Victoria is the title of a Spanish-language telenovela about a woman who falls in love with a dashing younger man, when her marriage collapses around her. It is produced by the United States-based television network Telemundo and RTI Colombia. This limited-run series debuted in the US on December 4, 2007, after La Esclava Isaura finished. Filmed in Bogotá, it stars Victoria Ruffo, Mauricio Ochmann, Arturo Peniche, Géraldine Bazán[1] and Andrea López.

The series has been released on DVD in the USA in a condensed version with optional English subtitles. This telenovela was sold to 21 countries around the world.



In her 25th wedding anniversary party, Victoria Mendoza (Victoria Ruffo) finds out her husband Enrique Mendoza (Arturo Peniche) has a mistress, Tatiana López (Andrea Lopez). Suddenly Victoria's whole life crashes around her as she realizes her marriage is wrecked. As she tries to heal the pain of her husband's adultery, she meets the 33-year-old Jerónimo (Mauricio Ochmann) out of the blue.[2]

Victoria falls for this younger man, giving her a second chance at the true love and passion missing in her loveless marriage. Many of her loved ones oppose her relationship, including her daughters Paula (Geraldine Bazán) and Mariana (Laura Perico), her mother Mercedes (Margalida Castro) and her ex husband. They blame her for the breakup. On the other hand, her son Santiago (Ricardo Abarca) offers unconditional support.[2] While her younger daughter Mariana (Laura Perico) is supposed to be going to university but isn't, she instead goes to a bar. The owner of the bar, Pacho, gets girls high and then rapes them. And that's what happened to Mariana. Mariana met him because of her other "friend" Arturo. Mariana actually wanted to get together with Arturo but Pacho convinced her into getting with him supposedly just to make Arturo jealous. Victoria has many problems but does she know she has those problems? Can she solve them? So Victoria faces a difficult decision: either fight to keep true love alive or surrender and let it slip away.


Victoria is a remake of Señora Isabel, a 1993 Colombian telenovela. This story was also filmed for Mexican TV in 1997 as Mirada de mujer (The Gaze of a Woman). Telemundo broadcast English subtitles as closed captions on CC3. This show's working titles were Tiempos de Victoria (Victoria's Times), Señora Isabel and The Mauricio Ochmann Project.

The show's premiere on Telemundo reached 782,000 core adult (ages 18–49) viewers, according to NTI, and over 1.5 million total viewers overall.[3] The expanded the series' run to about 160 chapters from the standard length, 120 shows. It has not announced any plans to remake Mirada's sequel, El Regreso (The Return) as Victoria covered El Regreso (both in one).[4] Géraldine Bazán won a Latin ACE Award for "Best Inspiring Young Actress" during her role as Paula.[5]


Victoria airs on Caracol TV in Colombia, on Telemundo in the United States, on Fox televizija in Serbia, on Nova TV - September 26, 2008 and Diema Family - January 5, 2009 in Bulgaria, Televisa (on Galavisión) in Mexico, on POP TV in Slovenia, on NTV Hayat in Bosnia and Herzegovina, on Acasǎ in Bucharest, Romania, from August 2009 in Slovakia on TV Doma, on Shant Tv in Armenia and from August 2009 on Farsi1 EutelSat Satellite TV Channel (Farsi1 later confirmed censoring some scenes including kisses and sexual actions in order to adapt the serial to Iranian culture).
