Thalia to Headline a New Telenovela

Before becoming an international singing sensation, Thalía rose to acclaim in telenovelas like Marimar, María la del Barrio, Maria Mercedes and Rosalinda… And, now it looks like she’s headed back to her roots.

The 40-year-old Mexican actress/singer has reportedly agreed to headline a brand new telenovela.


After reviewing several offers, it appears that Thalía has found the right project to get her back in front of the cameras. Details of the new melodrama are being kept under wraps, but sources say the project will be an original story that was written specifically for her. The story will apparently be a romantic comedy that will consist of 100 episodes. No word yet on who will be her romantic counterpart.

As part of her deal to return to television, Thalía laid down strict rules. She’s asked for creative input, a request accepted by producers Roberto Gomez and Pedro Torres. She also asked for a flexible shooting schedule to help accommodate her busy life as a wife and mother.
