Lat Am nets pick up Globo telenovelas
Globo’s Orphans of a Nation has gone to Imagen Televisión and Teledoce
Latin American broadcasters Teledoce, Imagen Televisión, Teletica and TVN have picked up telenovelas from Brazilian media giant Globo.
Teledoce in Uruguay has acquired Orphans of a Nation which tells the story of a young Syrian woman who marries a powerful sheik then flees to a distant land to start a new life. It replaces previous Globo series A Second Chance in Teledoce’s schedule.
The broadcaster has also picked up The Good Side of Life, written by Walcyr Carrasco, which follows a man searching for his origins who ends up being reunited with his greatest love.
In Mexico, Imagen Televisión has added Orphans of a Nation and another Globo telenovela, Brazil Avenue. The latter, which has been aired in almost 150 countries, follows a woman who had her life ruined by an ambitious woman as a child and then returns with a new identity to seek revenge.
Teletica in Costa Rica has bagged period novela A Time to Love, written by Alcides Nogueira and Bia Corrêa do Lago. It tells the story of a couple’s young love that is interrupted by the husband’s decision to cross the Atlantic in search of work.
Finally, Panama’s TVN has picked up period title Pride & Passion. The Jane Austen-inspired series is set in the 20th Century and follows Elisabeta, a young libertarian full of dreams whose daring personality leads her into a series of social conflicts.
