“The world of telenovelas has everything we look for in a WE tv show — compelling characters, conflict, consequence and comic relief,” WE tv president Marc Juris said in a statement.

“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.”
