Telemundo announced the official cast for the new series, Parientes a la Fuerza (Family by Force), produced by 11:11 Films & TV for Telemundo, which will premiere in late 2021.
The series, created by Sebastián Ortega and written by Rosa Clemente and Raul Prieto, kicked off production this week in Mexico City and will mark the debut of Bárbara de Regil (Rosario Tijeras) on Telemundo as the protagonist of this new romantic and entertaining story. Joining de Regil is a star-studded cast that includes renowned actor Guy Ecker, Michel Duval and Chantal Andere in the antagonist role; with special performances by Carmen Aub and Lisa Owen.
“I am thrilled to join the Telemundo family and to start this new cycle in my life with such a wonderful project as Parientes a la Fuerza,” commented de Regil. “Carmen is a character I love because she has a beautiful vibe, which gave me butterflies the minute I read the script. I am eager to tell this story alongside an amazing cast,” she added.
Set in Los Angeles, the series centers on George Cruz (Ecker), a famous 50-year old Hollywood screenwriter who faces a mid-life crisis in the shadow of his first and one-hit wonder screenplay, his mother’s passing and the betrayal of his wife Leticia (Andere). His frustration, loneliness and feeling of failure, coupled with the need to fulfill his mother’s last wish, drive him to the other side of the U.S. border into Mexico, where he meets Carmen Jurado (de Regil), a beautiful Mexican singer who becomes his muse, his star and his great love. George regains the inspiration he was missing and the happiness that makes him feel alive.
The series is directed by Gustavo Loza, Danny Gavidia and Felipe Aguilar. Marcos Santana, Karen Barroeta, Mariana Iskandarani and Andrea Salas are executive producers for Telemundo Global Studios. Juancho Cardona and Manolo Cardona serve as executive producers for 11:11 Films & TV.
