Miami, FL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–October 9, 2007–Univision and Nuyorican Productions today announced the international all-star cast of one of the most anticipated television events on Spanish-language TV, “Como Ama Una Mujer” (How a Woman Loves), featuring Golden Globe and GRAMMY(R) nominated superstar Jennifer Lopez as creator and executive producer. The five-part dramatic mini-series will debut on the Univision Television Network this fall.

At the end of each episode, Lopez herself will perform the theme song that inspired that episode.
