Carnival Corp. teamed up with Univision Communications Inc. to develop the original O·C·E·A·N primetime series.
The new primetime show, dubbed "La Gran Sorpresa," will air on Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT / 7 p.m. CT starting Jan. 7, 2018, on Univision (US). The new series will use travel to reunite families as they overcome hardships created by illness, separation and other challenges, the company said Dec. 18.
Carnival is a leisure travel company with a portfolio of 10 brands that include nine of the world's leading cruise lines. The company currently produces three other travel series that appear weekends on Walt Disney Co.'s ABC (US) and Comcast Corp.'s NBC (US) stations.
Earlier in the fall, the company announced it had created OceanView, a free over-the-top streaming channel, featuring a slate of more than 100 Ocean Original episodes, as well as two new direct-to-digital streaming original series, "GO" and "Local Eyes."
