We all know that Salma Hayek Pinault has had success adapting Spanish soap operas. As a producer on Ugly Betty, she helped introduce America Ferrera andAna Ortiz to the world. Unfortunately things don’t seem to be going as smoothly for her latest ABC novela, with reports coming in that Los Roldan is a no-go.
As you may recall, we mentioned Salma’s Los Roldan project in November. Back then, ABC seemed very excited about bringing the hit Argentine soap to the states. There was even talk about Mexican star Eugenio Derbez getting involved.
But in the past few months, things seem to have taken a turn for the worse.Derbez got swooped up by CBS for a new sitcom, Hayek Pinault’s film schedule has been nonstop, and it appears as though ABC has generally lost interest.
