Latin Heat Digital Magazine Explores the Business of Latinos in Entertainment
2013 retrospective and look into what Hollywood holds for Latinos in 2014
Latin Heat (www.latinheat.com), the trade publication which has covered Latinos in Hollywood since 1992, recently announced the release of the first of four digital magazines scheduled for 2014, which will focus on “The Business of Latinos in Entertainment”. The publication will be distributed digitally on January 9, 2014 to its online subscriber base of 5,000 and through Latin Heat’s social media partner Hispanicize, the Hispanic PR Blog and the Hispanicize event (http://www.hispanicizeevent.com).
The Latin Heat digital magazine will feature the brightest voices in entertainment journalism as they take a look back at the Latino talent, issues and projects that impacted Hollywood in 2013; covering the personalities, projects, events and media moves, with a look forward to what’s in store for 2014. In spite of the $1.2 trillion dollar buying power of U.S. Latinos, and being the number one film going audience, representation of Latinos on the screen and in the executive suites is still slow in coming.
Topics to be covered include:
— Is Eugenio Derbez’s 2013 film Instructions Not Included a game changer with it’s $10 million opening weekend box office take (to date $44 million domestically and $85.5 million internationally)?
— The LatPak© Reveal
— TOP 10 List of Actors, Films, Writers, Director, Executives, and the Up & Coming Talents.
— Impactful Events of 2013 and the one to Look Forward to in 2014
— New TV Networks, New Mid-Season TV shows, and The New Talent

The digital magazine will be a full color, interactive and information packed look at the landscape of Latinos in entertainment, with original content not readily found all in one publication.
“We are excited to continue our unique and important coverage of the Latino entertainment professional and the issues that affect them, some of which are ignored in other trades,” said Publisher Bel Hernandez. “We have been there to provide coverage and give voice to them since 1992.”
