Last Autumn, AVGS co-founder and Head of Production, Luis Guizar, received an unexpected phone call from Jada Pinkett Smith and the Facebook TV team. They were planning a secure way to produce a spinoff of their acclaimed Red Table Talk series — this time, spotlighting the Latinx community by featuring Gloria Estefan and her family.

Having served as Lighting Designer for the original season, Luis felt close to the production team, and the story they wanted to tell. His challenge was how to recreate the show’s unique look in a remote environment — turning Gloria’s Miami home into a safe yet visually perfect working set. Six weeks of ingenious location filming later, the result is Red Table Talk: The Estefans, a critically-acclaimed, groundbreaking hit starring three generations of Latinas in candid conversation.
