Time Warner Cable’s new Deportes channel will provide Spanish language coverage of sports with a focus on interacting with viewers.

Chosen for their deeply moving journeys through the sport, other soccer players profiled for the series include La Liga’s Andres Guardado, Argentinian Jorge Damián Zamogilny, and the now retired great, Ramón Morales. The show will air weekly with its first season bringing sports fans more than thirty sit-down interviews conducted by the network’s Elmur Souza and shot on-location throughout Mexico.
