MIAMI – MAY 5, 2023 – ViX, the world’s leading Spanish-language streaming service, announced today the start of production for LALOLA in Mexico City. The new original romantic comedy stars Bárbara de Regil (“Rosario Tijeras,” “Cabo,” “MexZombies”), Alejandro de la Madrid (“La rebelión” [The Rebellion], “Enfermo amor” [Love Sick], “Monarca” [Monarch]), Alexis Ayala (“Amar a muerte” [Love to Death], “Vencer la ausencia” [Overcoming Loss], “Si nos dejan” [If They Let Us]), Gonzalo García Vivanco (“La Desalmada” [Heartless], “Cuna de lobos” [Cradle of wolves]) and Cynthia Klitbo (“Juego de mentiras” [Game of Lies], “Mujer de nadie” [Her Own Woman], “El privilegio de amar” [The Right to Love]).
Produced by Dori Media International, LALOLA also features Carmen Madrid, Pamela Almanza, Majo Pérez, Chirstopher Aguilasocho, Alfonso Borbolla, Epy Velez, Lumi Cavazos and Francisca Aronsson.
LALOLA tells the story of how a successful man, who thinks he can use women to satisfy his ego, wakes up one day in the body of a woman, then seeks to reverse this and return to his original body while trying to protect his job and the relationships with his daughter, mother, and best friend. In this new reality, LaLola will suffer the consequences of machismo and must re-learn everything, from walking to navigating her way to work and, above all, the true meaning of love.
“ViX is thrilled to continue adding entertaining and engaging stories for our audiences and bringing together the best Spanish-language content creators under one roof. This original series is an adaptation of one of the most successful romantic comedy formats in Latin America and we are sure viewers will love it,” said Vincenzo Gratteri, senior vice president of Development for ViX.
