Los Reyes (TV series)

Los Reyes (The Kings) is a popular telenovela filmed in Colombia and produced by the Colombian network, RCN (Radio Cadena Nacional - "National Radio Network"). It debuted in 2005 and is available via RCN cable TV in the United States.


Los Reyes is about a working-class family and Edilberto "Beto" Reyes, the head of the family, who suddenly gets hired as president of a multinational company. The subplot to this story is an oversized jolly man who is finally coming out of the closet after two marriages and now working at a roofing company. This happens when he stops the former president of the company, a middle-aged woman with a terminal disease, from committing suicide. Beto shows the woman his daily life and his people, helping her get back on her feet. The president is grateful, and goes to France to get a treatment for her disease. When she leaves, she thanks Beto by giving him the presidency of the company.

The vicepresident, Emilio Iriarte (wrongly called "Urinarte"), who sought the company's presidency after the former president disappeared, and his family swear to take revenge. They focus on making the Reyes family go back "where they belong", but problems arise when Emilio falls in love with Laisa, Beto's 'sister'. Laisa conducts a television show on which famous real-life celebrities appear.

Other information

This comedy parodies high society and its treatment of the lower classes. There has been controversy about one character, Laisa Reyes, who is in the series and in real-life a transvestite. Reyes is well received by Colombian audiences.
