El Rostro de la Venganza is a new telenovela coming this summer to Telemundo. The new series is an original plot by Chilean writer Sebastian Arrau.
Back in May the NBC owned network presented a pilot at the Upfront which was recently leaked. The summer is going to get really steamy judging from the scenes presented.
Confirmed to star are David Chocarro, Elizabeth Gutierrez and Maritza Rodriguez. In the presentation we can also see Saul Lizaso who seems to be the big villain.
Here is the brief synopsis from a Telemundo press release:
After spending most of his life in jail paying for a crime he has no memory of committing, 30 year-old Diego Mercader Carrasco is released and adopts a different identity to begin a new life and protect himself from his past. With the help of his psychiatrist Antonia Villarroel and Ezequiel Alvarado, who becomes his benefactor and a father figure, Diego gets a second chance as he will now be known as Martin Mendez.
Antonia and Martin (Diego) become romantically involved, and she teaches him about life and love. As her love for Martin grows, Antonia digs deeper into Diego's case, trying to find out what really happened 20 years earlier. Determined to prove his innocence, Antonia gets involved more than she should and will pay a very high price for her investigation. Meanwhile, Martin must uncover the past and piece together clues and memories of the tragedy that unfolded 20 years ago to reveal…what really happened that day?
