Telemundo kicked off in Mexico its new original production La Doña (120x60’), starring Aracely Arámbula, David Chocarro, Danna Paola and Rebecca Jones. La Doña is inspired by the classic novel Doña Bárbara, by Rómulo Gallegos, and was written and adapted by José Vicente Spataro, directed by Carlos Villegas, and produced by Mariana Iskandarani and Gabriela Valentan. La Doña is a tale of revenge, ambition and seduction revolving around Altagracia (Arámbula), an elegant, beautiful and successful woman who runs a construction empire and enjoys widespread respect in society. A series of major traumas early in life left their mark on Altagracia and made her the implacable Doña she is today. “Gallegos’ novel has been adapted successfully for film and television before, but what makes this new Telemundo version different is the story, set in modern times. Audiences are increasingly demanding more realism in our telenovelas, and La Doña addresses contemporary issues through believable characters with whom viewers can identify with. Violence against women, corruption in politics and business, and the economic crisis many countries in the region are experiencing are just some of the topics that anchor this story in current times,” commented Luis Silberwasser, president of Telemundo Network. In addition to the lead actors mentioned above, the supporting cast includes Diego Soldano, Rafael Sánchez Navarro, Gabriela Roél, Odiseo Bichir, Fátima Molia, Andrea Martí, Carlos Torres, José María Galeano, Daniela Bascopé, Mauricio Isaac, Rodrigo Murray, María del Carmen Félix, Michelle Olvera, Leo D’luglio and Mario Moran. La Doña is a Telemundo original production made by Argos Television.
