Sin tetas no hay paraíso (Without Tits There Is No Paradise) is a famous Colombian television series, produced and aired by Caracol TV. The show is based on the best-selling novel of the same name written by Gustavo Bolivar.
The story is based on a young girl, Catalina, who lives in Pereira and becomes obsessed with getting breast implants in order to overcome poverty. Catalina decides to become a "prepago" (prepaid), a prostitute who has sex with drug traffickers in exchange for gifts, money and social status.
The complete, uncut series was released on DVD in the United States under the title Sin Pechos No Hay Paraíso on October 13, 2009 by DistriMax Inc.; the five-disc set includes English subtitles.
Telemundo aired this series on Monday February 8, 2010 with English captions on CC3. When it premiered, the word "Tetas" was censored out and replaced with an image of a bra in between the first T and the final S because its English translation "tits" was censored from broadcast television by the FCC. This show lasted for about one month as there have only been 23 episodes produced.
