 Floridian: Networks concocting telenovela experiment
Telenovelas as they are produced for Latin American television, full of morality tales and veiled social commentaries, would look very strange to American viewers - at least to those who aren't already seeing them on Telemundo, the Spanish-language network that is a corporate parner of NBC.
In parts of South and Central America, telenovelas are must-see TV, providing watercooler conversation during the workday, said Robert Huesca, who teaches a course on telenovelas at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.
But, although Latin American audiences may enjoy snickering at a taboo jab at the government, buried inside a telenovela plot, U.S. viewers are used to open criticism of the government.

 Salon.com Life | The ugly truth about "Betty La Fea"
Like their English-language counterparts, Spanish-language filmmakers and advertisers had begun to learn that women are so eager to see realistic portrayals of themselves in the media that they are willing to throw their support behind any show that promises even the slightest hint of reality.
Telenovelas, however, have stubbornly maintained a traditional view of women's aspirations, one that equates female success with being beautiful and married.
While there have been a few exceptions, most recently the Mexican telenovela "Mirada de Mujer," which told the story of a middle-aged woman who confronts life on her own after discovering her husband is having an affair, soaps have mostly remained faithful to a single plot involving a beautiful ingénue's search for love.
