Chapter 2 also focuses on gender politics, but relating to a newly transnational context for Spain and Spanish television. Treating a unique example, the adaptation of a Colombian narcotelenovela to the very different Spanish context, the chapter documents the extensive, but complex and contradictory, relation between Spanish and Latin American TV, before focusing on the innovations brought to the original format by the Spanish remake. Chief amongst these is an obsessive focus on the male body (often naked and beaten), a surprising tendency in a series fiercely attacked in Spain itself for objectifying women’s bodies.
