WE tv has announced it is developing The Real Women of Telenovelas, an unscripted series to take place in the world of Spanish-language soap operas.
Set in Miami, and produced by Matador, the show will follow "beautiful and fierce Latina actresses" working in this "hyper-competitive world, which has captivated hundreds of millions of viewers around the globe," the cable network said in a news release.
No casting or anticipated air date have been announced yet.
"The world of telenovelas has everything we look for in a WE tv show -- compelling characters, conflict, consequence and comic relief," Marc Juris, the network's president, 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."
