Venevision Productions, a production company of the Cisneros Group, and Univision Studios marked the beginning of production of its latesttelenovela “Cosita Linda” with the traditional ‘claquetazo’ (symbolic clapping of the production clapperboard), during a launch event that took place Friday morning, May 31st, inside Studio C of Venevision Studios’ state-of-the-art facilities in Miami, Florida. Attending the event were executives from both companies as well as several members of the cast that is headlined by Christian Meier and Ana Lorena Sanchez.
“It’s very exciting to be able to celebrate, together with Univision Studios, the beginning of another great production that is sure to become a favorite among television audiences in the United States, Puerto Rico and throughout Latin America; enjoyed by the millions of fans of the classic ‘telenovela’ around the world,” emphasized Peter Tinoco, President & CEO of Venevision Productions.
The original story of “Cosita Linda” was written by Leonardo Padron, the renowned author of the acclaimed telenovela “Eva Luna,” which garnered widespread national and international success, and it develops in the city of Los Angeles, California, where the Lujan and Rincon families live in almost opposite worlds. The Lujan’s live a privileged life among luxury, enjoying the benefits of high-class economic status; while the Rincon’s are a middle-class family, simple, hard-working and close-knit. Fate – and the love between Diego Lujan (Christian Meier) and Ana Rincon (Ana Lorena Sanchez) – will lead these two very different families to cross paths, uniting them forever.
The fascinating telenovela features a stellar cast that includes Zuleyka Rivera, Pedro Moreno, Scarlet Gruber, Adrian Di Monte, Carolina Tejera, Alma Delfina, Alfredo Huereca, Henry Zakka, Alberto Salaberri, Mariet Rodriguez and Mijail Mulkay. Ana Belen Lander, Emeraude Toubia, Cristina Bernal, Franklin Virguez, Sandra Itzel, Patricio Gallardo, Danilo Carrera, Anna Silvetti, Tali Duclaud, Gisela Abumrad, Jason Canela and Liliana Rodriguez complete the list of outstanding actors and actresses in “Cosita Linda.”
