‘La Fea’ Goes to China


Forget the Olympics! Another type of “world-class entertainment” is coming to China.

Mexico’s Grupo Televisa today began production of Chou Nu Wu Di, the Chinese version of La fea más bella, the telenovela it refried from Colombia’s Yo soy Betty la fea and gave birth to Ugly Betty.

According to Televisa, the drama could extend for as long as 400 episodes, and it has been “adapted to Chinese tastes” (?) to make sure its content doesn’t offend the locals.

(I certainly hope the $20 million investment will serve such a purpose, as I’m still very offended by the Mexican version.)

    alot of mexicans are interested in china and vice versa.

    could be very interesting. considering the two cultures are in some ways complete polar opposites.
