Univision's latest telenovela, the charming and witty Papa a Toda Madre (Mother of All Dads) is a much-needed breath of fresh air. Telecast weeknights at 9 p.m., it is a one-hour dramedy from creator Pedro Armando Rodriguez who also served as producer alongside Rosy Ocampo. (The two previously worked on Univision’s La Doble Vida de Estela Carillo,Mexico’s No. 1-rated novela.) Papafollows wealthy womanizer Mauricio López-Garza, owner of his late mother’s toy company Logatoys. Despite repeated warnings by his right-hand man Fabrizio, the headstrong Mauricio continues his reckless spending and luxurious lifestyle -- which eventually lead him and Logatoys close to bankruptcy. He soon falls for a beautiful woman named Miranda who, like him, despises children -- and much to his benefit, she is the daughter of a wealthy investor. In no time at all the cad plots to marry her in order to save the company.
