Telemundo has announced the cast for the new series, Parientes a la Fuerza slated to premiere in late 2021. The series began production in Mexico and will be the debut of Bárbara de Regil (Rosario Tijeras) as the protagonist of the series.
The cast includes Guy Ecker (Lord of the Skies, The Inmate), Michel Duval (Deadly Class, Queen of the South,) and Chantal Andere (Tenías que ser tú) in the antagonist role; with special performances by Carmen Aub (Lord of the Skies) and Lisa Owen (Lord of the Skies). The main cast also stars Antonio de la Vega (Club de Cuervos, Monarca), Salvador Zerboni (La Reina del Sur), Alejandro Avila (Lord of the Skies), and Mauricio Garza (Betty en NY).
“I am thrilled to join the Telemundo family and to start this new cycle in my life with such a wonderful project as Parientes a la Fuerza (Family by Force,)” shared de Regil. “Carmen is a character I love because she has a beautiful vibe, which gave me butterflies the minute I read the script. I am eager to tell this story alongside an amazing cast,” she added.
Set in Los Angeles, Parientes a la Fuerza centers on George Cruz (Ecker), a famous 50-year old Hollywood screenwriter who faces a mid-life crisis in the shadow of his first and one-hit-wonder screenplay, his mother’s passing, and the betrayal of his wife Leticia (Andere). His frustration, loneliness, and feeling of failure, coupled with the need to fulfill his mother’s last wish, drive him to the other side of the U.S. border into Mexico, where he meets Carmen Jurado (de Regil), a beautiful Mexican singer who becomes his muse, his star, and his great love. George regains the inspiration he was missing and the happiness that makes him feel alive. But love doesn’t come easy when two families come together, and the contrasts between the Jurado and Cruz families will make audiences cry with laughter.
