Telemundo released today a featurette showcasing the lead cast of the new miniseries, Diario de un Gigoló (Diary of a Gigolo), an exclusive 10-episode event slated to premiere in January 2022.
The video features interviews with the internationally acclaimed cast including Spanish actor Jesús Castro (La Reina del Sur, Brigada Costa del Sol,) the Oscar-nominated actress, Adriana Barraza (Bingo Hell, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, Babel, We Can be Heroes,) Victoria White (Buscando a Frida,) Fabiola Campomanes (El Juego de las Llaves, Mi corazón es Tuyo,) and Eugenia Tobal (Sos Mi Hombre, Los Únicos).
Diario de un Gigoló is an enthralling mini-series that tells the story of Emanuel (Castro), a male escort living a life of freedom and luxury. After enduring violence and poverty during his childhood years, Emanuel forges a strong bond with Minou (Barraza,) a businesswoman who takes him under her wing and helps him become a sought-after male escort. Fate changes when Ana (Campomanes,) one of his most frequent clients, offers him a tough job – to seduce her daughter Julia to help build her self-esteem.
Emanuel unexpectedly gets romantically involved with Julia, making him doubt his life choices. Consumed by jealousy for the relationship she promoted, Ana threatens to reveal the truth about Emanuel to her daughter to end their romance. Blinded by his love for Julia, Emanuel fails to see the dangers impacting their uncertain future together and his complicated life as a gigolo.
