 LITERARY CLASSIC 'DON QUIXOTE' TO AIR EXCLUSIVELY ON UNIVISION
 MIAMI, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- As part if its Quincentennial programming, Univision presents "Don Quixote", an extraordinary miniseries based on Miguel de Cervantes' 17th Century masterpiece novel Don Quixote de la Mancha. This breathtaking film will air exclusively on Univision in three parts for three consecutive Sundays: April 12, April 19 and April 26 from 9 to 11 p.m. ET (check local listings).
 Don Quixote has been the subject of many adaptations over the years, but non equal the power and scope of this production. In addition to a magnificent performance by Fernando Rey in the title role of a lifetime, the production features major contributions from scriptwriter and Nobel prize winner Camilo Jose Cela, and from Oscar and Grammy award winner Lalo Schifrin.
 Produced by Television Espanola, Don Quixote brings to life the picaresque adventures of the gaunt heroic knight of La Mancha, his comical squire Sancho Panza and his trusty steed Rocinante.
 This great classic, brought magically and majestically to life in this miniseries, is part of Univision's tribute to the encounter of two worlds and the Hispanic legacy it spawned more than 500 years ago.
 Univision, the nation's leading Spanish-language television network, covers 90 percent of U.S. Hispanic households through satellite-interconnected broadcast and cable affiliates nationwide.
