MIAMI – April 2, 2019 – This month, Telemundo’s Dr. Ana Maria Polo celebrates her eighteenth anniversary on U.S. Hispanic television, and announces the return of her primetime edition "Caso Cerrado con la Dra. Ana Maria Polo” (Case Closed with Dr. Ana Maria Polo) on Monday, May 13 at 7pm/6c. With almost two decades on the Telemundo network, the internationally renowned attorney makes history as the only lawyer who has hosted the longest running and leading reality court show in Spanish-language television, featuring legal battles relevant to the Hispanic community. Since its launch in 2001, Dr. Polo has produced over 3,500 programs and resolved more than 7,000 cases. In addition to reaching U.S. homes, the program is also seen in more than 21 countries throughout Latin America, positioning Dr. Polo as one of the most influential and prestigious personalities in Spanish-language television worldwide.
"I am very happy, but above all proud to celebrate my 18th anniversary on Telemundo with a show that has crossed borders and reached different audiences in many countries, not only on television but also digitally through social media," stated Dr. Polo. "This anniversary marks a very important stage for me because it reflects that, even though we are at a time when things are constantly changing, we have managed to keep pace with the present, reinvent ourselves and always remain relevant".
Dr. Ana Maria Polo’s name exemplifies commitment and support for the Hispanic community. Her powerful and distinct personality has also made her a spokesperson and a defendant of important issues affecting the Hispanic community. With more than 20 years of experience as a lawyer, she started her TV career in 2001 on Telemundo’s program “Sala de Parejas” (Couples’ Room), where she soon conquered TV audiences across the country. In 2005, “Sala de Parejas” became “Caso Cerrado con la Dra. Ana Maria Polo” (Case Closed with Dr. Ana Maria Polo), a program that highlights lawsuits and legal situations. The great success garnered by “Caso Cerrado” motivated Telemundo to air the primetime edition entitled “Caso Cerrado Edición Estelar” (Case Closed Primetime Edition) at 7pm EST. Besides the daily editions of “Caso Cerrado,” the show is also seen in over 21 countries throughout Latin America, including Puerto Rico, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay and Colombia, among others.
