After years of watching telenovelas, and some James Bond flicks, I'd never put the two in the same sentence, but turns out they have something in common besides sexy leading ladies.
Carlos Sotomayor, the big-wig in charge of telenovela production at Univision, broke it down for me: "Telenovelas are like James Bond movies. You know that he's going to save the world, he's going to get the girl, you know everything. But every time a new James Bond movie comes out you go and see it. This is the exact same thing with a telenovela."
