.- A TV series for young people entitled “Vida Mia,” which touches on modern-day issues from a Catholic perspective, is gaining popularity and may soon reach a wider audience in Mexico.

Produced by Guadalupe Communications, the series has run for one season on TV4 in Leon, and it may soon reach the airwaves in cities such as Guadalajara, Veracruz and Toluca.  “Vida Mia” tells the story of Camila, a young girl whose mother decided to let her live rather than having an abortion.  Camila grows up with her father.  “She faces the challenge of leading her own life and making the best decisions.  She doesn’t always do so, but she does try.  Together with her friends from school, she will go through a series of situations that will allow us to develop the lives of the boys and girls,” said director Jose Antonio Takano.

“We didn’t want to do the classic documentary in order to tell young people about the risks of anorexia and drug use. Rather, we want to present these issues in an attractive way, and that has been part of the success of this series,” Takano said.

“We are in talks with stations in Colima, Morelos, Guadalajara, Chiapas, Durango and Zacatecas,” he continued.  “We’ve sent them demos and even entire episodes and they like the way we convey the importance of values and the family to young people,” the director said.
