The project gave rise to the “Discovering Talents” TV show, which aired two Wednesdays per month on CCTV between 2003 and 2008. The idea for the arose following the success of "Resgatando Talentos," and was conceived as a way to expose those talents to a broader audience and to give them the opportunity to develop their amazing work and career in the USA. The program was made possible by the fantastic cable network In Cambridge. It was produced and promoted by Danuza Aquino and Cristina Capobianco in collaboration with Carl-Fredrik Westin, Sonia Chimentao and Marcio Roberto. Many guests on the show were able to move on to successful careers in Boston or other areas of the United States and Brazil.
