"It has been an immense honor to put my creativity at the service of this wonderful series. A cross between Spain and Mexico with adorable characters, talent and irony, which introduces us to the most controversial facet of the art world. A mixture of high comedy, romance, adventure and thriller, with a leading couple that will make us fall in love, and plots that will make us hold our breath,” said Bestselling author Maria Dueñas, said.

The start of production for the new drama series will take place next week in Madrid, Spain. The original production is the first direct-to-series project by Dueñas, a new first-look deal between her and ViX. "ViX+ is all about opportunities for Spanish-speaking talent. This first-look deal with Maria Dueñas and the new series LOS ARTISTAS is an example of the quality of storytelling we are bringing to ViX+” said Vincenzo Gratteri, senior vice president of development at ViX+. 

"Los Artistas" tells the story of Cata, a young Mexican art connoisseur to whom the bitter twists of fate lead her to work in a mediocre restaurant in Madrid. Yago is a young Spanish antique dealer, who is forced by bad luck to close his business. Unexpectedly, they get to know each other. The chemistry that develops between them, coupled with the need to find a way out of their harsh circumstances, makes them a seductive couple looking for clients to sell magnificent works of art to. The problem is that such works are fake. Extremely fake. Even so, with talent, brazenness and audacity, they will achieve their goals in an attractive, addictive series, full of humanity, unexpected turns, irony and beauty.
