Bella Calamidades (Beautiful But Unlucky) is a Spanish-language telenovela produced by RTI Producciones for Caracol TV and Telemundo.[1] A tongue-in-cheek romance story, it features a ravishing beauty plagued by bad luck.[2]

The filming started in late 2009 and ended in 2010, but it was until September 16, 2013 when the serial debuted on Telemundo. Telemundo aired 2 hours of the serial weekdays at 12pm/11c central, replacing 5 Viudas Sueltas. The series ended on January 3, 2014 with Avenida Brasil replacing it. The series stars Danna Garcia and Segundo Cernadas.

Plot[edit]

The story involves a beautiful, passionate woman named Lola, who is an outcast in a town dominated by superstition. Convinced that she brings misfortune to everyone, Lola shies away from other people. When her hiding place is discovered, she returns to her home town, when a series of freakish events inevitably lead to tragedy. Heartbroken and fearing for her life at the hands of the villagers, Lola loves hope one man's love and another's generosity change her life. No one trusts her except for the man who truly loves her.[3]

Production[edit]

This show was originally planned for the 2008–2009 season.[2] The first pilot, titled "Lola Calamidades", was filmed in 2008 with Christian Meier, Danna Garcia, Kristina Lilley and Andrea Lopez. Meier eventually left Telemundo to pursue other things. From the pilot's cast only Garcia, Maria Helena Doering, and Tiberio Cruz will appear in the series. When the filming began on August 17, 2009 Telemundo had not yet cast the male lead. Martin Karpan was suggested, but due to the lack of chemistry between two leads his participation was reconsidered. At the end was the argentinian actor Segundo Cernadas ("Muñeca brava" leading man) who got the role. And they look very believable together too.

Also, Elizabeth Gutiérrez was to play at first Priscila, but refused the role in favour of other production. The role was eventually taken by Adriana Campos.
