mun2, an entertainment cable network geared toward Hispanic millennial adults, will premiere its one-hour "mun2 News Special Hecho en America" on Sept. 28 at 4 p.m. EST/ 2 p.m. CST.

The English-language news special, subtitled in Spanish, showcases of the personal success stories of Latinos who are changing politics, culture and business in the U.S.

From actress Jessica Alba, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, Girls Scouts CEO Anna Maria Chávez, comedian George Lopez, boxer Marlene Esparza, The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) president and CEO Janet Murguía, chef Jose Garces to recording artist Christina Aguilera, this first-person, intimate account of Latinos who are breaking down barriers features over two dozen Hispanic leaders in their own chosen field.

Premiering as part of the network's Hispanic Heritage month programming and presented in tandem with the NCLR's ALMA awards, the series takes a cue from the motto of the new Latino movement – "50 million strong, making it in America."

"Hecho en America" celebrates and allows the inspiring journey of Latinos achieving the American dream to be told by those changing it.

The special is created by Gloria Medel Solomons, executive producer, mun2, producer Ilana Sod, and director of photography and editor Mariano Dabini.

mun2's content can be found across multiple platforms, including its award winning site and VOD. With offices in Los Angeles, Miami and New York, the network is part of Telemundo Media, a division of NBCUniversal.
