Telemundo has announced that its new version of Café con Aroma de Mujer is set to premiere on Tuesday, May 25 at 10 p.m./9c. William Levy makes his return to Spanish television to star (Star, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Dancing with the Stars S14) along with Laura Londoño (Escobar: Paradise Lost, Narcos) and Carmen Villalobos (Sin senos si hay paraíso, El señor de los cielos).
In a contemporary and inspiring version that reflects today’s modern woman and society, and with the impressive Colombian coffee landscapes as the main backdrop, Café con Aroma de Mujer returns to bring back the magic of Hacienda Casablanca and the inspiring love story of Gaviota (Londoño) and Sebastián (Levy); who will have to overcome the resistance of his family, old relationships and the challenges imposed by the clash of two very different social classes.
“We’re very excited to introduce a new version of one of the most memorable and influential stories in the history of international television made for today’s audiences,” said Ronald Day, President of Entertainment and Content Strategy at Telemundo. “Showcasing a first-class cast and a classic love story that never goes out of style, ‘Café con aroma de mujer’ will captivate new and old audiences from beginning to end.”
After a seven-year hiatus from Spanish-language television, renowned Cuban American actor Levy returns to play the lead role of “Sebastián.” Alongside Levy, Colombian actress Londoño will bring to life the emblematic and endearing role of “Gaviota.” Carmen Villalobos joins them as “Lucía Sanclemente,” playing the first antagonistic character of her career. The cast also includes Diego Cadavid (“Iván Vallejo”), Lincoln Palomeque (“Leonidas Salinas”), Mabel Moreno (“Lucrecia Valencia”) and Katherine Vélez (“Carmenza Suárez”). Also joining the cast are Juan David Agudelo, María Teresa Barreto, Laura Archbold, Luces Velasquez, Andrés Toro, Yarlo Ruiz, Luis Eduardo Motoa, Caterin Escobar, Raúl Ocampo, Pedro Gilmore, Marcelo Dos Santos, Rodrigo Candamil, Ramiro Meneses, Laura Junco, Dailyn Valdivieso, Jorge López, and Mario Duarte, among others.
A RCN Televisión production, inspired by the original story from Fernando Gaitán, author of international hit “Yo soy Betty, la fea,” Café con Aroma de Mujer was written by Adriana Suárez, Javier Giraldo and Paola Cazares and is being filmed in Colombia and New York City.
“This is one of the most important projects from RCN Televisión in 2021. The new version maintains the essence from the original story written by Fernando Gaitán, while it also incorporates modern-day elements that will make it even more exciting to watch,” said Juan Pablo Posada, VP of Content, RCN Televisión.
