Development Pitch

This is a great family drama - think Falcon's Crest meets Dynasty but with a Latin flair. Huerta Cigars is a result of the combined passion of patriarch Alejandro Huerta, who emigrated from pre-Castro Cuba to Nicaragua, and his sons Roberto and Manuel. Their unwavering dedication to their dream of producing the best cigars made for a successful business. Sofia Huerta is Don Roberto’s daughter, and she is making a name for herself with her own line of fine, boutique cigars. One late night phone call will change Sofia’s life forever. Rushing to Nicaragua from San Francisco, her only hope is that it isn’t too late to save her father. Add an arrogant son, Roberto Huerta, Jr. might be a Huerta in name, but his womanizing, drinking, and carefree lifestyle have kept him at arm’s length from his father. RJ think’s his father’s freak accident will leave him as the rightful heir of the family empire. He couldn’t have been more wrong. A turn of events will pit brother against sister as they fight for control of the Huerta empire. Sometimes secrets and lies aren’t the only thing living in the closet, and there is only one Huerta that can continue the family legacy of excellence in this romantic mystery with a twist. In Cigar Barons, blood isn’t thicker than water—it’s war.
