News & Interviews for Telenovela: Season 1
Telenovela may not have depth, but watching Longoria mug for the camera ain't a bad way to spend half an hour.
The show also wears well, with Longoria vigorously in the forefront and a solid supporting cast led by scene-stealers Diana Maria Riva and Alex Meneses.
Writers Chrissy Pietrosh and Jessica Goldstein, from "Cougar Town" and "My Name Is Earl," find a way to create an ensemble of characters around Longoria who are broad caricatures and yet recognizably human.
Telenovela manages to mine a few culturally specific tropes for some genuinely universal laughs.
