In partnership with Fremantle, the global producers of hit formats Idols & Got Talent, EstrellaTV is launching the exclusive and original Spanish-language version of “Family Feud” for Hispanic audiences in the U.S. on February 2019.
Hernandez will host the Spanish language version of one of the most successful game shows of all time, “Family Feud.” Every weeknight two families face off trying to guess the best answer to the famous “Survey Says” question.

We are certain this show will resonate with Hispanic audiences in the U.S. and that it will be as entertaining and successful as its current English-language counterpart hosted by Steve Harvey,” stated Lenard Liberman, CEO, LBI Media, Inc., parent company to the EstrellaTV Network.
