The Mafia Dolls 2 hit Colombian prime time television last night. Following on the great success of its first season in front of the national audience and the international market, the stars of this story come back to face the consequences of having smiled at the Mafia. With a 35.2 share and 10.0 rating points, The Mafia Dolls 2 was watched by 4.9 million viewers, becoming #1 program in the slot.
In its first season, "The Mafia Dolls" introduced, for the first time, the dark world of drug trafficking from a female point of view. The audience witnessed the luxuries and excesses experienced by the women who shared their lives with the most powerful and dangerous Mafia lords. They lived a life of princesses, but paid a very high price for the consequences.
Eight years after, we meet again with the survivors of this story, struggling to leave their past behind and persevere in a society that condemns them for having belonged to the mafia. The personal and family dilemmas, the internal conflicts with their principles and the fight to eke out a living will make them question their lives and lead them to cross the thin line between good and evil.
"Making a second part to a successful series requires creativity, guts, and lots of talent. Those were the raw materials of The Mafia Dolls 2, a series that pulls off a much more nuanced and interesting point of view of an evolving issue about which there are still many things to be said before feeling it has been understood, absorbed and, above all, overcome," stated Dago García, Caracol Television's Vice President of Production and Content.
The series was shot in an international format using 4K technology and is directed by Andrés Birman, Lucho Orjuela and Juan Carlos Vasquez, with the executive production of Juan Carlos Villamizar.
Lisette Osorio, International Sales Vice President, noted: "The Mafia Dolls is a series that surprised the international market and made a mark through its pioneering take on a subject as controversial as the Mafia, from a female point of view. Now, in its second season, we present a provocative story, enriched by the viewpoint of five women who fight to survive the consequences of their acts."
