Salma Hayek: New Telenovela Coming to ABC!

Salma Hayek is bringing the telenovela back to ABC!

The 44-year-old actress and her producing partner, Jose Tamez, are planning to develop a US version of the Argentinian telenovela Los Roldan at ABC.

According to Variety, Los Roldan “follows a working-class man who saves the life of a woman. She then hires him to run her company — much to the chagrin of her family.”

Salma will be working with Ugly Betty writer Veronica Becker and Sarah Kucserka, who will write and produce the project.

telenovelas are like soap operas in the US from the 1950″s. There’s no diversity in them and Brazilian soaps are the worst. RACISTS!

@Iffy Miffy: There’s more into the story and we found out why that woman hires that man to be head of a company.
And nonsense? USA is needing from stories from another countries, or are making movies based on books, series, etc, reshooting series like 90210 or Merlose Place, because it seems that they’re outta of ideas or original ideas don’t succeed in your country.
And you have to see the show before judging.

@Nico: Except there’s a tiny problem in that statement. I am not from the US. Yes, nonsense. Telenovelas, soaps, are the bottom of the barrel when it comes to TV series.

Go Selma!! Nice to see a smart and talented woman on this site for a change!!

I´m from Argentina and iswear that the Roldan is one of the worst telenovelas from here. There´s a lot of other shows here that are so good, like Culpables.
