Univision Debuts ‘Que te Perdone Dios’

The latest Televisa import from Mexico has landed on Univision’s prime-time slate.

Que te Perdone Dios, described as “an epic story about secrets and sins,” debuted in the network’s 10-p.m. timeslot on Jan. 19.

The telenovela, shot on location throughout Mexico, features Rebecca Jones in the role of Renata, the daughter of a wealthy family who falls in love with the foreman at her father’s ranch. Her father disapproves; he threatens the foreman; and Renata is forced into an unhappy marriage with a cruel man, while her daughter with the foreman believes Renata is her godmother.

Que te Perdone Dios will vie for viewers with Telemundo’s Dueños del Paraiso, the highly anticipated new telenovela featuring Kate del Castillo that will occupy the same timeslot. Univision executives expressed confidence in the new telenovela, as it has yet to air in Mexico (or anywhere else).

“The worldwide premiere of Que te Perdone Dios on Univision speaks to the strength of the relationship with Televisa and our commitment to deliver the best, original content year-round to our audiences across platforms,” Univision president of programming and content Alberto Ciurana said.

Produced by Angelli Nesma Medina for Televisa, Que te Perdone Dios’ cast includes Zuria Vega (Qué Pobres Tan Ricos, Un Refugio Para el Amor), Mark Tacher (Qué Pobres Tan Ricos, Abismo de Pasión, Triunfo del Amor) and Brandon Peniche (La Malquerida, Corazón Indomable).
