‘Quinceanera’ back in production

Reality skein returns to Telemundo

Just a month after a surprise raid on its Mexico City-based co-producer’s studio forced a halt in production, NBC U’s Telemundo has restarted its reality show “Quinceanera” in Miami.

NBC U’s Spanish-language web has built a new set, with Miami’s skyline serving as a backdrop, for the remaining three shows. Two-hour finale will be taped live Saturday.

The $3 million program is a Telemundo Network original production, with Mexico’s Nostromo America executive producing.

On Sept. 22, some 40 Mexican police officers and a contingent of TV Azteca lawyers, staff and bodyguards interrupted the taping of the show, sending 14- and 15-year-olds and their minders scurrying out of the way.

Backed by a local court order, Mexican No. 2 net TV Azteca claimed it had “Quinceanera” host Alan Tacher under exclusive contract through 2010, and said it had warned Telemundo in July not to hire him.

Finale will feature guest appearances by Telemundo personalities including Gabriela Spanic, Miguel Varoni, Itati Cantoral, Michel Brown, Ivonne Montero, Sergio Catalan, Lilibeth Morillo and Aylin Mujica, among others.
