    I used to watch this telenovela in Brazil, i had no idea CW was going to adapt. I don’t even know what to think.

    The concept is so silly that it could honestly work for the CW. I assume Cw will pick up this or Identity as their none Supernatural dramas. But if the want this show to succeed the have to CHANGE THE TITLE.

    • dee says:

      Blech, upcoming tv show previews/teasers are supposed to “TEASE” – to entice you to watch. I’m not enticed – not teased … it strikes me as juvenile, stupid, slow, ignorant…. I’m already tired and bored with this piece of c-rap

  3. Ally Oop says:

    I doubt this show could do well on CW. The premise stinks. It’s a shame because there’s a serious lack of good Latin American leads on American English-language tv.

  4. justsaying says:

    what the what? just no. please give this girl a better pilot than this. you lost me at “accidentally artificially inseminated”. No actually you lost me at the off putting title. But the premise made me want to throw my chromebook at my tv screen.

  5. Dav says:

    Good for her. Still not gonna watch it.

  6. Jana says:

    The premise is horrible! Gina is a good actress but this pilot is crap and why does American TV always do adaptations of the worse telenovelas? And the working title sucks

  7. madhatter360 says:

    I really want to watch this, just to get an answer to the question “How does one get ‘accidentally inseminated’?”.

  8. Jared says:

    This series won’t get past the pilot stage. If the CW feels the need to pick up a non genre show Identity seems like the better choice.

    Have you ever seen the little gem of a movie called “Quinceañera”? Yes, it’s absolutely possible to get pregnant and still being a virgin. Petting will do this to you.

  10. Me says:

    After the premise all I could think was, “law suit.”

  11. I predict: EPIC SHOW FAIL

    Remember Jane by Design? Me either.
