Donde Esta Elisa?

Donde Esta Elisa?(Where is Elisa?) is a working title of a Spanish-language telenovela produced by the United States-based television network Telemundo. The melodrama is a remake of Chilean Soap Opera: Donde Esta Elisa? produced by TVN in 2009.

Telemundo will likely air the serial from Monday to Friday over about 26 weeks during the 2010-2011 season. As with most of its other soap operas, the network will broadcast English subtitles as closed captions on CC3.

According to its original writer (Pablo Illanes), inspiration of the story comes from the real life drama of British native Madeleine McCann in Portugal, but unlike the McCann story, in the soap opera it is a youngster that disappears and not a little kid. The disappearance in a local club makes the story very similar to that of Jorge Matute Johns, a Chilean youngster who disappeared and was never seen again after coming out of a party at a local disco. The list of suspects is long and it includes family members, fellow students, and friends of the youngster that went to the same places that she used to go to before disappearing.

The first sneak peek of the production was shown on Tuesday January 13, 2010. Series produced in Miami Florida

Filming started on 27 January.


The lives of the Altamira family will change forever. Their lives will go around the events in the disappearance of Elisa (Vanessa Pose), one of the daughters of the marriage between Mariano Altamira (Gabriel Porras) and Dana Riggs (Sonya Smith).

Once she disappears, we begin to learn the secrets of every member of the family and friends; the paranoias start, histories from the past, themes that were supposed to be buried and the recriminations among family members start.

All these events lead us into having a long list of suspects, among them family members , fellow students, former workers of the Altamira and several friends that used to go to the same places she was going before disappearing
