Possibly-awesome show alert: HBO Latino is launching a new original series set in a fictional Mexican women's prison. The drama, titled Capadocia, will begin airing on September 10th and focuses on the corruption and abuse within women's prisons and the tensions between a prison rights attorney (Dolores Heredia) and a corporate shill who wants to privatize them (Juan Manuel Bernal). (Lady Oz: En Español?) The series will also run subtitled on-demand for non-Spanish-speaking viewers. [Time]
Slightly off topic, but not really, has anyone else seen Mandrake on HBO Latino? The guy is a total womanizing prick, but also a great lawyer, you know that whole thing. Anyway, it's quite good, and also available On Demand. The quality (storyline, looks, etc.) is similar to other HBO series too.
