VH1 is in Search of America's 'Numero Uno Telenovela Star'

'!VIVA HOLLYWOOD!' Premiering Spring 2008 Challenges Twelve Aspiring Telenovela Stars to Bring the Hot, Steamy and Highly Emotional World of Telenovelas to The American Public Hosted By Maria Conchita Alonso and Carlos Ponce

NEW YORK, Dec. 10 -- Latin Telenovela stars are so hot, so sexy, so extreme -- and so emotional. Thanks to VH1, American viewers will get their first taste of how addicting these shows and stars truly are. This spring, VH1 is in search of America's "numero uno telenovela star" and will chronicle the journey to stardom in its newest original series, "!Viva Hollywood!" premiering Spring 2008.

The "!Viva Hollywood!" cast of aspiring Latino and Latina telenovela stars will move into the "Casa De Locos" where they must master the "7 Deadly Sins of Telenovelas": passion, lust, charisma, drama, fire, seduction and scandal. The "sins" are disciplines each cast member must learn in order to capture the over-the-top style and flair of a true telenovela star and impress the celebrity judges: the award-winning actress and singer Maria Conchita Alonso and accomplished actor singer/song-writer Carlos Ponce. International celebrity astrologer and Latino legend, Walter Mercado, will appear in each episode to give the contestants guidance on their journey and alert the cast of their upcoming challenges. Daisy Fuentes, Angelica Vale, Charo, Christian De La Fuentes, Lorena Rojas, Maria Celeste Arraras and Perez Hilton have signed on as celebrity guest judges that will assist in determining who gets to stay and who will need to go. Each week contestants up for elimination discover their fate by watching their own over the top telenovela death scenes. Ay Dios Mio!

In the end, only one of the twelve bi-lingual contestants will have what it takes to win the coveted title of America's "Numero Uno Telenovela Star," and a prize package that includes a contract with Telemundo and a breakout role in one of their upcoming telenovelas, representation from artist management company Latin World Entertainment and a cash grand prize of $100,000.

"Viva Hollywood" is executive produced by Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and Danny Salles for World of Wonder Productions. Also serving as executive producers are Luis Balaguer for Latin World Entertainment and Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, Jenn Levy, Alex Demyanenko and Michael Hirschorn for VH1.
