Superstore may have ended earlier this year, but the show is already planning a comeback. Sort of.
It’s been announced that the NBC comedy is getting an all Spanish speaking adaptation. Titled Supertitlán, it will have the same basic plot as its counterpart and also be produced by NBC Universal.
The show will star Jesús Zavala and Sofía Espinosa, featuring a talented supporting cast that includes Luz Aldán, Ricardo Peralta, Carlos Orozco, Aldo Escalante, Erika Franco, Azalia Ortíz, Martín Barba, Roberta Burns, Francisco de la Reguera, Viviana Serna, Amanda Farah, Harold Azuara, Laura de Ita, Nuria Blanco, and Eugenio Rubio.
“This format has a very special DNA and enables us to take a new step in Latin American comedy,” said executive producer Fidela Navarro. “By bringing on a new generation of talent across all areas, we’re able to innovate and produce a show with universal themes and high production values, which new audiences who consume content on various different platforms are able to identify with.”
Enrique Guillén, executive VP of commercial strategy and international development at Universal Studio Group, adds: “César Rodríguez and Joserra Zúñiga have recreated the original story with a fresh twist and comedy rhythm, which represents a young, authentic and universal Mexico. Jesús Zavala and Sofía Espinosa are the perfect actors to bring our lead characters to life. They are also joined by a wider cast full of talent and surprises, with exciting roles that promise to delight global audiences.”
The show has already been picked up for 48 one-hour episodes. No word yet on where the series will land, but we could definitely see it going to Peacock.
