About Colombian telenovelas

The following telenovelas have had a great impact on Colombian television audiences.

Cafe, con Aroma de Mujer

Probably one of the most popular TV shows in Colombian television. It marked a difference in Latin American telenovelas and the way they were created. The story involved both traditional and modern parts of Colombia, taking place in the heart of Colombian coffee plantations and in an important coffee export company. In a short time, "Cafe" became popular among an audience of all ages. The main actress, Margarita Rosa de Francisco, already popular for her former roles in "Gallito Ramirez" and "Escalona", gave life to "Gaviota", one of the most popular characters in Colombian television and De Francisco's most important role so far.

Betty La Fea

Main article: Betty La Fea

Even more popular than "Cafe", Betty La Fea is among the most watched TV shows in Colombian television, and it was the first successful series on the private networks since Colombian television was privatized in 1998. Its success in Colombia and in other countries have been greater than any other Colombian TV Show shown outside the country. ABC, Televisa and Sony Entertainment Television in India have done their versions of Betty La Fea, all popular among their viewers. The story is about a girl who was socially tortured because of her appearance, then meeting her boss in her new job. This is not how most telenovelas are made and this story, marked a difference in how Latin American telenovelas were made, a bigger difference than the one Cafe made before.

Pasion de Gavilanes

Main article: Pasion de Gavilanes

The second biggest co-production between a Colombian network, Canal Caracol and the Miami-based, NBC-owned network Telemundo proved a worldwide success, specially in Spain where it became popular giving its cast fame of stars, something new for Latin American actors. It is a remake of the 1994 RTI telenovela Las aguas mansas, which was not successful in ratings because its competitor was Cafe.

Even though the main scenaries where unconfusingly Colombian, the story didn't directly imply this fact since the main intention of both American and Colombian producers was to achieve a "neutral product" to appeal international audiences. This is strongly argued by many Colombian critics who claim that Pasion de Gavilanes is actually directly aimed at the Mexican community in the United States. Thus, 'Pasion' had touches of Mexican culture and it involved international actors, not only Colombian ones, which made international viewers feel more identified with the plot.
