Well, we all knew it was only a matter of time before the telenovela market and it’s huge industry got involved with a riff on the highly successful “Real Housewives” franchises of Andy Cohen and Bravo TV!
Just announced is that WE tv is developing the unscripted series The Real Women of Telenovelas. Set in Miami and produced by Matador, the show will follow a group of established and up-and-coming actresses and actors working in the genre.
The world of telenovelas has everything we look for in a WE tv show compelling characters, conflict, consequence and comic relief,” said WE tv president Marc Juris. “We could not be more excited about this project and bringing these beautiful women and their stories and highly-charged relationships to WE tv viewers. I think we’ll find the lines on the scripts in these TV dramas sometimes pale in comparison to real life.”
The series will focus on the lives of a mix of high-profile and up-and-coming actresses and actors in the telenovela scene as they navigate this drama-filled world. The high-octane drama onscreen is nothing compared to the real-life drama these people face. These colorful frenemies compete for roles and dates, walk the same red carpets and, of course, fight for the same spotlight. And now they’re ready to take their careers to the next level.
