Below are two of the opening themes to "Mundo Sin Fin" (World Without End) written by Nathan Postell IV under the pen name Nicolas Coatza (pronounced kwät-zäh) . It is my goal that once the final editing of the screenplay is complete, to begin shopping the novela to production companies such as Tyler Perry Productions and Grupo Televisa, a Mexican mass media company and the largest media organization in Latin America. (Go big or go home, right?)
Elizabet Villalobos-LaBeija, is the matriarch of New Orleans' richest and most influential Latino families. She is a strong, competent woman, incredibly quick with a quip and an accomplished Doctor. In addition to running a community hospital that specializes in providing services to low-income families, Elizabet is a regular fixture in New Orleans' social and charity scene. For many in the community, Elizabet, her husband, Andres and their three sons Sebastian, Dante and JoseMaría, serve as sterling examples of what it means to come from a "good family."
To outside observers, the Villalobos-LaBeija's have it all.
Most New Orleanians don't know about Elizabet's tortured past as a child in Mexico. They do not know that Elizabet is the beloved, accomplished and mentally unstable daughter of Don Ibrahim LaBeija - one of the most powerful and dangerous men in the fictional town of Gaviano, Mexico.
Those that covet her life don't realize that Elizabet struggles with her need to maintain control over her husband, Andres, a serial adulterer unable to remain faithful.
Her fellow New Orleanians don't realize that her eldest son Sebastian is secretly struggling with drug addiction, her middle son Dante, after years of feeling isolated from the ideals of his family uses religion as an escape and that their youngest son, JoseMaría, a hopeful, loving (and to Doctora's dismay) homosexual is in love with Bobby, an African American man several rungs below the Villalobos-LaBeija social ladder.
As time goes on, her sons grow and her husbands inability to be faithful shows no end, Elizabet finds it is difficult to control her family as she once did.
Family secrets will be exposed, opening up old psychological wounds, pain and emotions with New Orleans and Mexico as dangerous backdrops.
Unlike many current telenovelas that only feature Hispanic characters, Mundo Sin Fin draws on the "small world theory" and includes central characters that are African American, Middle Eastern and South East Asian, their characters and storylines interwoven with the Villalobos-LaBeija family.
Although Mundo Sin Fin follows the telenovela style of writing, this story is a unique blend of drama, danger, intrigue, chaos and zemblanity.
