MIAMI. March 27, 2017 – At the 2017 edition of MIPTV, taking place in Cannes, France from April 3 to 6, Telemundo Internacional presents its catalog, highlighting eight of its newest titles, amongst these, the highly anticipated series “Guerra de Idolos (Price of Fame)" (75 x 1 Hr), Telemundo’s first musical drama, which is scheduled to have its worldwide premiere soon on Telemundo in the United States.
In addition to "Guerra de Idolos", Telemundo Internacional presents the Super Series "El Chema (Chema)" (78 x 1 Hr), the modern drama "La Doña (Lady Altagracia)" (120 x 1 Hr), the romantic comedy "La Fan (The Fan)" (120 x 1 Hr), the series “El Comandante" (60 x 1 Hr) and the Chilean formats "Amanda" (70 x 1 Hr), "Ámbar" (67 x 1 Hr), “El Camionero" (77 x 1 Hr) and "Esa No Soy Yo (That's Not Me)" (75 x 1 Hr).
“Guerra de Idolos” is an electrifying story of love, music and battles, which follows the journey of famous composer and producer Mateo Solar as he investigates the disappearance of his brother Julio Cesar Solar - the musical star of the moment, and he encounters a dark network of mafias linked to the music business. Along the way, Mateo meets aspiring singer Manara, the half-sister of the man who becomes his greatest adversary. Falling in love with her will not keep him from unleashing a fierce war against his powerful enemies.
"El Chema" is a spin-off of "El Señor de los Cielos (The Lord of the Skies)" which shares the story of Jose Maria "Chema" Venegas’ origins and his rise in the drug trafficking scene, as he fights to have control of the business of his greatest rival, Aurelio Casillas. Since its debut in the United States, this Super Series has led Spanish-language television ratings. Mauricio Ochmann, Mariana Seoane and Itatí Cantoral are part of the leading cast of this Telemundo production filmed by Argos Televisión.
Another top classic drama offer for this market is "La Doña", starring Aracely Arámbula, based on the popular novel by Rómulo Gallegos "Doña Bárbara". This Telemundo production filmed by Argos Televisión is a story of revenge, betrayal, redemption and love, that tells how Altagracia, a woman who lost her parents as the result of a tragic accident and suffered abuse at a very young age, sets her sights on paying back the rich perverts who ruined her innocence. Its premiere episode was the most watched debut in its timeslot since 2008.
"La Fan" is Telemundo’s comedy drama series, which follows the adventures of Valentina Perez (Angelica Vale), an amusing and kind-hearted woman of humble means, who proudly serves as President of the Lucas Duarte (Juan Pablo Espinosa) Fan Club. A twist of fate will place Vale in the path of this actor, her idol. Although at first he does not pay much attention to her, in the end he will realize she’s the woman he can’t live without.
"El Comandante", produced by Sony Pictures Television, is a fictional drama inspired by the life of Venezuela’s late president, Hugo Chavez; it follows his rise to becoming Latin America’s most powerful and controversial revolutionary leader. This series, starring Andrés Parra, Gabriela Vergara, Stephanie Cayo and Julián Román, combines facts with fiction.
Additionally, Telemundo Internacional presents two Mega Chile formats: "Amanda", which tells the story of Amanda Solis, a nurse hired to work on the Santa Cruz family estate, who quickly earns the trust and affection of the family without anyone suspecting nor imagining her true intentions— to do justice against those who caused her great pain many years ago; and "Ambar", which addresses the relationship between Matilde - Ambar's single mother - and Dany, the simple, fun and fatherly local school bus driver who transports the young girl.
From TVN Chile, Telemundo Internacional highlights "Esa No Soy Yo", a suspense thriller that tells the story of Judith, a woman posing as her murdered twin sister Anahí in order to do justice. But in doing so, Judith enters a confusing and painful labyrinth, as she discovers that her sister not only led a turbulent life unknown to her, but also made many enemies – any of which could be her murderer. "El Camionero" is the story of a father who will do everything in his power to find his daughter, whose existence was unknown to him until her mother -who put her up for adoption- dies. This man will arrive at the home of his daughter's adoptive family and not only form a beautiful relationship with the young girl; he’ll also build a special bond with the woman who has raised her.
Telemundo Internacional will meet guests at the NBCUniversal International Stand P4.C14 of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France, from April 3 to 6.
