–Tiempo Final – each week, the characters face a dead end or an inevitable fate that will change their lives forever — from lovers who are exhausted by their anonymity and decide to disclose their relationship to a serial murderer who is hiding under the harmless image of a plumber or a bachelor party that quickly becomes one that will not be forgotten.

-El Joe, La Leyenda – a seventies period drama based on the exclusive story of music legend Joe Arroyo, a young, fun-loving but happily engaged musician, who indulges in a weekend fling with an alluring young woman, who unbeknownst to him, is the daughter of a music mogul. However, an unexpected series of twists and turns will conspire to bring the lovers together again years later and reignite their forbidden affair.

  1. Interesting channel line-up. It’s too bad I’m discriminated by my own latin race for being a white latino.

  2. James Davis Says:

    Oklahoma City, OK KOHC-CD 45.2 El Nacional Media

    Please change this station back to RETROTV! I am very disappointed to live
    in the United States and there are more spanish channels than english!

  3. What channel is mundo fox in Albuquerque New Mexico

  4. Philip V. Riggio Says:

    No one knew here there was a Joe Arroyo series or that it was on new channel MundoFox, 1300-1400 EDT. What on earth is it doing on that early, not that it wouldn’t be welcome anytime? Time mgt. got busy and let the world know about it. Actor Jair (Why Portuguese Jair instead of Spanish Jairo? Brazilians in family? Jair Rodrigues fans from the days of Elis and Jair in “Dois na Bossa?”) Romero, as the late and sorely missed Joe Arroyo, if he does English, ought to be grabbed by Hollywood: best guy of that ethnicity to hit the screen since Breno Mello as Orfeu in 1959′s “Orfeu Negro.” (I wondered if he wasn’t a Brazilian actor because the sound track is very slightly off, making it look like Spanish dubbed over Portuguese.)
    You like the music, you’ll love this one.

  5. What channel is mundo fox in Albuquerque New Mexico????
