Based on the 2002 movie Maid in Manhattan (Jennifer Lopez, Ralph Fiennes), Telemundo is preparing a telenovela Una Maid en Manhattan for the 2011/2012 season.
Joshua Mintz, Telemundo Entertainment’s senior executive VP, told The Hollywood Reporter that Maid (the movie) had a “perfect plot to translate into a telenovelas.”
Sony will be involved in the show, as it reported they wish to uphold the integrity of the characters and the story they initialized.
The movie, which grossed $155 million, is about a Hispanic single mother who works as a maid in a upscale hotel in New York City. She falls for a handsome politician, and the romantic comedy takes off from there.
Telemundo has said they have 500 hours of new programming planned for the season, including new episodes of the bilingual racing drama RPM Miami on mun2.
