Vino el amor (English title: Along came Love)[1] is a Mexican telenovela produced by José Alberto Castro for Televisa.[2] It is a remake of the Chilean telenovela La chúcara.[3] It premiered on August 8, 2016 and ended on February 19, 2017.[3]

The series stars Gabriel Soto as David, Irina Baeva as Luciana, Cynthia Klitbo as Marta and Azela Robinson as Lilian.[4][5]

Plot

David (Gabriel Soto), loses his wife Lisa (Laura Carmine) in a seemingly unintentional accident, perpetrated by her obsessive sister, Graciela (Kimberly Dos Ramos). David becomes depressed to such a degree that he begins to neglect his children, Fernanda (Sofia Castro) and Bobby (Emilio Beltrán Ulrich), and the vineyard he loves so much. His sinister mother-in-law, Lilian (Azela Robinson) and Juan (Christian de la Campa), who is supposed to be David's best friend, try to take advantage of the situation to steal David's fortune. An unexpected arrival to the vineyard alters their plans.

Luciana (Irina baeva), a cheerful and impetuous youngster who lived in the vineyard along with her family many years ago, was deported with her father to Mexico. This was caused by Lilian, whose goal was to get rid of the entire family, especially Luciana's mother, Marta (Cynthia Klitbo), for revenge of past troubles, as she sent officials after them despite having their documents in order and were in progress of becoming U.S. citizens. Luciana returns as a beautiful young woman after her father, Marcos, dies, and disrupts David's life. In their relationship of love and hate, Luciana changes everything for the better and David starts to love life again, along with gaining Luciana's affection. But, with Lilian's hatred towards the lower class, due to the fact that her husband cheated on her with a servant, Graciela's obsession for David, and Fernanda's dislike for Luciana, the trio plan to prevent her from ever staying in the US.

Cast

Production

The series is an original story by Julio Rojas Gutiérrez,[7] rewriting for Mexican television by Janely Esther Lee Torres and Vanesa Varela Magallón.[7] It is directed by Salvador Sánchez and Santiago Barbosa as scene directors and Jorge Amaya and Bernardo Nájera as camera directors.[7]

Development

The development of the series is based on the Mexican emigration to the United States in search of "The American dream" and how these are humiliated and offended by the police and heartless people.[8] Also touched on topics such as bipolarity.[9] Much of the production is recorded in the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma,[7] also in San Francisco, California, United States.[10] The telenovela is also recorded in Mexico City and Tijuana, part of the cast recorded scenes in Forum 14 of Televisa San Ángel.[11]

Casting

On May 25, 2016, the TVyNovelas Magazine confirmed Gabriel Soto and Irina Baeva as the main protagonists of the story.[12] On June 8, 2016, José Alberto Castro confirmed Kimberly Dos Ramos and Christian de la Campa as the main antagonists of the series; both actors had an exclusive contract with Telemundo, and therefore they decided to accept Televisa's job offer.[13][14] The cast also included actors from other personalities such as Luciano Zacharski and Juan Vidal, who had been working for TV Azteca for years.[15][16] On June 30, 2016 it was confirmed that Laura Carmine would have a special participation of few episodes where she would interpret the wife of Gabriel Soto in the telenovela.[17]

For Kimberly Dos Ramos this project has made her character be hated, as happened to Marjorie de Sousa in the telenovela Amores verdaderos.[18] Her character helps a lot in the telenovela to help people who suffer from bipolarity,[18] be able to have a help and confront their situation. To this Dos Ramos said:

It is gratifying to know that in some way my character can help the relatives of those who suffer from bipolarity and seek solutions.[18]

Dos Ramos caused a lot of controversy at the end of September 2016, in an episode where she was totally naked in the telenovela, this being an idea of Televisa to be able to increase its ratings in its productions.[19][20]

Reception

In the United States the telenovela was very well received by the American public only in its premiere it measured 2,143,000 total viewers.[21][22] Becoming so in the most viewed production of Univision.[22][23]
