Caracol Television started shooting “Los Briceño”, the new super-series that will make part of Caracol Internacional’s 2019 portfolio. “Los Briceño” is produced by Juan Carlos Villamizar (“The Mafia Dolls 2” and “The Good Bandit”).
This is the story of Cecilia, better known as “La Chiqui”, the youngest member of a family of truck drivers. Within this truck universe, where macho men, popular music and love stories prevail, La Chiqui gets pregnant. The attractive young woman is trying to make her way in this environment dominated by machismo and discrimination, so she decides not to reveal her baby’s father name. Don Antonio, the family’s patriarch, feels offended for her decision and asks her to leave his home, sending her away to face a world where nobody believes in her because she is a woman. La Chiqui manages to succeed thanks to her hard work, earning the respect of everyone in the business.
