Series info and plot
Telenovela is a new American sitcom television series that premiered on NBC on December 7, 2015. It`s created by Chrissy Pietrosh, Jessica Goldstein and Robert Harting and produced by Tall and Short Productions, UnbeliEVAble Entertainment and Universal Television. The first season of the half-hour comedy series was originally set to contain thirteen episodes, but was cut to eleven in mid-production.
An entertaining and lighthearted (bordering on dopey) behind-the-scenes look at the filming of a telenovela, the series stars Eva Longoria as Ana Sofia Calderon, the star of the Spanish-language sitcom who doesn`t speak Spanish. Telenovela is centered around the drama on the set, as well as on the personal relationships of the lead characters. Ana`s off-camera life is just as rich in intrigue as the life of her character.
Ratings, reviews and possible renewal
The series holds a generally positive 6.8/10 rating on IMDb and a 63 out of 100 score on Metacritic. Critics and viewers alike tend to like the comedy series, with the general consensus on the fact that it is funny – a great thing for a comedy, right? Some admit that it`s a but too dopey, but most find that there`s just the right amount of silliness, a great cast and amusing, even if predictable, dialogue. Telenovela`s viewership ratings are impressive, with over 3.5 million viewers tuning in to watch, with approximately 1 million in the 18-49 demographic. Many viewers are vouching for a continuation, and it seems warranted by high ratings and positive reviews, so stay tuned for the latest developments.
