Along with her, her husband Mauricio Ochmann will appear. Also appearing is their daughter, Kailani.
Eugenio Derbez spoke about the upcoming series, saying, “I’m thrilled to be working with our Lionsgate friends in bringing my reality series to Pantaya and Amazon Prime Video. When they learned that I was planning to take my entire family on a surprise trip to Morocco, they had the crazy idea of documenting our adventures. We have always tried to keep our personal lives private so we were all really nervous about doing this but I think our audience will love it. They will finally know that we are just as crazy and dysfunctional as any family!”
Paul Presburger, the CEO of Pantaya and Pantelion Films added to this, saying, “Eugenio has delivered a string of box office hits for Pantelion Films, and we couldn’t be more excited to have the creative mastermind behind them helming our first original unscripted television series”. Alice Dickens-Koblin, the Lionsgate SVP and Head of Unscripted Programming also chipped in, saying, ” ‘De Viaje Con Los Derbez’ is the perfect example of the synergies we aim to create across the company and our focus on empowering talent to tell their stories through different mediums”.
