Mundo Fox’s New Police Drama, Corazones Blindados Premieres Oct 22nd
These days… I am making time to watch a little more TV than I used to and like we have discussed (on Facebook) many times, it kind of sucks not seeing more Latino programming on TV. You have told me time and time again… “we want more Latinos on TV” but at the same time you have made it clear that programming on some of the Spanish language stations does not really appeal to you. That is about to change…
What if I told you that I saw a show that is based in Colombia with great actors that may make you tune into a Spanish language channel?
Mundo Fox, the newest Spanish language network is about to premiere “Corazones Blindados” a new sexy police drama that tells the tough life story of Bogota Colombia’s Metropolitan Police officers, between their eternal duty to fight crime and the personal problems they face on a daily basis. While on duty, Officers Raúl Ávila (@AndrSandoval) and Diana Ochoa (@MajidaIssa1) meet. At the beginning their relationship is off to a rocky start, but with time, these colleagues fall in love. It’s the beginning of a unique love story, a modern take on police partners that revolves around workplace romance, strong, single working women, passionate policemen packed with drama and action.
Our new friends at Mundo Fox gave us the opportunity to get a sneak peek of this show, and I have to say this production is impressive and will raise the bar. The camera work is amazing and really discards the stereotype of overproduced and unrealistic TV shows that some of us may have seen Mami and Abuela watch. Make no mistake… this is NOT abuela’s novela in my opinion, it is an action packed police drama that will have you hooked as soon as you watch the first scene. I am really looking forward to see the quality of the writing as the story unfolds… always a big thing for me.
What really got my attention is that it looks like a movie, the show was filmed in High Definition in Bogotá and it’s story lines are inspired by real cases encountered by the National Police Force of Colombia and uses footage shot at the National School of Operations (CENOP), the military academy where Special Forces from Colombia and other countries train. I think Mundo Fox may have a winner here, and cross over Latinos who want to watch quality Latino shows.
Join me, let’s watch the show together and let me know what you think…
“Corazones Blindados” premieres Monday October 22nd on Mundo Fox at 8/9 PM ET/PT and runs weeknights.
