Ford flex has this multi-platform miniseries, Amores de Luna, centered around Ford’s new SUV the Flex.
The miniseries airs both on Telemundo affiliates in Miami, Los Angeles and New York after the 11pm newscast and also streams online at AmoresDeLuna.com
The digital media team at NBC6/T51 created the website and the miniseries was produced by Telemundo’s own production facility in Miami.
Before concluding viewers will be able to go online and vote for one of two endings of the series and enter sweepstakes to meet the cast in Miami.

NBC6’s digital team also works on the rather nice Autocast
