SpanishÂ duo Xtreme is set to debut their new reality show “Xtreme: On The Verge” on mun2 on May 7th, 2009. The titleÂ came aboutÂ because of the premise that the group is on the verge of a commercial breakthrough. “These guys, being from the Bronx, being bachateros with a hip, pop vibe, are definitely what mun2 is about,” mun2 programing vice president Flavio Morales said. Mun2 considered several acts for the series, ranging from tropical to regional Mexican performers. Xtreme’s willingness to allow the channel unfettered access gave it an edge over other acts. In addition, the prospect of shooting the show in New York was a plus for the channel, which has been focused on Miami and the West Coast. “A lot of the content has to do with the working of their album,” Morales said. “In the first episode, for example, we get a very realistic understanding of how royalties work. So, it really is a deep dive into what these artists are going through.”
Fans also can watch the show online at holamun2.com, where Danny D, Styles; their manager, Ben DeJesus; and Danny D’s mother, Gladys Bryan, will participate in online discussions.
