th.  The show tapes in ABC Studios, on the set also occupied by Who Wants to be a Millionaire.  In addition to Marco Antonio Regil and other MundoFox executives, Mayor Michael Bloomberg helped celebrate the milestone on behalf of the city.

“We are thrilled to welcome ‘Minuto Para Ganar’ to the City,” said New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. “As the first ‘Made in NY’ Spanish-language production, MundoFox is demonstrating a commitment to bringing new job opportunities to New Yorkers and, like so many others, investing in television in New York ¡Bienvenidos a Nueva York!”

Every episode of Minuto Para Ganar sees contestants play for up to $100,000 by completing ten seemingly simple games using household items.  MundoFox provided us with a sizzle reel showcasing the game’s inclusion into the program.  Take a look below.  Congratulations to everyone there.  They consistently put together a very enjoyable program and, as we repeat often, Marco Antonio Regil is someone who we desperately want to see more of.  He’s one of the best out there.

    Congrats to everyone on the show. What a great way to keep jobs here in the US, especially in television as well.

    BTW, is GSN still on track with the revival of this show?

    • Bobby says:

      Yes, Apollo Anton Ohno is hosting. The only thing I’d want to see is will the show share costs by sharing studios and sets?

      • Andrew L. Budny says:

        Interesting pick for the host. Hopefully he will do better than Guy. He was OK but I will hold judgement until the show airs.

  • James Greek says:

    I hope we see Marco Antonio Regil on US TV!
