"Pasión y poder" was a Mexican telenovela produced by José Alberto Castro for Televisa. It's a remake of a 1988 telenovela by the same name 'Pasión y poder' and it aired from October 5, 2015 to April 10, 2016. The main stars are Susana González and Jorge Salinas.
The main drama revolves around two families, the Montenegro and the Gómez-Luna. Since some years ago, Arturo Montenegro and Eladio Gómez-Luna disputed the love of Julia Vallado, who finally married Eladio. Since then, Julia has lived unhappy, due to the mistreatment and humiliation of her husband. Julia only finds peace in her son David, a kind young man who is completely different from his father.
Arturo, after becoming a widow after his first wife passes away, married the frivolous Nina Pérez, an actress, with whom he has 3 children: Erick, Regina and Daniela. Arturo, being always very concentrated in his work, does not realize that his son Miguel, born of his first marriage, is a victim of constant humiliation on Nina's, Erick's and Daniela's part. The only people who show affection for Miguel are his sister Regina and his sister-in-law Consuelo, of whom he is completely in love in secret.
The rivalry between Montenegro and the Gómez-Luna grows at the moment when Regina and David fall in love, deciding to start a relationship and several members of the family oppose. On the other hand, a casual encounter, causes Arturo to be rethink about his feelings towards Julia, and both want to fight for their love. However, the envious Nina, Eladio and their children, will do the impossible to keep them separated.
- One of the biggest Televisa's ratings failures. Although it featured a popular cast, the viewers did not follow the story daily as other telenovelas.
- Michelle Renaud originally auditioned for the role of Gabriela, however was instead offered main young protagonist role.
- Cynthia Klitbo auditioned for the main villain role that instead went to Marlene Favela.
- Mayrín Villanueva auditioned for the role of female protagonist Julia Vallado that instead went to Susana González.
- First antagonistic role for Fernando Colunga. Although his character started as a villain, due to viewer's rejection of the show, he was transformed into a main protagonist.
