ABC, the first English language broadcast network to provide all regular primetime entertainment programming in Spanish via a combination of closed-captioning and dubbing, has increased the number of programs dubbed into Spanish, Stephen McPherson, president, ABC Entertainment has announced. Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Lost, Dancing with the Stars, George Lopez and Latino television phenomenon Ugly Betty will be dubbed into Spanish, with the remainder of the network’s regular primetime entertainment lineup available with Spanish language subtitles. In addition, select specials will also be dubbed into Spanish.
Spanish subtitled versions of the shows will be found on Closed Caption 2 channel (CC2), and viewers will be able to access the programs dubbed in Spanish via the SAP (Second Audio Program) option on their televisions. ABC was the first English language broadcast network to make such a large portion of its programming available in Spanish.
We will be back later if any other ABC news occurs at the press tour.
