Broadcast network MundoFox on Oct. 22 will premiere Corazones blindados (Armored Hearts), a fictional action-oriented teleseries following the life of police officers in Bogotá, Colombia.
The 80-episode series, currently airing in Colombia, is one of the “action-packed” series that News Corp.-owned MundoFox promised when it launched earlier this year, seeking to distance itself from traditional telenovelas.
According to RCN, the Colombian TV network where the series originated, Corazones blindados actually received the support of Colombia’s local police, which offered uniforms, police cars, arms training and personal defense courses for the actors. Its central plot is a love story between two cops, Diana (Majida Isa) and Raúl (Andrés Sandoval).
MundoFox, a partnership between Fox International Channels and RCN Television, took to New York on Oct. 18 to tout the premiere of the event with a star-studded presentation. It included the series’ main stars and other celebrities, including Laura Posada, a TV personality, philanthropist and the wife of former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada.
