|Amo Despertar Contigo premieres August 30 on Univision.|
Amo Despertar Contigo follows the story of Pablo Herminio (Daniel Arenas), a bodyguard for Antonia Santamaria (Aura Cristina Geithner), a wealthy flower-industry mogul, and his attraction to Maia Alcalá (Ela Velden), the beautiful daughter of Antonia’s business rival and former fiancé, Othon Alcalá (Enoc Leaño). Pablo is happy with his job as a bodyguard until he meets Maia at a floral conference. But their budding romance turns out to be anything but a bed of roses as a long-standing rivalry between Antonia and Othon threatens to uproot any chance of the young couple finding happiness together.
Produced by Pedro Damian (Muchacha Italiana Viene a Casarse, Rebeldes, Clase 406, RBD: La Familia), this Televisa production also marks the return of Christian Chavez (RBD) to the small screen. The cast also includes Alejandro Calva, Arturo García Tenorio, Armando Silvestre, Leticia Huijara, Rodrigo Murray Ana Cioccheti, and Sara Corrales.
The series marks Ela Velden’s first lead role in a telenovela following her successful performance in Televisa’s Muchacha Italiana Viene a Casarse which received a Premios TVyNovelas 2016 award as Best New Artist for her supporting role as the main character’s sister, Giana Bianchi.
Amo Despertar Contigo's theme song is a brand new version of Carlos Vives’ hit song “Volví a Nacer” featuring urban superstar Maluma, which was launched this month to celebrate the premiere of the telenovela.
