Telemundo premiere Café con Aroma de Mujer (The Scent of Passion) on Monday 4 April at 9PM WAT on DSTV Channel 118. One of the most successful classic love stories in Spanish-language television history, this new version stars an international cast led by William Levy (“Star,” “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” “Dancing with the Stars S14”), Laura Londoño (“Escobar: Paradise Lost”, “Narcos”) and Carmen Villalobos (“Sin senos si hay paraíso,” “El señor de los cielos”).
In this contemporary, inspiring version, society and the complexities of modern women are perfectly reflected with impressive Colombian coffee landscapes as the show’s central backdrop, Café con Aroma de Mujer returns to bring back the magic of Hacienda Casablanca and the inspiring love story of Gaviota (Londoño)and Sebastián (Levy); who will have to overcome the resistance of his family, old relationships and the challenges imposed by the clash of two very different social classes.
“We’re very excited to introduce a new version of one of the most memorable and influential stories in the history of international television made for today’s audiences,” said Ronald Day, President of Entertainment and Content Strategy at Telemundo. “Showcasing a first-class cast and a classic love story that never goes out of style, ‘The Scent of Passion will captivate new and old audiences from beginning to end.”
After a seven-year hiatus from Spanish-language television, renowned Cuban American actor William Levy returns to play the lead role of “Sebastián.” Alongside Levy, Colombian actress Laura Londoño will bring to life the emblematic and endearing role of “Gaviota.” Carmen Villalobos joins them as “Lucía Sanclemente,” playing the first antagonistic character of her successful career.
