About this show

If you think the steamy sex, sensational scandals, and wrenching heartbreak on Latino soap operas are a little extreme, just wait until you see what happens behind the scenes! Eva Longoria stars in this comedy about Ana Sofia, a sizzling TV superstar, and her lively family of cast and crew all competing to steal the spotlight. When the cameras turn off, the drama turns up as Ana battles pesky network execs, drunken script writers, narcissistic costars, and an unfortunately familiar new onscreen love interest.

Another funny show not given a decent chance. Eva Longoria and the rest of the cast were hysterical. I don't think the network gave it a chance to find it's audience.

NO SEASON 2!!! IT's so disappointing they're not going to renew Telenovela for a second season! It was such a unique, quirky and funny show.

Another fun, different yet entertaining show cancelled by NBC for cheap 'reality' drivel.
