Univision and Nuyorican Productions today announced the international all-star cast of one of the most anticipated television events on Spanish-language TV, Como Ama Una Mujer" (How a Woman Loves), featuring Golden Globe and GRAMMY nominated superstar Jennifer Lopez as creator and executive producer. The five-part dramatic mini-series will debut on the Univision Television Network this fall.
An original production filmed in Mexico, Como Ama Una Mujer is inspired by the lyrics of Lopez' first Spanish-language album of the same name released earlier this year. At the end of each episode, Lopez herself will perform the theme song that inspired that episode. The five part mini-series tells the story of a woman's journey to find her true soul-mate, but with her glamorous life and professional success come heartbreak and betrayals that threaten to break her spirit.
Jennifer Lopez expressed: "We are very excited to present this project with Univision and proud to share one of our original series with the Hispanic community."
