Muchachitas como tú (English title: Teenage Girls Like You) is a teen Mexican telenovela produced by Emilio Larrosa for Televisa in 2007.[1] Telenovela is a remake of the hit Muchachitas, a telenovela produced by Emilio Larrosa in 1991 for Televisa.

This telenovela tells the story of four girls: Elena Olivares, Isabel Flores, Leticia Hernández and Monica Sánchez Zuñiga. The villain is Federico Cantú, a psycho killer who will stop at nothing until he gets Guillermo's fortune (Monica's dad). Muchachitas como tú, although being strongly criticized in Mexico, was a great success; in its final episodes it was the most watched telenovela in Mexico, surpassing Pasión, the most watched telenovela in Mexico at that time.

On April 23, 2007, Canal de las Estrellas started broadcasting Muchachitas como tú weekdays at 7:00pm, replacing Amar Sin Límites. The last episode was broadcast on November 9, 2007 with Tormenta en el paraíso replacing it the following day.

Ariadne Díaz, Begoña Narváez, Gabriela Carrillo and Gloria Sierra starred as protagonists, while Fabián Robles starred as antagonist.

The main theme song was performed by Spanish singer Belinda.


Elena, Isabel, Mónica and Leticia are four girls who meet at an acting school (TAES). They belong to different social classes, but for them it is not important, because their main value is friendship. Federico Cantú (Fabián Robles) is Monica's cousin, he has been working for Guillermo, his uncle, who trusts him even though Federico's only interest is stealing his uncle's money.
