WE tv will follow the lives of Telenovela actresses as part of a new unscripted series, the network said Monday.
The Real Women Of Telenovelas will chronicle a group of beautiful and fierce Latina actresses and actors working on Telenovelas, or short-run Spanish-language soap operas, said network officials. The reality series will be produced by Matador.
“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.”
