If you miss the Hypermarket family … they will not come back. But a new Spanish-language adaptation, first announced in February, is brewing, and many names for the main cast have been announced by NBC Universal Studio Group, including the two main cast, by Variety. The serial adaptation, titled Supertitlan, is set to tell a story similar to that of its American counterpart, with employees of a big box chain store dealing with surreal (and funny) customers and doing the bad sides of working for a big company. .
The main actors of Supertitlan will be Jesús Zavala and Sofia espinosa. Javala is best known internationally for his work on Netflix’s first original Spanish-language series, the Comedy Cuervos Club. Espinosa rose to prominence after playing Mexican pop star Gloria Trevi in Gloria. They will be joined by Luz Aldan (Netflix La Casa de las Flores), Ricardo Peralta (Sobrevivi), Carlos Orozco (La Casa de las Flores), Aldo Escalante (Cuervos Club), Erika Franco (Margarita), Azalia ortiz (Dodo), Martín barba (Yo Soy Franky), Roberta burns (Qué the Pasa a Mi Familia?), Francisco de la Reguera (Sr vila), Viviana Serna (Señor de los Cielos), Amanda Farah (La Casa de las Flores), Harold Azuara (Rosario Tijeras), Laura from Ita (Efectos Secundarios), Nuria Blanco (El Vato), and Eugenio Rubio (Sobreamor).
Supertitlan has received a large order for the first season: the series will have 48 one-hour episodes, which is a lot for the number of episodes we are used to but that’s perfectly normal considering the standards of telenovelas from Latin America. Plot details are still being kept under wraps, but given the length of the run, it’s possible that the Hypermarket the adaptation will be oriented more towards the territory of dramatic comedy.
When it comes to adaptation ideas, Executive Vice President of Business Strategy and International Development at Universal Studio Group, Enrique Guillen, praised the format and shared his enthusiasm for reserving the main cast:
“César Rodriguez and Joserra Zúñiga [the directors and showrunners] recreated the original story with a new twist and comedic rhythm, which represents a young, authentic and universal Mexico. Jesús Zavala and Sofía Espinosa are the perfect actors to bring our main characters to life. They are also joined by a larger cast full of talent and surprises, with exciting roles that promise to delight audiences worldwide. “
The original Hypermarket aired on NBC for six seasons, from 2015 to 2021, and starred America Ferrera and Ben feldman. The latest episode aired earlier this year to an average audience of over 33 million viewers. Universal Studio Group has not announced a release date for Supertitlan.
