Sony Pictures Television (SPT) will premiere Los Simuladores, a Mexican series, in the United States on November 15 exclusively on Cinelatino, a Spanish-language movie channel. Based on an Argentine series of the same name, Los Simuladores centers on the adventures of four men operatives, trained and prepared to carry out sting operations.

Shot in high definition, the show features a cast of Mexican actors, including Tony Dalton (Matando Cabos, 13 Miedos, Sultanes del Sur), Arath de la Torre (La Parodia, La Hora de La Papa), Ruben Zamora (7 Dias, Pasion) and Alejandro Calva (The Producers, The Pillow Man, Sin Memoria). They dedicate their efforts and skills to solving human-interest conflicts for their clients, including troubled marriages, dangerous loan sharks, swindling agents and broken hearts.
The team features Mario Santos (Tony Dalton), the brain, who comes up with the plans; Emilio Vargas (Arath de la Torre), the chameleon, who plays different characters in the operations; Pablo Lopez (Alejandro Calva), the go-to man, in charge of logistics and technical aspects; and Gabriel Medina (Ruben Zamora), the researcher, who finds the necessary information for Santos to come up with the plans.
“This is the highest-caliber premium series currently available to U.S. audiences in Spanish, and we’re excited to offer it exclusively to our viewers,” said Jim McNamara, chairman of Cinelatino. “The superb production values, excellent cast, and compelling story lines make this THE must-see series of the season.”
The series also features Natalie Esperon (Por un Beso, La Esposa Virgen and El Nombre del Amor), Rafael Amaya (Las Dos Caras de Ana and Amor Letra Por Letra), Silverio Palacios (Morirse en Domingo, Amor a Morir, Matando Cabos) and Adal Ramones (Otro Rollo con Adal Ramones).
In late 2008, Los Simuladores debuted in Mexico on Televisa and throughout Latin America on Sony Entertainment Television. After a successful first season, a second season of the series began production earlier this year.
Los Simuladores is the second premium series to air on Cinelatino. The channel premiered the series Tiempo Final in the spring of 2009. The first two episodes of Los Simuladores are scheduled to premiere on Cinelatino on Sunday, November 15, at 7 p.m. EST and repeat at 11 p.m. EST (4 p.m. and 8 p.m. PT). A new episode of the 13 episode series will air every Sunday at 7 p.m. EST and will repeat at 11 p.m. EST (4 p.m. and 8 p.m. PT) during the season. Cinelatino plans to air Season Two in early 2010.
