Patricio Wills from Telemundo describes the Telenova (Spanish Soap Opera) Format

“The plot is always the same. In the first three minutes of the first episode the viewer already knows the novela will end with that same couple kissing each other. A telenovela is all about a couple who wants to kiss and a scriptwriter who stands in their way for 150 episodes.”
