BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Estrella Media, a leading vertically integrated, multi-platform, Spanish-language media company, announced today that beloved, iconic Mexican actress Angélica Vale is joining the EstrellaTV network as host of the new original dating series La Máscara Del Amor (The Mask of Love). The series is currently in production at Estrella Studios in Burbank, CA.
“I’m excited to join the EstrellaTV team in hosting this unique and fun dating show La Máscara Del Amor,” Vale said. “Many of my single friends say how hard it is to meet someone. This series is a new twist on how people make personal love connections beyond typical first date pleasantries. On this show, our contestants will have the opportunity to participate in games and situations that allow them to get to know someone before seeing who is behind the mask. I’m excited to host this unique show and hopefully help these singles make a real love connection.”
The 44-episode initial run will be produced by Estrella Media and Alton River Media. La Máscara del Amor is an original dating game centered on a single man or woman being wooed through games and challenges by five masked suitors. The contestants move through the challenges with Vale serving as both host and confidant. At the end, it is ultimately up to the main contestant to decide between love or the cash prize at the end of each episode.
The show is currently in production under COVID-19 protocols at Estrella Studios in Burbank, CA. The show is scheduled to air on EstrellaTV starting May 27, 2021.
