"El Toque de Aarón"
Warner Bros. Discovery U.S. Hispanic teamed up with GroupM and COCINA Media to bring high-quality, culturally-relevant programming created for Hispanic audiences in the United States. Together, they have joined once again with chef and Executive Producer Aarón Sánchez on "El Toque de Aarón", a new original series following Sánchez and his team as they help Latino restaurants in the Los Angeles area reach new heights.
Kimberly Clark’s VivaÒ Paper Towels Brand is confirmed as an integrated sponsor, with other GroupM clients featured throughout the series. "El Toque de Aarón" is slated to premiere on Monday, April 17 on Discovery Familia, and will also air on sister network Hogar de HGTV.
“Warner Bros. Discovery’s U.S. Hispanic networks continue to be regarded as leaders in the multicultural marketing space,” said David Tardio, Vice President, Integrated Ad Sales and Marketing, Warner Bros. Discovery’s U.S. Hispanic. “When brands look to better target the Latino audience segment, they come to us because of our decades of experience and our trusted insights: we know our audience, their interests, and their passions. In turn, we look for the same authenticity in our partners, and are thrilled for another opportunity to link up with COCINA Media and GroupM on this exciting new series.”
“At GroupM, we are proud of our ability to integrate the brands we serve into culture-defining properties like 'el Sabor de Aarón' while accessing premium talent and partners. To create a more vibrant media marketplace, it is critical that we focus our attention on enhancing media owners and properties that drive positive cultural influence. We are thrilled to be part of the journey to elevate the passions and stories that will truly resonate with consumers.” Gonzalo Del Fa, President GroupM Multicultural.
“We are proud to have the recurring trust and support of some of the world’s most influential partners like GroupM and Warner Bros. Discovery, allowing us to create - and then continue to create - premium content for U.S. Hispanic audiences. This series is particularly close to our hearts, executive produced and starring our company’s co-founder Aarón Sánchez and dedicated to the goal of uplifting Latino businesses,” said Sarah North, Chief Creative Officer, COCINA Media.
In this six-part series, "El Toque de Aarón" showcases Latino restaurants in L.A. with great potential, ready to seize the opportunity to optimize their business – from menu composition and aesthetics to execution and awareness.
