NBC Puts a Bra on Breast Opera


I hope you haven't been too excited about seeing an American version of the wildly popular Colombian telenovela Sin Tetas No Hay Paraíso (Without Tits There Is No Paradise) on NBC.

The project has been put on hold, indefinitely. According to EW.com, the project had been a pet of NBC's co-chairman Ben Silverman, who no doubt wanted to duplicate the monster success ABC has experienced by adapting Betty La Fea for the U.S. market as Ugly Betty.

Meanwhile Telemundo, which like NBC is owned by GE, has developed its own version of the original soap-Sin Senos No Hay Paraíso (Without Breasts There is No Paradise). I wonder if its the title that has NBC so skiddish? Why not simply ask Phil Collins if they can call it Another Day in Booby Paradise? Geesh, do I have to think of everything?
