Macarena Achaga has been confirmed as the protagonist of the series “Travesuras de la Niña Mala.” The original production of ViX+, TelevisaUnivision’s new subscription-based global Spanish-language streaming service, is based on a novel by Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa.
W Studios will produce “Travesuras de la Niña Mala,” which will feature the epic love story between Arlette, a non-conformist and adventurous woman, and her adolescent love, Ricardo, a man trapped in a predictable routine, who, thanks to Arlette, gradually learns to step out of his comfort zone.
Over the course of 40 years, the lives of these two characters intertwine around the world: Lima, Paris, Madrid, Tokyo and London, among others. The “bad girl” challenges us to question life on autopilot, transform ourselves and take charge of who we want to be, in addition to seeking happiness while feeling immortal, because without those moments when we forget that everything comes to an end, is life worth living?
“‘The mischief of the bad girl‘ proves that my purpose of seeking equity and projection of our female voices attracts characters willing to do anything, questioning everything, in every era,” said Macarena Achaga. “This time I will be a voice that comes from the 60s. A voice that comes to me through the people I love and respect the most in the industry. Flooded with pride, I can’t wait to share this journey of rebellion and revolution with much love for the world, from ViX+.”
ViX+ will also adapt Mario Vargas Llosa’s comic novel “Pantaleón y las visitadoras” as an exclusive Spanish-language series.
As part of the recently launched ViX, the largest Spanish-language streaming service, the new subscription-based (SVOD) tier, ViX+, will offer more than 10,000 hours of premium content. It will include more than 50 ViX+ Original series and movies in its first year.
