Dos y Dos is a program for preschoolers that is recorded in Spanish with several words and phrases spoken in English, enabling 2 to 5 year-olds to be entertained while they learn both languages. The premise of each episode revolves around the solution of "the riddle of the day". Combining singing and dancing, the characters Sofia, Fernando, Adriana and Andrés find five giant puzzle pieces that help solve the puzzle, revealing the topic or theme of the show for that day.

"Dos y Dos uses fundamental educational concepts for the development of young children," said the President of the Company, Everett Hernández. "Cultivating the imagination of children is important for the creative team and each episode reflects the creativity found on each and every young person."

"We are excited to work with such a high quality show for kids," said Hugo Rose, CEO of Televix Entertainment.

Dos y Dos premiered on television in early October 2009 on the LATV network. In May 2010, the series debuted on Telemundo in Puerto Rico, and in October 2010 it was scheduled to begin airing in the US through channel Sorpresa! The series has also been negotiated to be broadcast in several countries, including Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia.

The 60-member team behind the creation of Dos y Dos includes television executives, educational consultants and theater professionals. Each episode of the series is recorded at the KPBS studios in San Diego, California, and supervised by translators from Colombia, Mexico and Los Angeles.
