Finally free, the ladies don’t expect that these new adventures would include close calls with both the criminal justice system and the criminal world.
Tres Veces Ana This is a contemporary story of sibling rivalry featuring the return of power couple Angelique Boyer, playing triplets with very different personalities, and her real-life partner Sebastián Rulli. After a car accident in their childhood, the mischievous Ana Leticia and handicapped Ana Laura are separated from their free-spirited sister Ana Lucia.

La Candidata This timely, relevant and modern story promises to get audiences hooked. Camila Santamaria is a charismatic politician assumed to be dead after a tragic accident. Upon her return, she begins to uncover her husband’s corrupt ways and ultimately decides to challenge him in a race to be the next President.
Vino el Amor This telenovela, featuring the majestic vineyards of Napa Valley, California, brings to light the life of Mexican-Americans seeking not only the American Dream but also success with family and love. Vicente is depressed after having lost his wife in a seemingly-provoked accident, so much that he begins to neglect his children and the vineyard he loves so much. His mother-in-law and supposed best friend try to take advantage of the situation to take Vicente’s fortune, but their plans are disrupted by an unexpected arrival.
El Principe Set in the troubled border district of The Prince in the Moroccan frontier, the series begins as the young and highly trained spy, Javier Morey, arrives with the secret mission to infiltrate himself as the new chief inspector of the local police station and find out if local agents are collaborating with Muslim extremist cells. As he digs into the complex world of The Prince, Morey will meet Fatima, a Muslim teacher, sister of the most important drug trafficker in the area and of a teenage boy who has been missing for months. Although Morey will try to enlist Fatima as a confidant, it will be impossible for him to not feel attracted to her as they spend more time together, which could jeopardize his mission and even his own life.
La Ronca de Oro This is the real-life story of Helena Vargas, a singer who longed to be free during the very male chauvinist 50’s, when women had more duties than rights and were expected to be only wives and mothers. Helena found a way to express her deep desire for freedom through music, overcoming all obstacles in a prejudiced society, beginning with her family.
Las Hijas de Tierra Blanca Aurora’s life forever changed the day her father was unjustly killed by the authorities. On that day she became the leader of a group of women who rebelled against everything that had to do with power in Tierra Blanca. Tierra Blanca´s female army –formed by Aurora, Tabatha, Manuela and Yuliana– will confront the biggest drug lords with one simple message: family, elders and women must be respected. This was a battle that Aurora’s father had begun years ago but now she must lead it herself so that Tierra Blanca can once again be a town of peace, progress and solidarity.
Bloque de Búsqueda Inspired by real-life events, it revolves around Col. Hernán Martín and Capt. Antonio Gavilán, the men who created the elite Search Squad task force to track down Pablo Escobar. Knowing the only way to catch a criminal was to think and act like one, they operated on the edge of the law, aligning with the drug lord’s enemies and putting their lives — as well as those of their families — on the line to bring Colombia’s most ruthless and elusive mobster to justice.
