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 [,28704,1661240,00.html] Geraldine Bazan [] and Andrea López.


At 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. []

Victoria falls for this younger man, giving her a second chance at the true love and passion missing in her loveless marriage. [] Unfortunately, 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. [] Whie her younger daughter Mariana (Laura Perico) is supposted to be going to university but she isn't, she instead goes to a bar. The owner of the bar, Pacho, gets girls high and then rapes them. And thats what happened to Mariana sadly. 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 suppostedly 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 soap. This story was also filmed for Mexican TV in 1997 as "Mirada de mujer" ("The Gaze of a Woman"). [] Telemundo plans to air the serial from Monday to Friday over about 26 weeks. As with most of its other soap operas, the network will 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. [] The network expanded the series' run to about 160 chapters from the standard length, 120 shows. It has not announced whether it will remake "Mirada"'s sequel, "El Regreso" ("The Return"). Geraldine Bazan won a Latin ACE Award for "Best Inspiring Young Actress" during her role as Paula. []


Victoria airs in Colombia as well as Telemundo in the United States, as Televisa (on Galavisión) in Mexico and Acasǎ in Bucharest, Romania
