Los Angeles (USA), Feb 22 (EFE) .- “Superstore”, the series starring America Ferrera about the employees of a gigantic hypermarket, will have a Spanish version produced between Mexico and the United States.
Variety magazine announced on Monday some details of the format, provisionally titled “Supertitlan”, which will feature 48 one-hour chapters entirely in Spanish.
In the original plot, issues such as immigration and dual cultural identity were frequently introduced: for example, Ferrera’s character was that of an American of Honduran origin who navigated between the two cultures.
“Superstore is a bold workplace comedy known for courageously tackling important social issues,” said Universal Studios International Development Officer Enrique Guillen.
At the moment it is unknown where the new series will be broadcast and who will be its protagonists.
Original fiction is one of the most successful series on the NBC network, gathering an average of 3.8 million viewers in its traditional television broadcast.
Despite the fact that Ferrera said goodbye in the fifth season, the channel renewed the format for a sixth season that will end, finally, on March 25.
Along with the Universal group, the Mexican production company Dopamine (“Hernán”) will also work on the new format.
