At first glance, one might assume Univision’s latest telenovela from Televisa, Doña Flor y Sus Dos Maridos(Doña Flor and Her Two Husbands), is a dark melodrama about a scandalous love triangle. However, the new romantic supernatural comedy inspired by the Brazilian novel by Jorge Amado is much more of a standout than a done-to-death, fidelity centered drama. Doña Flortells the story of a beautiful aspiring dancer, Flor, who falls for a handsome and charming swindler, Valentín. The two relocate to Mexico City so Flor can pursue her dance career, but after a year together, Flor loses Valentín to a fatal health complication and she finds comfort and newfound love in her lifelong friend Teodoro. But Valentín is far from done with Flor; he returns from the great beyond as a sexy ghost to continue his romantic antics with the love of his life.
