Pasiones to Air Brazilian Telenovela Gabriela


MIAMI: The Spanish-language network Pasiones has picked up the U.S. premiere rights for the Brazilian novela Gabriela.

Based on the literary work of Jorge Amado, Gabriela tells the story of a naïve yet provocative immigrant who comes to a northeastern city in Brazil and captivates the town with her beauty and sensuality. She becomes the cook for the owner of a bar and a relationship develops between them.

The novela, starring Juliana Paes alongside Antonio Fagundes and Marcelo Serrado, will air on Pasiones Monday through Friday at 10 p.m. starting tonight.
