POLITICAL STRUGGLE AND VOLATILE ROMANCE form the explosive backdrop to this epic series. SANGRE NEGRA is the cross-generational saga of the Santos Family, told telenovela style, combining the family drama of Dallas with the underworld intrigue of The Sopranos. Set in modern day Los Angeles, the Santos family consists of Guillermo Santos Sr. (Erik Estrada,) the wealthy patriarch of La Familia de Santos, his glamorous but vindictive wife Laura Santos (Sandra Santiago,) the eldest son Guillermo Jr. (Ricardo Herranz,) a slick and ambitious criminal defense attorney, Ricardo “Ricky” Santos (Antonio McKay,) the half Black, half Hispanic, illegitimate son of Guillermo Sr, and the youngest of the Santos brothers, Christian (Danny Arroyo,) who is a decorated police officer.
The charismatic Ricky is an upcoming star in the world of organized crime, rubbing elbows with mob leader, Vinny Sabatini (Robert Miano.) His half-brother, Christian, is dedicated to cleaning up the streets of Los Angeles, even if it means putting Ricky in jail. Francesca Natal (Arianna Gomez,) a former beauty queen and the mother of Ricky’s daughter Natalya (Francesca Herranz,) is engaged to Christian. Finally, there is Miguel Santos (Angel Garet,) the 23-year-old college student and nephew of the Santos brothers, who is seduced into the underworld by his Uncle Ricky.
The series features the constant battle between good and evil and how the choices made will determine the path each character will take to achieve the American Dream.
