MIAMI – April 27, 2016 – TELEMUNDO confirmed the production kick off of its new original production “Silvana Sin Lana,” starring Carlos Ponce, Maritza Rodriguez and the Oscar-nominated actress Adriana Barraza. The romantic comedy tells the story of Silvana “Chivis” (Rodriguez), a wealthy woman who loses everything she has and is forced to move to a working class neighborhood, where she meets Manuel (Ponce), a fishmonger with a strong dislike for upper class people. The two will need to do the impossible in order to resist their mutual attraction, which goes against their beliefs and the world they grew up in. “Silvana Sin Lana” is an original story by Rodrigo Bastidas and Elena Muñoz, adapted by Sandra Velasco and directed by Luis Manzo and Ricardo Schwarz. The production is filmed in Miami with Carmen Cecilia Urbaneja (“Tierra de Reyes,” “En otra piel”) as executive producer.
This romantic and comedy-filled story marks the return of Carlos Ponce to TELEMUNDO as Manuel Gallardo, a widower with four children who works hard selling fish for a living. Even though Manuel promised his children that he would never marry again and has learned to be happy by himself, his promise will be put to the test when “Chivis” moves in next door and challenges all of his prejudices towards rich people.
Following her successful participation in the new season of the TELEMUNDO SUPER SERIES™ “El Señor de los Cielos,” Maritza Rodriguez plays Silvana “Chivis” Rivapalacios de Villaseñor, a wealthy woman happily devoted to raising her three daughters. However, fate takes an unexpected turn, forcing her to give up her life of luxury and go to work for the first time in order to support her family without the help of a man. Along the way, she will find true love with the person she least expects, her neighbor Manuel.
Renowned Oscar-nominated actress Adriana Barraza plays Trinidad “Trini” Altamirano de Rivapalacios, mother to “Chivis,” and the judgmental grandmother of the Villaseñor sisters. In denial of her new economic situation, she will struggle to accept her family’s new lifestyle and will arrive to her new neighborhood thinking she can boss around its residents.
In addition to its stellar cast, “Silvana Sin Lana” features a talented lineup of supporting actors including Marimar Vega, Ricardo Abarca, Eduardo Ibarrola, Javier Valcarcel, Thali Garcia, Marcela Guirado, Alexandra Pomales, Vince Miranda, Patricio Gallardo, Samantha Dagnino, Raury Rolander, Briggite Bozo, Santiago Torres, and Roberto Escobar, among others.
