DISCOP Johannesburg Spotlight: Caracol Internacional


The telenovela The Goddess, which Caracol Internacional will be presenting to buyers at DISCOP Johannesburg, tells the story of Patricia Teherán, a singer who conquered a world of men with her talent and love.

Another novela highlight is Dynasty, about a man who uses his music career to keep his son’s legacy alive after he dies. There is also Surviving Escobar, Alias JJ, which is about Pablo Escobar’s right-hand man and lieutenant. Paloma García, the company’s sales executive for Europe and Africa, says, “Our telenovelas offer eternal love stories and innovative plots that connect with universal emotions.”

García notes that there are many English-dubbed titles in the Caracol Internacional catalog, as well as some dubbed in French and Portuguese. She believes this will help further sales across Africa. “The territory is demanding more content, and we want to be well positioned to provide good-quality titles for each country.”
