Colombia's Narco Novelas

Why are Colombians tuning in to the gritty tales of narco trafficking? 

Remember the days when telenovelas were only watched by parents and abuelita? And when the ending was always the same — prince charming together at last with the poor but overly pretty girl?

Telenovelas are evolving. No longer is the traditional rags-to riches story the only formula working for TV networks.

The new trend seems to be the “narco novelas”— a new sub genre of soap operas originating in Colombia, which not only targets a younger audience but tells stories that seem literally ripped out of any news site of today.
