In New York City at its annual Upfront presentation, Univision unveiled its 2015-16 programming line-up at the Lyric Theatre in New York City. For novela fans, they announced the network will be introducing four new series: Antes Muerta Que Lichita, El Color De La Pasión, A Que No Me Dejas Corazón and Lo Imperdonable.

Following are the descriptions of the new series. Check back for the premiere dates, which will be posted here when they are announced.

Antes Muerta Que Lichita (I’d Rather Be Dead than Ordinary) 

Antes Muerta Que Lichita follows Lichita (Maite Perroni), who has been working at an ad agency for eight years, but feels undervalued and invisible. Deciding it’s time for a change, she transforms herself from the office "whipping girl" into the empowered Alicia. But no climb to the top is ever easy; along the way, she faces situations that test her character and values. At the same time, the single mother who raised her is undergoing a similar journey -- a path toward entrepreneurship. This story about women finding their power within features innovative storytelling techniques, like one character's empowerment blog and a novela-within-a-novela, which fans can follow online. (Monday – Friday, Primetime, Televisa)

El Color De La Pasión (The Color of Passion)

El Color De La Pasión features a strong female lead, but in this case, her strength is her ability to crush the happiness of others and destroy their lives.

Adriana, the oldest of three sisters, is married to Alonso, and her two sisters live with them. Magdalena, the middle sister, joins a convent after her fiancé disappears on her wedding day. Rebecca, the youngest, hides her love for Alonso. One day Adriana suffers a terrible accident and only her baby Lucia survives.

Taking advantage of the situation, Rebecca marries Alonso, unfortunately there is no happily ever after for this couple. As time passes, a grown-up Lucia finds the potential for true love with Marcelo, but Rebecca’s hatred for her as well as a family secret threatens to keep them apart. Will their love survive? Filmed in Puebla, a world-heritage site famed for its architecture, beauty and cultural significance. Featuring Esmeralda Pimentel, Erick Elias, Rene Strickler, Claudia Ramirez, Eugenia Cauduro. (Monday – Friday, Primetime, Televisa)

A Que No Me Dejas Corazón

 From the producer of the megahit Amor Bravio, A Que No Me Dejas Corazón is a sweet story of young love, where despite obstacles and betrayal, love does triumph, if not in the present at least it will in future generations. It is a harrowing story where power, envy, selfishness and the desire for possession tragically mark the deep love between Paulina and Adrián, who nevertheless manage to perpetuate their love through their daughter Valentina and their beloved Mauricio. (Monday – Friday, Primetime, Televisa)

Lo Imperdonable (The Unforgiveable)

Lo Imperdonable is a tale of revenge and love starring Ana Brenda and Ivan Sanchez.

Alejandro travels to the jungle where his half-brother, Martin, is mining gold to satisfy the ambition of the woman he wants to marry. Betrayed by the woman two weeks before he strikes gold, Martin takes his life before his brother arrives. His grief-stricken brother, Alejandro, travels back to the city to get revenge by marrying the woman who caused this tragedy and making her life miserable. But the only clue he has to her identity is a medallion engraved with a mysterious phrase. When he encounters two women with names that match, he discovers his plan flaw: revenge can turn into love. Filmed in Huasteca, one of the most exotic and bio-diverse locations in Mexico. (Monday – Friday, Primetime, Televisa)
