Here’s a bunch of interesting news, from both local sources and some more traditional outlets. First up, brand new from De Frente:
Mexidata.info is carrying a pretty zany story whose title speaks for itself: Mexican “Telenovelas” a Big Hit in China.
Turns out, for some weird reason, telenovelas translate really well into the Chinese marketplace, possibly because ‘telenovelas deal … with family, moral and social issues in a way the that Chinese could relate to‘. Televisa, the largest producer of the telenovela genre, just signed a partnership deal with China Central Television to adapt and create a bunch of new telenovela content for the Chinese market.
Globalization certainly bears some weird looking fruit 🙂
