El Capo: Spanish Language Soap Opera Scores Big U.S. Audience
El Capo, another popular Colombian soap opera, scores record U.S. audience.
The telenovela--produced by Fox subsidiary Fox Telecolombia--came with a price tag of ten million U.S. dollars, making El Capo the most expensive telenovela to date. It is, therefore, not surprising that in contrast to most Latin American soap operas, El Capo delivers lots of high-intensity action sequences, delivers high quality writing and expensive set design, employed numerous actors and technicians, and most importantly, delivers outstanding performances. The star lineup includes popular Colombian actors Marlon Moreno and MarÃa Adelaida Puerta, house-hold names among Latin American telenovela fans for their roles in another highly successful drug-trade inspired telenovela, Sin Tetas No Hay Paraiso (translation: Without Breasts There's No Paradise).
The most interesting thing about Fox being the force behind El Capo is how the soap opera has been marketed outside of Latin America. The series just finished its premiere run in the U.S., scoring record ratings for the less than ten-year-old Spanish-language network Telefutura and its parent company Univision. Although Telefutura is growing in terms of viewership, the core audience remains predominately Spanish-speaking. In order to successfully introduce El Capo to a global, digital and multi-lingual audience, the series wil soon be available on Univision on Demand. In the meantime, illegal download sites such as RapidShare and BitTorrent have been providing anxious fans a chance to delve into El Capo's seamy, disturbing universe. A smart and savvy Fox would capitalize on such interest and capture even bigger audiences and revenue by releasing El Capo through any media means necessary to satisfy viewers ready for something new and exciting.
