Telemundo’s bilingual channel, mun2 (moon-dos), will premiere its new reality series, “I Love Jenni”, starring Latin superstar Jenni Rivera, Saturday, March 5, at 2:00pm PT/ET.
In the first episode, Jenni faces the pressure to pick between kids and career; Chiquis wants to get Jacqui to let loose on her 21st birthday, but Jacqui’s baby is turning one at the same family party; Michael helps Chiquis move the office…for a price; and an acting coach is caught off guard when Jenni channels her inner ‘chola’ for a part in an Edward James Olmos movie.

In many ways, the family faces the same choices as other American families – home schooling or regular school? Whether it’s telling off her son’s teacher for making him cry, or showing her softer side as her teenage daughter Jenicka melts her heart when she asks to stay in school versus home schooling, Jenni shows her many sides in this hilarious reality show.
You know you’re in for a fun ride when the mama sends her kids off for the day with this message: “Be good, don’t go get pregnant.”

“I Love Jenni” is a spin-off of last year’s “Jenni Rivera Presents Chiquis and Raq-C” on which Rivera partnered with mun2 in 2010 as co-executive producer.
The show scored record ratings for the channel, and established a Rivera franchise for mun2. “Jenni Rivera Presents Chiquis and Raq-C” is available on DVD exclusively at Target starting Feb. 20, and is available for pre-order now.
“As mun2 continues to celebrate our uniquely American stories, we couldn’t be prouder to showcase Jenni Rivera’s dynamic life,” said Flavio Morales, SVP, Programming and Production for mun2.
“Thousands of people around the world have fallen in love with Jenni Rivera and we know you will too.”
“As Producer of our last show on mun2, it was gratifying to see that viewers tuned in,” said Jenni Rivera. “In season two, “I Love Jenni” turns the focus on my complicated career and family, and how we live in both worlds. Fans will get a behind the scenes look at mi vida loca, and all the different personalities in the Rivera family. This is going to be one fun ride.”
Jenni Rivera is a prominent female recording artist in regional Mexican music.
