Venezuelan regional news network Tele N is debuting two Colombian telenovelas, Esmeraldas and 5 Viudas Sueltas, in the US.

esmereldas 4 dec 2018Esmeraldas follows the story of the Guerrero family, which relocates to the small town of Victoria hoping to escape from the violence of the inner city. However, Victoria is not the safe haven they hoped for. The town’s emerald bonanza generates greed and violence. Soon after their arrival, Alejandro Guerrero faces his own personal battles, a quarrel with the region’s most powerful man, and the heartbreak of watching his children go against his principles.

Tele N will air all 62 episodes; the final episode is scheduled to premiere on Feb. 28.

5 Viudas Sueltas meanwhile is the story of Virginia, Samantha, Marianela, Yidis and Luisa, five women who share nothing in common except one thing: every Sunday they see each other while visiting their men at the penitentiary. With their partners in prison, all five women are now free to do as they please.

The network will air all 124 episodes; the final episode is scheduled to premiere on May 16.

“We pride ourselves on offering the very best in Spanish-language entertainment, which is why we are excited to announce these new additions to our primetime programming,” said Jesús Piñango, director of TV Content Strategy at Olympusat . “Both telenovelas feature incredible performances and portray passionate stories brimming with twists and turns.”
