TV 7 Vidas (Telecinco 1999-2006, Paz Vega, Elsa Pataky) Published 7 months ago on October 19, 2018 7 Vidas was a long running and popular Spanish sitcom which aired on Telecinco from 1999 to 2006. Its title translates as ‘7 lives’ and the symbol of the sitcom is a cat, in reference to the Spanish belief that cats have 7 lives. It was originally inspired by the American blockbuster Friends and turned into one of the longest running TV shows on Spanish Television and in the process also becoming one of the most popular Spanish shows of all time. It was in 7 Vidas that the now internationally famous actress Paz Vega and other Spanish actors first became household names in Spain. Plotwise the series tells the story of a group of friends in Madrid. David was in a coma for more than 18 years and suddenly awakes and starts discovering the new world in which he lives. His neighbour, Sole is an old woman with a penchant for slapping anyone who behaves in a way she dislikes round the back of the neck. Naturally Sole soon becames one of the show’s most popular characters. Other characters were Sole’s sexually frustrated son, Paco, Carlota David’s single sister and Laura, their cousin from Seville, initially Paco’s principal love interest and then David’s. production details Spain | TeleCinco | 204×50 minutes | 1999-2006 cast Amparo Baró as Soledad Huete Paz Vega as Laura Arteagabeitia Blanca Portillo as Carlota Carmen Machi as Aída Guillermo Toledo as Ricardo “Ríchard” Sáez Elsa Pataky as Cristina Yolanda Ramos as Charo Rivas Amparo BaróBlanca PortilloCarmen MachiComedyElsa PatakyGuillermo ToledoPaz VegaTelecincoYolanda Ramos Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV15 hours ago Cutting It (BBC-1 2002-2005, Amanda Holden, Sarah Parish) Comedy drama series.
