High Fashion Meets High Drama in Univision's Newest Primetime Novela ``Amar Otra Vez''

MIAMI--()--Dec. 18, 2003--An intense love story with an all-star cast, "Amar Otra Vez" ("To Love Again") premieres on Univision Network on Monday, December 22 at 7:00 pm ET.

Targeted to a younger audience, this new novela stars one of Mexico's most popular singer/actresses Iran Castillo ("Preciosa", "Clase 406"), along with heartthrobs Rafael Amaya ("Salome") and Valentino Lanus ("El Juego de la Vida"). The production also marks the much anticipated return of "Mexico's Sweetheart" Angelica Maria, one of Hispanic television's most popular novela actresses.

"Amar Otra Vez" centers on the life of Rocio (Iran Castillo), a humble seamstress and budding fashion designer who lives in a small Mexican town. When the love of her life Fernando (Rafael Amaya) finally proposes, her happiness seems assured. Breathless with anticipation, she sets about designing a beautiful white gown for the occasion. But as her wedding day arrives, Rocio and Fernando's mother, Balbina (Angelica Maria) receive devastating news: Fernando has met an untimely death in Mexico City. As Rocio's dream turns into a nightmare, both women rush to the capital to investigate his death. Once there, they begin to untangle an unfathomable web of deceit and betrayal: Fernando is not only alive, but his unbridled ambition led him to carry out an unthinkably heartless ruse: he fabricated his own death in order to marry Brenda (Margarita Magana), his wealthy boss's daughter.

Emotionally destroyed by Fernando's cruel betrayal, Rocio decides to stay in Mexico City and start a new life. Happiness seems once again within her grasp when she meets Daniel, a handsome radio DJ. As their friendship eventually blossoms into a passionate love affair, Daniel's ex-girlfriend Veronica (Vanessa Guzman), determines to get him back...at any cost. When she falsely claims the child she is carrying belongs to him, Rocio is left brokenhearted once again.

Drained and despondent, Rocio decides to pour what's left of her emotions into furthering the only other love she's ever known...fashion. She builds a successful career -- but ultimately feels unfulfilled as true happiness continues to elude her. Will Rocio ever realize her dream of walking down the aisle in her beautiful wedding gown? Only time will tell if she will, indeed, love again.

"Amar Otra Vez" will air Monday-Friday, 7-8 pm ET/PT (6-7 pm Central/Mountain) only on Univision, Hispanic America's favorite TV network.
