OUR NEW SOAP OPERAS and TV Series IN PRODUCTION
Universal Views TV's Production Department is developing a new production style dedicated to Soap Operas / Telenovelas. We are starting this new phase selecting 3 novels by prestigious authors: Alto Manhattan, Nelson Montero, Hollywood Small Town and Lost in the desert.
New York will be the scenario for Alto Manhattan, the first Latina soap opera fully filmed in Manhattan, with a local cast and crew. The city will be the protagonist of this new soap opera, and we’ll be showing another side of New York; the New York that conventional movies never show and tourists never visit. A passionate a unique love story as a main plot will catch the audiences, while showing us the everyday life of thousand of Latinos in the city that never sleep. Some of our characters live the American dream, others struggle to make ends meet, but all of them have something in common: they live and love New York, a tough but generous city that welcomes everyone with open arms.
Nelson Montero, based on the original novel “Volver a Morir” by ROSANA UBANELL is the first private detective with Latino heritage ever to lead a TV series in English and Spanish. Montero is a daring, funny, and street-wise – but somewhat scruffy – private investigator. His look is far removed from the usual detectives seen in similar TV series in this genre, but he captivates the audience with his peculiar charm. One of his great abilities is that he can imitate any Latin American accent, apart from speaking unorthodox English, despite being his first language.
The story location is set in Miami, but his cases will take Nelson to different locations all over America, Puerto Rico, México, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Spain, etc. Solving crime and delinquency are his favorite occupations and he goes wherever he is needed. Humor is a must in every episode –despite the seriousness of the cases he is working on- and tropical background music will fill the series and the warm nights of Miami
