ABC EXPANDS THE NUMBER OF SERIES DUBBED INTO SPANISH

Series Dubbed into Spanish Include Returning Hits �Desperate Housewives,� �Lost,� �Grey�s Anatomy,� �Dancing with the Stars,� as well as ABC Comedies �George Lopez� and Fall Newcomer �Ugly Betty�

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.

�Increasing the number of shows dubbed into Spanish reflects our commitment to successfully connecting with the millions of Hispanics who watch mostly or only Spanish language television,� said Mr. McPherson. �Offering relatable programming is how ABC continues to be on the forefront in reaching diverse segments of the population. No other English language network serves the Spanish speaking audience the way we do.�

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.

Additional programming may be dubbed in Spanish in the future.
