MIAMI, July 29 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Juan Camilo Ferrand, coauthor of the book “Las Fantasticas, Las Munecas de la Mafia” (Santillana, 2009), now writes for Hispanic television network Telemundo the series LA DIOSA CORONADA, a story about an ex beauty queen who, in her desire to change her life becomes tangled in a world of glamour, models and mafia.
After having co-written the successful TV series “El Cartel” and “Las Munecas de la Mafia”, broadcasted in the U.S. and most of Latin America, Juan Camilo Ferrand creates this story exclusively for Telemundo. The main character is a young woman by the name of Raquel Santamaria. Tired of living in poverty, she sets out to make her dream of fame, money, and social recognition a reality.
With over 50,000 copies sold in Latin America, “Las Fantasticas, Las Munecas de la Mafia” (Santillana, 2009) has become an International bestseller while its television counterpart captured a large chunk of the U.S. audience in its 10:00 p.m. slot.
With the television series “LA DIOSA CORONADA”, produced by Telemundo Studios in Colombia, Ferrand explores a widespread situation in Latin American countries: the need young people have to build a better life for themselves than the one they had with their parents. “Poverty is an inherent evil in our societies. With La Diosa Coronada I wanted to tell the story of a woman who, led by need-as well as ambition and nonconformity-decides to use her beauty and cunning to achieve the goals she has set for herself. On the road, she must make decisions that will make her confront her sense of good and bad,” said the author. “As soon as the television series is done, Ill continue with the book,” he added.
“LA DIOSA CORONADA” premiered on Monday, July 26th on TELEMUNDO, following the telenovela Donde Esta Elisa.
