Mom of Number 10, a telenovela on offer from Caracol Television, follows the life of Tina Manotas, a mother who sacrifices everything to make her son’s dreams of becoming a professional football player come true.
Meanwhile, the historical drama Bolívar chronicles the life and relationships of Simón Bolívar before he became famous. The Queen and The Conqueror reimagines the love story of an indigenous woman, Catalina, and Pedro de Heredia, who established the city of Cartagena, Colombia.
“Bolívar and The Queen and The Conqueror, our two most recent historical dramas, follow a formula that Caracol Television has come up with and has been very successful in international markets,” says Paloma García, international sales director for Europe and Africa.
She adds, “We see a clear opportunity at DISCOP Johannesburg to meet with African producers that are leaders in their respective regions.”
