Mark February 10 for the debut of NBCUniversal-owned Telemundo‘s latest “Super Series,” the ambitious break-the-mold telenovela format that has served as a ratings winner for the Spanish-language network in the 10pm ET/PT time slot.
Introducing Operación Pacífico, a police drama that marks the return of Majida Issa (Sin Senos si hay Paraíso) to the network. She’s alongside lead actor Mark Tacher (La Reina del Sur).
Shot in Mexico and Colombia, this 60-episode police drama centers on Ortega, a fearless woman, wife, mother, and captain of the Secret Intelligence Unit of the Police, who jeopardizes her career, her life, and her family in an attempt to capture El Guapo (Julio Bracho), a mysterious and powerful Mexican drug trafficker. Only her focus and determination will help her fulfill her mission.
“On Operación Pacifíco we are going to see the other side of the coin and audiences will get to meet the heroes who fight for justice and try to end corruption,” said Issa. “Having the opportunity to personify this dual character has been a privilege … audiences will relate to Amalia as she struggles daily trying to balance her personal and professional life,” she added.
Tacher played up the production values “and all those elements will keep viewers glued to their seats as they experience the intensity during the action scenes and witness the beautiful relationship grow between the main characters.”
The Super Series is directed by Diego Mejía and Mónica Botero, and is an original story based on true events. The concept was developed by Alberto “Albatros” González.
David Posada is executive producer for Telemundo and Silvia Duran and Guillermo Restrepo are executive producers for FoxTeleColombia.
