Dedicated Kenyan fans of telenovelas on DStv were treated this past weekend to a thrilling pre-screening of the breath-taking new telenovela A Passion for Revenge that premieres on Telemundo (DStv 118) on Monday 22 February at 19:00 EAT.

MultiChoice Kenya Corporate Communications Manager, Philip Wahome said he was excited about Telemundo choosing to do the pre-launch in Kenya as it presents an opportunity for existing subscribers to experience first-hand and interact with the premium content available on DStv. He lauded the partnership between NBCUniversal International Networks and MultiChoice Africa saying he hopes to see such opportunities extended further to E! Entertainment Television and Studio Universal channel brands, which are also part of the NBCUniversal channel portfolio.

The brand new telenovela A Passion for Revenge features some of the biggest names in the telenovela industry such as Aarón Díaz (playing Arturo), Gonzalo García Vivanco (featuring as Flavio) and Ana Lorena Sánchez (featuring as Sophia) and revolves around the lives of the Gallardo brothers seeking revenge and justice against a man they suspect to be responsible for the death of their sister, Ignacio del Junco; the same man who also won their sister’s heart and got her pregnant.

Despite their suspicions, they soon find out that Ignacio is dead and they start to focus their revengeful efforts on the del Junco family and Ignacio’s widow, Cayetana Belmonte del Junco (Sonya Smith), a woman with a fatal wrath for anyone in her path. But things do not go as intended for the Gallardo brothers as they soon find themselves entrapped and bewitched by the beautiful del Junco sisters. When the intentions of the Gallardo brothers are realised, a war between the families erupts and an unparalleled series of dramatic events ensue.

Other telenovelas currently airing on the Telemundo channel on DStv include the recently launched Under the Same Sky, Husband for Hire, The Face of Destiny, Broken Angel, Fearless Heart and Elena’s Ghost.
