Considered one of the most ambitious Spanish language series to ever be produced in Latin America. Hugo Chavez, El Comandante is a fictional drama inspired by the life of the late leader of Venezuela’s Bolivarian revolution – a man of humble origins, who defied all odds to become the most controversial and powerful Latin American leader of his time. Presenting real life events and fictional characters, Hugo Chavez, El Comandante, showcases the fundamental aspects of a man’s life – a childhood guided by the love of a grandmother, conspiracies formed in the military academy, an experience behind bars, lovers and companions, and ambitions, the same ones that led him to rewrite history, ally with the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and defy not only the greatest power in the universe, but also a terrible cancer that led him to his imminent death, just as he was at the peak of his popularity. El Comandante is the story of a man and a country, of a leader who surged from nothing and rose to the greatest heights with enough power to obtain anything he pleased, a revolutionary who had the ability to transform a nation.
