Desperate Housewives en Spanish

Television Latin America has signed an agreement to produce a Spanish version of Desperate Housewives for showing on Univision in the U.S., according to a MediaWeek article.

The show will be produced in Argentina, and scripts will follow the U.S. version but adapted to "the preferences of U.S. Hispanics."

Word is that Jennifer Lopez is partly behind (no pun intended) this? If so, it's great to see her be Latina again! Before I'm judged as "harsh" ... I do need to say there is a lot of resentment in the Hispanic community toward her. Many view her as a "sell out" and her recent Spanish-language album was viewed by many as an "attempt" to be "Latina again." While the mainstream media wrote a lot about her return "to the hood" a few months ago to launch her new Spanish album, what wasn't widely reported is that only about 500 people showed up! Even w/Marc Anthony in tow they could only get a crowd like that in the Bronx.
