Mega's biggest success is now making its way outside Chile. Perdona nuestros pecados, the telenovela aired Mondays through Thursdays at 10:30pm, is now adding its first international screen, as it was acquired by TVN in Panama.
The fiction joins other Mega productions that also recently made their way to new territories in their original versions, such as Sres. Papis in Israel and Indonesia, or Amanda in Uruguay (Teledoce) and Paraguay (Telefuturo).
"What we've accomplished these last few years is very important, because the network had never sold anything before. Being present in these many countries is a real success," said Mega's Content Manager, Juan Ignacio Vicente, said to El Mercurio.
With an average 27.8 rating since its premiere, on March 6, Perdona nuestros pecados became the highest rated show on Chile's broadcast TV.
And the trend keeps growing: in August, Mega's original drama registered its highest rating ever with 30.6, pushing the network into a new win in August.
Written by Pablo Illanes and Josefina Fernández, Perdona nuestros pecados tells the story of a powerful high-class family in Chile in the 1950s; a clan led by Armando Quiroga (Alvaro Rudolphy), where intrigue, suspense and romance combine in a tale of passion in times of hypocrisy.
Mega confirmed the series will have a second season and will stay on the air through the first half of 2018. The creators didn't rule out the possibility to extend the story to a third season.
